When a person enters the property of another, they generally do not think about all the potential dangers that could be present. This is especially true when it is a public space and a person has the right to enter the property as a visitor or patron. Unfortunately, when property owners fail to maintain a property or rid it of known dangers, a visitor could suffer harm in a slip-and-fall accident.
At The Johnson Law Firm, LLC, our attorneys understand that a negligent property owner may be to blame for a slip or fall. Because property owners are responsible for maintaining their property and keeping their premises safe, if a visitor, customer or patron is harmed because of a hazard the property owner failed to promptly fix, this could make them responsible for the harms suffered.
Our law firm understands how shocking and overwhelming a sudden accident like a slip-and-fall can be. A victim could suffer trauma to their head, neck or back and injuries to their limbs and internal organs; thus, the losses and damages can be extensive. Our attorneys take the time to assess the details of the matter, helping to prove the cause, fault and damages suffered.
