Slip and Fall Law Firms and What You Need to Know
Are you in need of a slip and fall attorney? Slip and Falls is a general term which applies to various circumstances – from someone falling in a grocery store to someone tumbling down the stairs of their apartment complex. Most people do not realize it, but the law involving “slip and falls” is one of the most difficult for an injured party.
Unfortunately, the law is heavily slanted in favor of the company, landlord or other owner of the establishment where the injury occurred. In a nutshell, when someone is injured, they have the duty of proving the employer “knew or should have known” about the condition of the premises. For this reason, it is important to have a competent law firm to help you prove your case.

We Help Prove You Have a Case
For example, if someone falls on a wet floor in a grocery store, they must prove the grocery store knew or should have known about the wet floor. If this cannot be proven, the courts will likely rule in favor of the grocery store. There can also be “notice” requirement involved in these cases, meaning that the company must have had “notice” of a defective condition before they can be held liable. Basically, this means if you are injured but the company never had notice of the problem, then you may not be able to recover compensation – even if the company caused the injury.
Recovering the Compensation You are Entitled To
Medical expenses and income lost while not at work, as well as pain and suffering induced by the injury are the main expenses taken into consideration when we pursue a settlement or go to court.
We Work Hard for You
The above examples will not apply to all situations, but they are given to show how difficult the law is regarding “slip and falls.” This is why it is important to have a competent slip and fall lawyer working hard for you.

Federal law states that all property owners have certain obligations when it comes to keeping their area free from accident prone environments. This obligation includes that they keep their land or properties safe for visitors and free of any potential dangers.

The premises liability attorneys at Law Offices of Matthew C. Hines have many years of experience holding negligent property owners accountable for injuries that resulted on their land.
