It’s all fun and games until somebody gets hurt.
Slips and falls are an unfortunate fact of life. We try to be as careful as possible but accidents still happen. However, some accidents can and should be prevented by property owners taking responsibility for the safety of their guests, neighbors and customers.
At The Foley Law Firm, we help the victims of slip-and-fall accidents get the financial compensation they need to recover and make things right. This includes maximizing compensation for damages such as medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, pain and suffering, lost earnings and more. From our location in Colorado Springs, we represent the injured in El Paso County and throughout the Pikes Peak region.
We go beneath the surface of your slip-and-fall accident to determine the root cause and identify the responsible party. On the surface, someone slipping on a wet floor in a grocery store appears to be an unfortunate accident. The truth is that the store is responsible for making sure that spills are cleaned up in a timely manner and that proper warning is given to customers in the form of a “wet floor” sign or any other visible notice. Someone tripping down a stairwell may appear to be the result of damaged or crooked steps. However, the property owner is responsible for maintaining their stairs and/or providing warning so people know to watch their step.
Our attorneys pursue premises liability claims involving all types of slip-and-fall accidents. This includes accidents involving wet floors, uneven floors or cracked pavement, loose railings, icy sidewalks, negligent security and more.
Slip-and-fall claims are not about going after a neighbor, friend or member of your community. In fact, claims are paid out via insurance policies such as homeowners insurance or business insurance. It is crucial to make sure you have an attorney capable of taking on the insurance companies and securing the funds you need to be made whole. Call us now at 719-757-1182 for a free consultation.
