Cape Cod Slip-And-Fall Accident Lawyer
When we leave our homes each day, we cannot possibly imagine every potential danger we may encounter. Perhaps a store owner forgot to clean up a puddle of standing water or a landlord has failed to clear the sidewalk of ice. While it is important to be cautious and aware of your surroundings, it is not always possible to avoid accidents when the negligence of others creates a hidden or unexpected hazard.

from Property Liability Attorneys on Cape Cod
Victims of slip-and-fall accidents are often reluctant to seek legal representation. Whether injured at a business, a public park or the home of a friend or relative, they may feel embarrassed or believe the accident was their fault. Any accident that results in an injury is serious. Your injuries may be more extensive than you thought, and you may not heal as quickly as you thought. Even if you are not certain you have a case, consulting a lawyer may prove to be a wise decision.
We can investigate premises liability claims against supermarkets, restaurants, hotels, apartment buildings or other commercial property owners, as well as claims against a municipality or homeowner. Were you injured in a slip-and-fall involving:
- Spilled liquid, squished food or freshly mopped floors?
- Torn carpet, boxes or other tripping hazard?
- Broken steps, loose handrails or stairway defects?
- Faulty equipment, tools, machinery?
- Snow or ice not removed or treated in timely fashion?
- A parking lot accident or other unsafe property condition?
Investigating Your Slip-And-Fall Accident
We know that slip-and-falls and tripping accidents cause serious and lasting injuries, including broken bones, hip fractures, head trauma, knee injury or disabling back injury. We thoroughly document the physical, financial and personal harm, including damages for medical care, lost income, permanent disability, and pain and suffering.
When we take a slip-and-fall accident case, we conduct a prompt and thorough investigation to clearly establish liability. Did the property owner create the hazard or ignore complaints. Did the management fail to notice a dangerous condition or neglect maintenance and inspection? Once negligence has been established, we aggressively pursue compensation through negotiations or the courtroom.
