If you have fallen on someone else’s property and have been injured as a result, you may have the right to pursue a claim for compensation. Typically, slip and fall accidents are caused as a result of a property owner’s negligence. In most cases, the cause of a slip and fall accident is a slippery surface or an uneven surface. Common types of slip and fall accidents include:
Slipping on snow or ice that should have been removed;
Slipping on wet or slippery surfaces that should have been cleaned up;
Tripping on poorly maintained walkways, sidewalks or stairs
To determine whether you have a claim, a personal injury lawyer will evaluate the facts surrounding your accident and determine if there was a dangerous and/or defective condition on that property and whether the property owner’s failure to correct the problem constitutes negligence in your specific situation.
If retained to handle your case, we will actively seek the full and fair compensation you are entitled to receive under the facts and law. Our negotiation and litigation experience has helped people throughout Rhode Island who have been injured in a slip and fall accident.
For personal injury claims, we work on a contingency basis, which means that we charge no fee unless successful and then a fixed percentage of the settlement and/or verdict. This means no out-of-pocket costs for our clients. If you think that you or a loved one was injured due to someone else’s negligence, discuss the details with one of our personal injury lawyers. We will evaluate your claim and explain your options at no charge.
