Slip & Fall
Property owners have a responsibility to keep their land reasonably safe for others to use. Exposing visitors to hazards such as wet floors, large potholes, broken stairs or other obstacles can result in serious injuries. If you suffered an injury in a slip-and-fall accident, an experienced personal injury lawyer can help you obtain compensation for your lost wages, medical bills and other damages.
At Wesley, McGrail & Wesley, our Fort Walton Beach slip-and-fall accident attorneys have more than 70 years of combined experience holding property owners accountable for negligently maintaining their property. This can include failing to warn others of the dangers the owner knew about (or should have known about).
Common Slip-And-Fall Hazards
Slip-and-fall accidents can occur on either public or private land. These injuries result from a property owner negligently maintaining his or her property or simply not picking up items that fall to the ground. Other common causes include:
- Spills or slippery substances left unattended
- Products left in aisles and not restocked
- Uneven flooring, including cracks, missing tiles and unkempt carpet
- Poorly maintained hand railings and stairways
Regardless of the cause of your fall, our lawyers are committed to providing you with the exceptional, personalized client service you expect from your attorney. We put an emphasis on keeping our clients informed throughout their case. This allows us to work as a team and make well-informed, beneficial decisions that could lead to a significant settlement or court-awarded judgment.
