Goldblatt Singer – Experienced Slip and Fall Accident Attorneys
Property owners are responsible for maintaining an appropriate level of safety for all of their visitors, guests or customers – which means if you’ve had a slip and fall accident, someone could be responsible for helping you recover.
A slip and fall accident could occur pretty much anywhere – a home, a business, a restaurant, an amusement park or any place that a property owner should maintain safety for visitors. The most common causes are:
- Spills that have been left on the floor
- Dangerously placed objects that have been left in a walkway
- Unfixed tripping hazards, such as uneven pavement, potholes, cracks or any other type of surface inconsistency
What You Should Know About Slip and Fall Cases
After an accident and injury, you may hear or read conflicting information from others – including the property owner and insurance companies. Here are some important facts to keep in mind:
- They had a responsibility to act quickly. If the owner or employees knew about the hazard or even created it themselves, they are required to act in a timely manner to remedy it.
- If they didn’t know about a hazard, maybe they should have. Owners and their employees are responsible for providing a safe environment for their guests, which means they should stay aware of the conditions of the property.
- You shouldn’t be treated like a criminal. There has been a rise in fraud when it comes to slip and fall cases, which means that sometimes insurance companies treat people who’ve had slip and fall accidents like they’ve committed a crime. You deserve to be compensated for an unfair situation and shouldn’t be treated poorly—and a personal injury lawyer can help advocate for you.
