Slip and Fall Injury Attorneys
Each of us has “slipped, tripped, and fallen” at some time. Maybe it was because we weren’t paying good attention. Sometimes, it’s because a property owner was negligent under the law. So how do you know if you have a legal claim? Call the GOODIN ABERNATHY attorneys. We’ll spend time with you for a free consultation and help you figure out if there’s a legal claim to make.
Some slip and fall accidents may actually be the result of a property owners’ negligence. Poorly maintained sidewalks and parking lots; snow and ice covered walkways; or poor lighting are frequent examples we see in our office. These are not necessarily “easy” cases to make, but at Goodin Abernathy we are pleased to discuss your situation with you and provide our best case evaluation. There is no cost for this service.
There are several important considerations. First, in most instances you have only two years from the date of your fall to file a lawsuit. But there are other considerations as well. Many times it is not entirely clear who is responsible for the location of your fall. The property may be owned by one party, managed by another, with a third party responsible for services such as snow and ice removal. Sorting through this can be challenging, but we are pleased to help you through the process.
If you believe you may have a case for injuries suffered in a slip and fall accident resulting from the fault of another, please request a free consultation or call us to discuss.
