There are many reasons you may slip, trip or fall, but it is the responsibility of residential and commercial property owners or occupiers to ensure their premises are safe. If you slipped and fell because of someone else's negligence, you may be able to seek compensation for your injuries.
At Farrell Law Group, we provide honest legal advice and experienced litigation services for those with personal injury or insurance claims, including slip-and-fall accidents and other premises liability claims. We will take the time to fully explain your rights, the process, the risks and how the claim assessment is likely to be calculated. Our goal is to ensure you are comfortable at all times with the process.
Common Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents
We bring all of our experience and resources to help those who have suffered slip-and-fall injuries due to:
- Unmarked slippery surfaces/water spills
- Uneven flooring
- Defective construction
- Cracked or uneven pavement on sidewalks, in parking lots or in public areas
- Broken steps
- Broken or missing guardrails
- Ice and snow hazards
- Unmarked holes or ditches
- Poor lighting
Even a seemingly minor fall can cause significant injury, from strained back muscles to broken bones. You may require specialized medical treatment or extended time off work to fully recover. We will take the time to understand the impact of your injury and seek compensation for all your short- and long-term care needs.
Handling Claims Involving Public Property
We handle claims that arise on both private and public property. Most municipalities have policies governing the regular maintenance of public sidewalks, roadways and other public areas, as well as snow and ice removal. If you were injured on public property, the investigation of whether these policies were followed can quickly become legally complex and time-consuming.
Our lawyer, Guy Farrell, will help you understand your rights and options. By providing an honest assessment of the possible claims you may have, he seeks to help you make informed decisions that protect your rights and best interests.
