How Do Slip-and-Fall Accidents Happen?
Slip-and-fall accidents can occur due to:
- Unkempt walkways and steps
- Poorly lit hallways and staircases
- Cracked and damaged sidewalks
- Stores without displayed warning signs
- Loose or missing handrails
These accidents can happen at work, in stores, at other people’s homes and many other places. Those who are responsible for your injury should be held accountable. At The Orlow Firm, our attorneys are ready to assist you with your injury claim today.
Helping Injured People Obtain Fair Compensation
Our attorneys offer experienced legal help to people who have been injured due to unsafe property conditions. We handle serious injuries such as:
- Broken bones
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Head injuries
- Neck injuries
- Back injuries
Property owners, grocery store owners, retail store owners and even large corporations can be held liable for your injuries if negligence was the main cause of your slip-and-fall accident. It is just as unacceptable for a property owner to neglect the repair of cracked walkways and faulty railings on staircases as it is for a store owner to ignore standardized safety procedures by neglecting to place warning signs when the floor is wet or an item recently spilled on the floor.
