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 brain, 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 100 Trial Lawyers" among others.

When an individual is injured, not only does the injured suffer, but at times the family too. We can assist you in holding all negligent parties responsible by assisting with medical costs, rehab costs, future medical costs, and all your pain and suffering.
