Experienced Premises Liability Lawyers
Property owners have a duty to provide safe conditions for their patrons and other visitors. If you are injured on someone else’s property, however, you are not automatically entitled to compensation. To bring a premises liability claim, you must show that there was a safety hazard and that the ownership/management ignored the problem or should have been aware of the dangerous condition.
Many slip-and-fall victims do not know their rights and fail to pursue a claim. Many people try to handle their own claims, thinking that the owner will “do the right thing” and make amends. Instead, the tipped-off property owner addresses the hazard and denies liability.
Faith, Ledyard & Faith, PLC, has brought successful claims against owners of supermarkets, retail stores and shopping malls, bars and restaurants, parking lots, apartment buildings and other businesses and commercial properties. (In limited circumstances, homeowners or municipal entities may also be liable for damages.)
Our experienced personal injury attorneys act swiftly to document the hazard and talk to witnesses before the owner can clean up the mess or fix the problem. The dangerous condition could be spilled or leaking fluid, food or another slippery substance, a torn carpet, a pothole or raised concrete, missing handrails or missing stairwell lights, a building code violation, exposed wiring or another hidden hazard.
We Take Slip-And-Fall Injuries Seriously
Slip-and-falls get a bad name from people who make false claims or are not seriously hurt. We know that these accidents can cause serious or permanent injuries such as head trauma, facial injuries, broken legs, hip fractures, broken wrists and knee injuries.
We investigate quickly and carefully to document the negligence and all damages, including medical care, future surgery, lost wages, permanent disability or disfigurement, and pain and suffering.
