Helping You After A Slip-And-Fall Injury
When a person enters upon the property of another, the property owner generally must exercise some duty of care to ensure the safety of the premises. Oftentimes, as a result of an owner’s failure to properly manage the property, the entrant suffers some injury.
This injury is known as a premises liability injury, and one of the most common types of these injuries is the slip-and-fall. If you have suffered a slip-and-fall injury, our attorney at The Law Office of Aman N. Shah can help. Our experienced lawyer can review your facts and help determine if you have a viable claim.
Slip-And-Falls Can Happen Anywhere
Slip-and-fall accidents are characterized by the entrant slipping, tripping, stumbling, or falling, and sustaining an injury in the process.
These accidents can happen anywhere that regular maintenance is required to keep entrants safe, including:
- Construction sites
- Grocery stores
- Amusement parks and stadiums
- Private residences
Essentially, any popularly frequented place is a potential site for a slip-and-fall injury.
Obtaining Counsel Is Crucial
When it comes to slip-and-fall injuries, property owners will deny responsibility and minimize their own liability. You need to take pictures at the scene of the fall, get the name of any witnesses and document as much as possible the condition of the property and the elements that contributed to your fall.
This is one reason why it is so important for you to obtain the help of an attorney as soon after the injury as possible.
