Selinger Law Group is dedicated to helping victims who have suffered personal injuries resulting from slip and fall accidents. Companies and municipalities are responsible for the maintenance of their streets and sidewalks. This means that they are responsible for cleaning sidewalks when it snows and ensuring that they are safe for you—the pedestrian—to safely walk on their property.
Slip, Trip, and Fall Lawsuit Information
Do you know that property owners are often responsible if someone falls on their property?
- If you fall on the sidewalk because of ice
- If you fall in a supermarket because of a wet aisle
- If you fall down a set of stairs without a proper handle or with poor lighting
Property Owners are Responsible for Safety
There is no real way to ensure that the streets are safe and the supermarket aisles are clean except through the threat of a lawsuit. This risk encourages property owners, shop owners, and town supervisors to make sure the places where you walk every day are safe.
Slip and fall accidents are serious. These types of incidents account for 15% of all accidental deaths, second only to motor vehicle accidents. Fall victims can miss work and suffer permanent injuries. If you have been seriously injured in a slip and fall accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your pain, suffering, and lost wages.
What should I do after a slip and fall accident?
- Seek necessary medical treatment.
- Protect your legal rights by protecting the evidence. If your injury is severe, you may need to find legal help for your injuries to cover treatment, recovery, and lost wages.
- If you have been in an accident, try to record the exact location. Take pictures, speak to managers (if applicable), and take other necessary steps to document exactly how your injury happened. If you can, take any relevant evidence. For example, if you fell on a banana peel, then you should take that as evidence.
- Case Assessment: find help for your injury. If you or a loved one has suffered from a serious injury, we may conduct an inquiry, free of charge, to find out if insurance parties and liable parties may have to compensate you for your injuries.
