Slip & Fall Accidents
Have you been injured in a slip and fall accident? Let us fight for you.
Have you slipped and fallen on someone else’s property? Besides being embarrassing, a fall can cause serious physical injuries such as strains, sprains, broken bones, internal injuries, head injuries, and spinal cord injuries. In some cases, you may be left with permanent pain or limitations to your mobility. In order to secure the compensation you need to make you whole after an accident, you will need to enlist the aid of an experienced slip and fall accident lawyer like Alejo Lugo.
Do You Have a Claim?
While not every slip and fall accident is actionable, many are. In order to file a personal injury claim against the property owner, you will need to prove that your accident was caused by their negligence. A property owner can be considered negligent when they either:
- Create a dangerous condition on the property
- Know of a dangerous condition but fail to correct it
- Fail to discover a dangerous condition that has existed on the property for some time and that someone taking reasonable care of their property would have discovered
A dangerous condition is a hazard that presents a foreseeable and unreasonable risk of injury to a person on the property, and is not so open and obvious that a person who was being reasonably careful would be able to avoid it. Examples of dangerous conditions that cause slip and fall accidents include:
- Wet floors
- Torn or lumpy carpeting
- Loose rugs
- Changes in flooring
- Inadequate lighting
If you have suffered a slip and fall accident due to any of the above hazards, the best way to determine if you are entitled to compensation is to contact The Law Offices of Alejo Lugo & Associates immediately. We can come visit you in the hospital or in your home to help you understand your legal rights and options.
