Slip and Fall Accident Attorney
Property owners have a responsibility to provide a safe environment for
anyone on or in their premises. They must remove any dangerous object
or repair a floor or walking hazard that could result in a slip and fall
accident. If a slippery area is known to the owners then they are obligated
to warn people of its dangers, they could be held liable with a
premises liability claim.
The dangerous environments that often lead to slip and fall accidents include:
- Failing to maintain the walking surfaces - uneven tiles, or floors
- Wet or slippery floors without warning signs
- Objects in walkway
- Poorly lighted stairways or halls
- Uneven floors, sidewalks or crosswalks, potholes
Slip and fall accidents can cause serious injuries to the
spine, internal organs and frequently lead to
wrongful death. Injuries such as
concussions and broken bones are often the result of a failure to properly maintain property.
How can I file a claim for compensation?
Slip and fall accidents have a statute of limitations under which you can
file a claim, so time is of the essence. Attempting to address the issue
of compensation on your own is extremely difficult. Without legal representation
from an attorney from Bostwick & Peterson you could accept an offer
that is far lower than you deserve. Our firm has won millions of dollars
in compensation for our clients and been awarded with nominations to "Top

Your injuries can cause severe financial strain on not only yourself but
your family as well. The negligent party should be held financially responsible

future medical treatments, lost wages and future predicted financial losses,
as well as pain and suffering. We know how to file a successful slip and
fall claim, and we will work tirelessly to pursue fair and full compensation.
