Slip and falls have many causes

Our clients include people injured because of:

  • Defective stairs and stair rails
  • Code violations of all kinds
  • Falling masonry and construction debris
  • Weak handrails
  • Poor lighting
  • Broken fencing
  • Failure to provide a security guard
  • Ice and snow
  • Inadequate construction site fencing
  • Weak or poorly constructed wooden walkways and boardwalks

Dangerous public premises can be anywhere

Injuries can occur in retail stores, fast food restaurants, office buildings, apartment complexes, and other commercial premises. The law requires owners of such properties to maintain safe conditions for customers, visitors, and passersby. When they do not, they may be liable for the injuries caused by their negligence.
