A slip and fall accident, when it occurs, is expensive, disruptive, painful, even tragic. It is often the result of negligent maintenance or even complete disregard for the safety of others.
If you experience injuries on the property of another person or organization due to unsafe or dangerous conditions, the property owner may be held liable for your injury, and you may be entitled to compensatory damages for your pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages and the treatment of your injuries.
Our team of personal injury attorneys at Hauptman, O’Brien, Wolf & Lathrop, P.C. can help you handle the wide variety of challenging medical, emotional and legal questions surrounding slip and fall cases. We handle all types of premises liability injuries, including those arising out of:
