There are many conditions in which negligence causes injuries due to a slip and fall. Even if you were partially at fault for the accident, other parties can be held accountable for the role they played in your injury. The slip and fall attorneys at The Law Offices of Gregory J. Schadone, Ltd. can help you pursue fair compensation if you have sustained injuries due to the certain conditions, including but not limited to:
- Poor snow and ice removal
- Inadequate lighting, both indoors and outdoors
- Damaged sidewalks or walkways
- Cluttered walkways
- Loose floorboards
- Torn carpeting
- Wet floors
- Cords running across walkways
- No handrail in stairways, platforms, or other areas
These types of conditions are likely to cause an accident if proper repairs have not been made, or if warnings have not been properly displayed. If you have been injured by slipping, tripping or falling on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to a significant amount of compensation. However, you will need to prove that your injuries were the direct result of a hazardous condition that the owner created, knew about, or should have known about.
Proving owner liability for your injuries is often challenging, especially if you attempt to do so on your own. The Rhode Island personal injury lawyers and Massachusetts personal injury lawyers at The Law Offices of Gregory J. Schadone Ltd. are here to help ensure your claim is handled properly and aggressively. Our personal injury attorneys are often able to negotiate with insurance companies for maximum compensation. In other cases, when the insurer refuses to pay a fair settlement amount, we will take them to court to force them to pay what is owed. Our experienced Rhode Island personal injury attorneys and Massachusetts personal injury attorneys will listen to you carefully, seek to understand the details of your situation, and fearlessly advocate for you after your slip and fall. There is no fee unless successful and the no charge for a consultation.
