Attorneys Advocating For People Injured In Slip-And-Fall Accidents
Slip-and-fall accidents often happen in a matter of seconds but can result in lifelong injuries. At McGlone Law, our 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.
From law offices in Terre Haute, our personal injury law firm has served Indiana and Illinois since 1964. Our father-son attorney team brings eight decades of experience to the table.
We are experienced in proving that property owners were responsible for dangerous conditions for reasons that may include the following:
- The owner/possessor created the condition.
- The condition existed for such a long time that the owner/possessor should have discovered and fixed it prior to the slip-and-fall incident.
- The owner/possessor knew of the condition and negligently failed to correct it.
Slip-and-fall accidents typically fall under the legal category of premises liability cases, and determining the person responsible for your injuries requires thorough investigation.
Whether your accident was on commercial property, residential property or government property, the goal in a slip-and-fall injury case is to seek compensation from those responsible. Each case may depend in part 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.
Trusted Representation For Premises Liability Claims And Lawsuits
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 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.
