Holding negligent property and business owners accountable
A slip and fall accident can happen anywhere, including supermarkets (such as Wegman’s, Publix, ALDI), department stores (including Target and Walmart), big box stores (Costco, BJ’s Wholesale Club, Sam’s Club) and hardware stores (Home Depot, Lowe’s). People are hurt in hotels, small businesses, restaurants, bars, amusements parks. Slip and fall accidents also happen in parking lots, public spaces and even private homes.
These accidents can cause a wide range of injuries. They include broken bones, sprains and strains, and injuries to the head, neck or back. You may need surgery, medication, physical therapy and follow-up appointments with appointments. Medical expenses can add up quickly, causing financial stress.
How do slip and fall accidents happen? People can lose their footing because of spills, recently mopped floors, loose floorboards, torn carpets, loose throw rugs, missing handrails on stairs, cracked pavement, bags or wrappers on the floor or poor lighting. Insurance companies may take the position that “accidents happen.” But it’s not that simple.
Property and business owners have a responsibility to keep their premises safe. That means they need to fix any potential hazards or warn customers or visitors about them. If they fail to meet this responsibility, they can be held accountable when someone is hurt.
We make things right by building strong cases
Recovering compensation is complicated because property and business owners often deny doing anything wrong and don’t accept responsibility. That means you have to prove the owner was negligent, and that the negligence led directly to your injury.
Insurance companies will try lots of ways to avoid paying you compensation. They may deny any liability whatsoever. They may challenge the seriousness of your injuries or argue they were pre-existing. They may offer you a settlement that falls far short of covering your damages. They may even blame you for what happened.
