At Paris & Chaikin, PLLC, we know that slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall injuries often occur as a result of a property owner's negligence. He or she has the responsibility to maintain the premises safe and free of any defective and hazardous conditions that could result in an accident.
If for any reason a hazard exists on the property, a visible warning must be posted. If inadequate property maintenance or failure to warn of a dangerous condition results in an injury, the victim may seek financial compensation from the property owner. Compensation can cover:
- Lost wages from being unable to work
- Medical expenses from hospital stays or doctor visits
- Pain and suffering from the accident
- Other damages
Such Accidents Come In All Kinds, But All Require Legal Help
Individuals face slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall hazards daily. Sidewalks, stairs, buildings, parking lots, roads and even private homes may have dangerous conditions that result in serious injuries. These may include:
- Wet floors
- Garbage or debris in the walkway
- Uneven stairs
- Icy steps
- Other hazards
Our slip-and-fall lawyers understand how to hold negligent property owners responsible for the injuries they allow.
In one recent case, we obtained a $245,000 verdict on behalf of a 70-year-old woman who tripped on a sidewalk defect and lost four teeth.
