Slip/Trip and Fall Accidents
Slip/trip and fall accidents are considered by many as the hardest cases for plaintiffs to prevail. That is because there are so many ways these cases can be defended with fault often difficult to establish. These kinds of injuries happen when someone slips or trips and subsequently falls on someone else’s property due to a dangerous or hazardous condition. Conditions leading to these kinds of injuries can include:
- Foreign substances
- Uneven flooring or sidewalks
- Poor lighting
- Violation of an applicable building code
- Some other hazard
Often times, the maintenance or cleaning procedures of a company or business are flawed — sometimes non-existent — leading to these dangerous conditions. Our attorneys know how to investigate and expose these flaws, resulting in favorable outcomes for our clients.
Many personal injury firms do not handle these types of cases because of their difficulty. However, the attorneys at Metnick, Levy & Dyson have had great success pursuing slip or trip and fall cases on behalf of clients for many years. The firm represents many elderly clients who have sustained serious fractures and undergone surgeries in these types of cases. We know the legal intricacies to establish liability on the part of a negligent property owner and have had great success advocating for clients in these types of cases, obtaining substantial jury verdicts for victims of slip/trip and falls when the preceding offers were far less.
