Slip & Trip and Fall
Slip/trip and fall accidents do not happen in slow motion – before you realize that you have fallen, you may already be on the ground, injured. You are likely aware of pain, but your first reaction is to try to stand up. You can’t believe you have fallen, and you are embarrassed. You try to figure out why you fell.
The lawyers at Gowland, Boriss Injury Lawyers have extensive experience in determining whether slips, trips, and falls are the result of someone else's negligence. Because the conditions that caused your fall can change rapidly, it is important to consult with a knowledgeable lawyer immediately. Witnesses need to be located and identified, photographs may need to be taken of the scene, and a determination must be made as to whether surveillance footage of the incident exists.
If your slip and fall accident occurred on property owned or occupied by a municipality, you have as little as seven days from the date of your accident to take specific legal steps to protect your rights. Failing to do so in these types of cases may result in your claim for damages being barred.
There are also strict time limits within which to bring lawsuits following such incidents.
If you have been injured in a slip and fall or trip and fall accident, Gowland, Boriss Injury Lawyers can provide you with straightforward and reliable advice. We will help you pursue your claim and protect your interests.
