From the moment you first step foot on another person’s or party’s property, you’re owed a certain level of protection from hazards. For example, when you enter a store, you shouldn’t have to worry about stepping in a slick puddle or walking up a broken or loose staircase. And yet that’s the case for many public and private properties in America.
When people get hurt because property owners and managers didn’t address hazards, those people can sue them for their medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. The expenses of a slip and fall accident can be significant, and some victims suffer injuries that can leave them disabled and in serious pain for the rest of their lives. And in rare cases, victims have even been paralyzed or killed after falling.
At Ponce Law, our Nashville premises liability attorneys do everything in our power to help slip and fall victims get maximum compensation. We know the costs associated with these injuries are often lifelong, as victims may be left unable to work and in need of physical rehabilitation and even mobility assistance in the form of walkers and wheelchairs, not to mention home and vehicle modifications.
Contact us today for a free consultation if you slipped and fell in a public or private space. We’ll collect evidence that proves the property owner or manager was negligent in maintaining the premises, and we’ll negotiate with the insurance company to get you maximum compensation.
