Premises liability, slips, trips and falls

Every year thousands of people are injured in slip and fall or trip and fall incidents.  Property owners are generally required to maintain their property with reasonable care, though Indiana uses different standards depending on the particular facts of your case.  Since the particular facts of your case will determine which legal standard applies, you need an experienced attorney to fight for the compensation you deserve.

Falls are usually the result of conditions which could have been prevented.  In many cases, the property owner should have known about the condition and remedied it before someone could get hurt.  In other cases, the property owner knew about the condition but chose to do nothing to take care of it.  Still in other cases, the property owner actually created the condition.  If you or a loved one were injured as a result of a dangerous condition that the property owner should have taken care of, you should speak to an attorney to discuss your rights.

The condition which causes a fall is often a temporary condition which can be very quickly corrected or removed.  Once this evidence is gone it may be difficult to prove your case.  If you or a loved one were injured in a fall you need to call or email us right away so that we can take the steps necessary to preserve the evidence you need to pursue your case
