Did you suffer from a slip-and-fall? Know your rights

| Feb 26, 2015 | Premises Liability |

A slip-and-fall accident can cause serious or even permanent injuries. People who slip and fall often require medical attention and may even need long-term rehabilitation.

Although accidents happen, sometimes they could have been prevented. It is important to understand that victims of slip-and-fall accidents may be entitled to compensation for their injuries. However, many people do not know what to do when they have suffered a slip-and-fall. The process of filing a lawsuit can be both intimidating and frustrating.

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured as a result of a slip-and-fall, we can help. At Colley Shroyer & Abraham, our attorneys have built a reputation of standing up for the rights of injured people throughout Ohio.

One way that we assist our clients is by helping them understand their rights. In Ohio, certain people, such as property owners and managers, have a responsibility to their guests and customers. This means that they have a responsibility to properly maintain their property and to ensure that it is safe and secure. For example, employees at a grocery store generally have a duty to clean up spills and to block off the area where the spill occurred. If a guest or customer is injured as a result of a poorly maintained premise, he or she may be able to file a premises liability case.

Our attorneys are experienced in a variety of premises liability cases, including slip-and-fall injury cases that have occurred in retail stores, apartment complexes, and restaurants. Using this experience, we can offer a realistic assessment of what is likely to happen in your case.

We also understand that slip-and-falls are stressful experiences. As a result, we will do everything we can to ensure that you feel comfortable with the progress of your case. We will keep you informed about each step of your case, from start to finish.
