Slip and Fall Lawyers
Slip and fall claims are often the result of injuries sustained due to a dangerous or hazardous condition on property. Such may include claims for injuries due to failure to remove ice and snow, negligent business operations, negligent maintenance and/or poor construction. Different types of property owners have different types of responsibilities or duties to the public. For example, a commercial owner of property may have more responsibility than a residential property owner. The lawyer must know why the injured victim was on the property. The reason the injured victim was on the property could change the property owners’ responsibility to the injured victim.
Some property owners are immune or protected from lawsuits. Some commercial property owners have clauses in their leases that make their tenants responsible for the property conditions. In snow and ice cases, the snow removal company and/or management company may be responsible. Your lawyer must determine which individuals, partnerships, corporations, or other entities to include in your lawsuit.
Your lawyer must investigate and understand all the issues and law involved in your particular case.
Many people believe that if they fall on someone’s property, the owner is responsible no matter how the accident occurred. That is a common misconception of the general public and is why you must consult with lawyer.
