If you believe the trip-and-fall accident was the result of a property owner’s negligence, you should consult an experienced attorney to determine whether you should file a premises liability claim. The lawyers at Cherry Injury Law, have experience and an understanding of the nuances in these cases. We know the steps to take to win your case and get you the compensation you deserve.
What Caused the Trip-and-Fall Accident?
When you come to us for representation in your trip-and-fall accident case, our attorneys will take the time to learn about what happened. It is important to keep in mind that there are more factors that come into play in determining whether a property owner was negligent than if there was some sort of obstacle in a walkway. Uneven paths and cracks are also hazards. Bad lighting can play a role. Poor signage can make a difference. We will review your case and determine the acts of negligence that contributed to the accident.
Questions to Ask Before Moving Forward
Simply because a trip-and-fall accident happened does not mean the property owner was responsible. Questions that need to be asked include:
- Should the property owner have known about the safety hazard?
- If the property owner did know about the safety hazard, did he or she ignore it?
- Was there a reasonable, well-marked path around the hazard?
If we determine the property owner was negligent, we will move forward to make sure he or she is held responsible.
