Slip and Fall

Premises liability deals with the legal liability for injuries that occur on dangerous property, very often involving slip-and-fall accidents. Injuries caused by slips and falls can have long-lasting effects.

If the slip and fall injuries are the result of a negligent individual, municipality or business, an injury victim can make a claim for compensation for their injuries and ongoing treatments.

At Strype Injury Law, our experienced personal injury trial lawyers act quickly to protect the rights of slip and fall accident victims and maximize the rehabilitation and compensation that is available to them. Because there is often no obvious source of insurance compensation in these cases, obtaining benefits can be difficult.

IMPORTANT DEADLINES

There are a number of varying deadlines for bringing legal action in slip-and-fall accident cases and missing a deadline can result in a person losing the right to pursue a claim.

In cases involving private property, injury victims have two years to bring a claim. In cases involving public property, the time frame can be much shorter. In some municipalities, it is as short as seven days after the accident.

Timing Is Important in Slip-and-Fall Cases

With the difficulty of obtaining benefits in these cases it is important to bring a personal injury law suit forward as quickly as possible after the injury occurs. The sooner the process begins, the sooner treatment can be sustained.
