Slip and Fall Accidents are not Your Fault
When a person is hurt in a slip and fall accident at a store or elsewhere, they often wonder who is to blame. Sometimes, they feel that it was there responsibility to watch where they were walking. Sometimes, they decide not to seek compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages and other costs associated with the accident. This is a mistake.
Owners of commercial properties are responsible for the safety of visitors. When you go to a store, you should not be expected to watch where you're walking. The store is designed to keep your eyes on the merchandise. If you fall down, it's often because of the owner's negligence. At Abes Baumann in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, we hold owners accountable for their negligent actions.
What Caused the Slip and Fall?
More often than not, a slip and fall is the result of some sort of liquid that has been spilled at a grocery store, a retail store or a similar business. Owners are responsible for quickly addressing these types of spills to prevent accidents.
In addition to slip and falls, our attorneys can represent victims of trip and falls. These accidents involve unsafe sidewalks and foreign objects, such as boxes, in walkways. Owners are also responsible for keeping these hazards out of the way of visitors to their property.
Our lawyers start these cases by investigating the situation. Since 1981, we have helped many accident victims. You can be confident in our ability to build a strong case designed to get you full compensation.
