Slip, Trip and Fall accidents occur despite our best efforts to be careful and to ensure our own safety. A Slip, Trip and Fall accident can result in significant pain and suffering, medical expenses and loss of income. The law requires that every property owner keep their premises free from hazardous conditions and safe for visitors, as well as those passing on the sidewalk, including the prompt removal of snow and ice. Businesses are responsible for maintaining their public areas safe for patrons and should have policies and procedures for doing so. When deviations from such policies and procedures occur, or when carelessness allows a dangerous condition to form and exist, innocent people are placed at risk for serious and significant injuries.
Property owners often maintain homeowners insurance that is available to compensate victims who have suffered injuries due to the property owner's failure to maintain his or her property in a safe manner. Businesses also carry insurance for when patrons are hurt due to the business' or employee's negligence. Cities and municipalities may also be held liable for failing to enforce ordinances which require a home or business owner to keep their property safe.
Slip, Trip and Fall cases are intricate and detailed. The law requires that an injured victim prove several factors, requiring early and effective investigation including preservation of evidence, photographs, video and witness statements. Mr. Weitz is experienced in premises liability cases and has succesfully represented numerous clients injured in supermarkets, casinos, bars and nightclubs, retail stores, parking lots, homes and other properties due to slippery substances, uneven or broken flooring and pavement, design defects or other negligent conditions. Mr. Weitz has also won money for people who have slipped on sidewalks, both commercial and residential, due to snow and ice, or tripped due to uneven pavement or tree roots.
