When Is A Fall Due To Negligence?

There are many reasons a fall can be caused by negligence. Some examples include:

  • Failure to repair a broken step
  • Not cleaning up a spill or wet floor
  • Ice- and snow-covered pathways that are not properly salted or cleared

Negligence is a simple principle: If you were harmed because someone failed to do something they are supposed to do, or did something they shouldn't have done, you are likely looking at a negligence issue.

What Is Premises Liability Insurance?

Premises liability is the type of insurance liability that takes care of property-related injuries. A property owner is responsible for keeping their property safe for people who come on to their property. If a person fails to maintain their business property or a similar property, related injuries are eligible for a premises liability insurance claim.

What Does A Slip-And-Fall Settlement Cover?

A successful settlement provides you with funds for many of your injury-related expenses. This includes compensation for medical expenses, follow-up exams, long-term treatment, lost wages and other expenses, pain and suffering in both the present and future. Speak with a lawyer to find out what you may be able to cover.

Do I Need A Lawyer?

Yes. Insurance companies will often try to settle quickly and without fully accounting for your long-term needs. Furthermore, insurance companies have armies of claims adjusters working to minimize your claim. Our attorneys will meet with you, review the facts and work together to determine how to best advocate for your case. We will work tirelessly to pursue your claim. If we cannot settle your claim out of court, we will aggressively litigate your case all the way to trial.

Our attorneys have been recognized statewide and nationally for their trial skills. While no attorney can guarantee a successful jury verdict, we will use our experience and work ethic on your behalf to get the best results possible.

A lawyer is the best way to make sure your injuries are covered in full. To maximize your settlement, speak with one of our attorneys today. Email us to schedule your consultation, or call 860-351-3552.
