Slip-And-Fall Accident Lawyers In New Richmond
Most people have suffered the misfortune of having a clumsy incident. Stepping off a curb without realizing it, falling down a couple of steps, or skidding on an icy sidewalk are experiences common to most people. We can accept those unavoidable accidents; what we should not accept is suffering injuries in accidents that could have and should have been prevented.
Property owners are responsible for taking basic safety precautions, fixing hazards and warning people of dangers on their property. If a property owner’s failure to live up to those responsibilities has resulted in an injury to you or a loved one, you can rely on the attorneys of Nicolet Law Office, to protect your legal rights and pursue the full compensation you deserve for your injury-related damages.
Premises Liability Explained
Premises liability claims are about holding property owners accountable for negligence that results in injuries. Examples of slip-and-fall accidents that are candidates for a premises liability claim include:
- A shopper slipping on a wet floor at the grocery store
- Someone slipping and falling on an icy sidewalk in front of a shop
- A visitor falling down as a result of a loose railing
At Nicolet Law Office, our local New Richmond personal injury attorneys examine the circumstances surrounding such accidents to determine if they could have and should have been prevented. Investigations include looking at evidence such as security camera footage to determine how long a hazard was there. For example, someone slipping on a fresh spill may not result in a legal claim, while someone slipping on a spill that has been there for an hour would because it is reasonable to expect someone to take action in that time frame.
A successful claim can provide financial compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages and other damages that occur due to a slip-and-fall accident. We prepare every case for the possibility of trial, allowing us to negotiate with the insurance companies from a position of strength. They know we will settle for nothing less than what our clients deserve.
