Call to discuss if a slip-and-fall lawyer can be of benefit to you.
The case that a slip-and-fall lawyer would file on your behalf would be a personal injury lawsuit, and it falls under the general category of what is known as “premises liability law.” This simply means that the occupants or owners of property have a legal responsibility to prevent injuries to people who are on their premises and that they can be held liable if they have not taken care and someone is hurt.
There is a significant reason why you should consult with a slip-and-fall lawyer if you have been hurt. The attorney can determine if what happened was simply “an accident.” They do happen when a person is not paying attention while on the property. There may be no liability if the victim was at fault. There must be negligence, and that must have caused the injury. There had to have been a dangerous condition or a risky situation.
