Accidents happen. But if you suffer slip-and-fall accidents because someone failed to keep the property safe, the personal injury lawyers at Lourie Law Firm can help you fight to hold them accountable.
Owners of businesses and homes have a duty to take reasonable steps to keep their property safe and help prevent slip-and-fall accidents. Injuries can result when they don’t live up to that obligation.
Some injuries from slip-and-fall accidents are minor cuts and bruises. Others, though, can be extremely serious and have lasting consequences. Injuries to the neck, back or spine from slip-and-fall accidents can require long recovery periods. Traumatic brain injuries from blows to the head can cause severe damage and lasting consequences.
Lourie Law Firm has represented clients in a wide variety of slip-and-fall accidents, including those caused by:
- Wet floors
- Worn or damaged stairs
- Cluttered aisles
- Potholes in parking lots
- Uneven sidewalks
- Torn carpets or loose rugs
- Unsecured cords
- Poor lighting
- Loose floorboards
- Buildup of ice or snow
We’ve helped victims who have fallen in stores, shopping malls, restaurants, hotels, college campuses, medical facilities and nursing or care homes. We’ve help people who were injured on private property.
No matter the location, Lourie Law Firm slip-and-fall attorneys have the practical experience and legal skills to put together a solid case. It’s not uncommon for property owners to deny negligence or to try to shift blame to the victim. That’s where our team’s investigative skills come into play.
We review every detail of the case, from documents to photographs. We talk to witnesses. We find out if the property owner was aware, or should have been aware, of the hazard and if any steps were taken to correct it.
Once we establish negligence, we make a full assessment of your damages. This can include medical expenses, lost wages, emotional distress and pain and suffering. We’ll also consider any future medical care or lost wages if the injuries are extensive.
After that process is complete, we’re often able to negotiate settlements with insurance companies. If they’re not willing to be fair, though, we are fully prepared to take your personal injury lawsuit to trial.
If you’re injured in a slip-and-fall accident, call us as soon as possible. It’s important that our skilled personal injury attorneys get to work right away, so we can examine the scene and preserve evidence. It costs you nothing to talk to Lourie Law Firm.
