Slip and falls have many causes

Our clients include people injured because of:

Defective stairs and stair rails
Code violations of all kinds
Falling masonry and construction debris
Weak handrails
Poor lighting
Broken fencing
Failure to provide a security guard
Ice and snow
Inadequate construction site fencing
Weak or poorly constructed wooden walkways and boardwalks

Dangerous public premises can be anywhere

Injuries can occur in retail stores, fast food restaurants, office buildings, apartment complexes, and other commercial premises. The law requires owners of such properties to maintain safe conditions for customers, visitors, and passersby. When they do not, they may be liable for the injuries caused by their negligence.

We have helped many people who have suffered broken legs or ankles, head injuries, and back injuries because of slip and fall accidents such as these. Call one of our Three offices to learn if we can help you.
