More often than not, injuries incurred by falling on a slick surface or uneven sidewalk are relatively minor and will heal after six or eight weeks of rest and recovery. But every case is different. For some individuals, that fall might require a sequence of surgeries to heal the damage. And if an elderly person breaks a hip in a fall on an unlit stairwell, the injury probably represents a permanent disability and the difference between independent living and the need for nursing care.
Our slip and fall lawyers investigate and present claims for damages in cases against retailers, landlords, developers, general contractors, hotels, and restaurants in cases where serious injury results from the failure to keep walkways, stairwells, and open floors dry, clean, and well lit. We also handle cases involving building or safety code violations, defective or missing handrails, and structurally unsound balconies and overhead structures, where the injuries caused by the property owner's negligent maintenance are usually far more severe than a sprained ankle or broken wrist.
In the more severe injuries caused by dangerous property conditions, we work to document not only the costs of treating but also the expenses of living with the consequences of a serious head injury or permanent spinal damage.
In every case, our investigation of our client's overall physical and economic losses is just as thorough and fully documented as our research into the defendant's liability. Our objective in all premises liability cases is to help you realize the maximum recovery available on your claim.
