Slip & Fall and Dangerous Property Conditions

The World Health Organization reports that 424,000 fatal falls occur each year, making fall-related accidents the second leading cause of unintentional injury deaths, behind road traffic injuries. Though not fatal, approximately 37.3 million falls severe enough to require medical attention occur each year.  

Slip & fall accidents often occur when property owners fail to keep their premises safe for visitors. Proving a slip & fall case requires not only legal experience, but also expertise from professionals in a wide range of disciplines, depending upon the nature of the accident. For instance, engineers may be required to inspect and test premises for dangerous conditions such as irregular surfaces, improper handrails, inadequate maintenance, building code violations, faulty repairs, and many others. 

We have the financial resources to retain appropriate experts in all necessary disciplines, so we can establish how and why a slip & fall accident occurred. And because we have been working with these experts for decades, we understand the “science” behind each slip & fall accident.  

Our thorough, comprehensive approach to slip & fall and dangerous property conditions cases maximizes the compensation we get for our clients. 

We’re Here to Help You 

Insurance companies want to save money. They are not on your side. Contact us immediately. 

We fight so you’ll receive justice and compensation for your injuries and other losses by holding the property owners—and their insurers—accountable. Insurers work to minimize payouts and avoid lawsuits. They do not care about your best interests. Contact us to find out whether you have grounds for a lawsuit before you speak to an insurer. 

We immediately evaluate your case so you know the status. 

Because we have extensive experience handling slip & fall and dangerous property conditions cases and understand the medical, technical, and legal issues, we can review your case quickly and effectively. If your case is right for us, we’ll proceed with a full investigation and legal analysis, and determine the likelihood of a favorable settlement or need to file a lawsuit. We will always explain every step and development and counsel you on all possible outcomes so you can make informed decisions. 

Because a monetary award will significantly impact your life, we put our negotiation and trial skills and experience to work. 

We’re master negotiators, so you can rely on us to negotiate the best possible settlement for you. If the parties can’t agree on money, we’re prepared to file a lawsuit and aggressively try your case in the courtroom. And we have a proven track record of securing winning verdicts and other favorable resolutions in slip & fall and dangerous property conditions cases. 

Our personal bond is as important as our legal representation. 

Slip & fall accidents can cause catastrophic injuries and death. We understand the loss and anguish that the victim and family experience. The medical issues and choices can be daunting.

Our team helps clients in these emotionally tough times by being accessible, supportive, and genuine. Our sensitivity and compassion make us better lawyers, too.
