Slip & Falls
Slip and fall accidents are more common than they might seem and can occur because of unsafe property conditions and/or when a property owner either fails to repair something that poses a potential harm or provide cautionary notice. Dangerous conditions that commonly cause slip and fall accidents include wet floors and spills, damaged steps or stairs, inadequate or broken handrails, snowy or icy walkways, broken or uneven sidewalks, inadequate lighting, potholes, and torn or faulty carpeting.
In general, property owners have a duty to either remedy or warn of any dangerous conditions that they know or should know about. Failure to fix or alert someone of a dangerous condition is likely a breach of their legal duty and is grounds for damages. The legal team at the Law Offices of Daniel J.

Regardless of the nature of the injuries, the goal is to maximize our client’s compensation through mediations, arbitrations, pre-trial resolutions or trial verdicts.
