Why Hire a Slip & Fall Attorney
Private property owners, commercial business operators and even government entities are legally responsible to maintain their property and keep it safe from hazards. The owner of any type of property is responsible to look out for, and repair, any dangers or risks to anyone who is lawfully on their premises.
Slip and fall hazards can be temporary – such as a wet slippery floor, spilled grease, or an object on the floor. However, more permanent property defects – such as uneven sidewalk, a raised doorway threshold, or a non-level elevator – can also result in slip and fall accidents. And if the property owner or their employee reasonably should have known about the hazard that caused your slip and fall, you can sue them with a “premises liability” lawsuit.
Premises liability lawsuits can be very complicated, however, because they frequently involve more than one business, as well as multiple insurance companies. For example, if you trip going into Macy’s at the Lakewood Center Mall, you may be able to sue Macy’s, the mall owner, or both. In these cases everybody “points the finger” at everyone else – and insurance companies do everything they can to deny paying your slip and fall claim.
Hiring an aggressive and experienced slip and fall attorney is often the only way to hold the responsible property owner, and their insurance company, accountable.
