Fighting for the injured after a trip and fall due to someone else’s negligence
You have a right to be safe on another person’s property. A property owner has a duty to you to make sure the premises is safely accessible to those who are lawfully on their property. Unfortunately, some owners neglect this duty and, as a result, people get injured due to various hazards on the property. In fact, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that about 8,000,000 injuries and 24,000 fatalities happen each year due to slip and fall accidents.
