Slip and fall accidents often happen in a matter of seconds but can result in lifelong injuries. At McGlone Law, our Terre Haute personal injury attorneys can investigate the incident and build your case. Medical bills can quickly pile up, so it is important to get knowledgeable legal representation as soon as possible after your accident.
Slip and fall accidents often fall under “premises liability” cases, and determining the person responsible for your injuries requires thorough investigation. Whether your accident was on commercial property, residential property, or even government property, it is important to seek compensation from those responsible. Each case depends on whether the property owner took precautions to make sure slipping and tripping were not likely to happen, and whether you were careless and failed to avoid the condition that caused your fall.
Slip and fall accidents can have many different causes. Common dangerous conditions include uneven pavement, slippery floors, icy parking lots, narrow stairs, poor lighting, torn carpeting, cracked sidewalks, and hidden hazards such as potholes. Proving negligence requires investigation of the incident to establish that the owner of the property knew the dangerous condition and failed to act to reduce the likelihood of an accident.
Whether the condition was too expensive to fix or the property owner was simply careless, our Terre Haute personal injury lawyers can talk to witnesses, examine repair reports of the property owner, and look at police records to try to prove the liability of those responsible. Injured clients in Terre Haute rely on McGlone Law for our extensive knowledge, experience, and personal attention, and we charge no fees unless we win.
