Injured in an Unsafe Environment? We’re Here for You.

If you or a loved one is injured due to a property or business owner’s negligence, you may have the right to take legal action against that property or business owner. Negligence could be either creating an unsafe condition (such as a hole, a freshly mopped floor) or by allowing an unsafe condition to remain after those responsible for the property – the owners/managers/employees – have knowledge of the condition, such as a spill, or damaged or uneven flooring.

These places count on their managers and employees to prevent accidents by either posting a sign or other warning about the risk, or to otherwise remedy the condition immediately.
Unfortunately, many times there is a lapse between the hazardous condition occurring and someone finding it and posting a warning sign. On top of that, the floors are rock hard and unforgiving. When someone accidentally falls on such a hard surface. We usually see:
