Slip and fall accidents can happen when you least expect them, such as while shopping, having dinner at a restaurant, or even in your own apartment building. If you are injured, your losses can be significant. Not only will you have steep medical bills, but you may also suffer financially if you are unable to work. The pain and suffering, and the impact on your personal relationships, can be devastating.
This is also known as a premise liability claim, which holds a property owner responsible for damages arising out of an injury on that person or entity’s property. Owners that occupy a property must make a reasonable effort to maintain a safe environment for visitors.
Every situation is unique, but there are some common causes involved with slip and fall cases, such as:
● Dangerous Surfaces: When debris or spills are not addressed within a reasonable time, victims may slip and sustain injuries.
● Cracked Sidewalks: A property owner is also responsible for exterior areas upon the premises, including sidewalks, driveways, and entryways. If you are hurt because you stumble upon uneven surfaces or broken pavement, you may have a slip and fall claim.
● Impassable Aisles and Thoroughfares: Especially in retail settings, inventory items, ladders, boxes, or equipment can create hazardous obstacles. A customer who is injured while attempting to navigate around them may have a right to compensation.
In these situations, there is a breach of the duty of care if a property owner fails to clean up the mess, remove the obstruction, or post signs regarding the danger.
A victim in a slip and fall case may suffer serious injuries, including head trauma, back injuries, broken bones, lacerations, and bruises. If you were hurt, you may be able to recover compensation for:
● Medical bills;
● Your lost wages;
● Pain and suffering;
● Losses related to your personal relationships, including your spouse, children, and loved ones; and,
● Other losses depending on your circumstances.

Anthony was superb. I gave him a list of things I wanted out of my trial and he delivered.
I truly want to take the time to say what an amazing person Attorney VanNoy is.
