Bedford Park Slip and Fall Lawyers
Spilled drinks or cleaning liquids in a restaurant. Apartment complexes with broken handrails. Accumulated ice left for weeks on a sidewalk after a big storm. All of these hazards present the risk of serious injury. The property owner or manager who failed to address these hazards could face civil liability. Our team of Bedford Park slip and fall lawyers could assist you in your pursuit of both compensation and justice.
If you have suffered a slip and fall injury on another person’s property, you might be entitled to financial recovery. Holding them responsible can be challenging, and success in your claim is never guaranteed. However, working with the dedicated slip and fall lawyers from Douglas & London could improve your odds significantly.
Common factors in slip and fall accidents
Falls can occur anywhere– from open fields to busy grocery stores. A property owner must ensure the premises are safe for guests or the public. The following are common safety issues:
- Bunched or loose carpet
- Spilled food or drink
- Uneven pavement
- Dim lighting
- Loose steps
- Damaged banisters
- Construction debris
- Loose extension cords
However, not every hazard that causes a fall will result in financial compensation. Successful claims will prove that the property owner had time to address the hazard but did not. Your slip and fall attorney could convince a jury of the above. If successful, this could result in significant compensation for your injuries.
The value of legal counsel with no up-front fees
Our firm understands the financial strain that follows a slip and fall accident. If you are dealing with a serious injury, you could be looking at overwhelming medical bills. When your injury is so severe you are unable to work, the financial strain is compounded. These challenges are why we never charge up-front attorney fees.
In fact, you will never owe us a cent unless we recover compensation on your behalf. If we are successful, we take a percentage of your recovery as our fee. If we are unable to recover damages in your case, you will never owe us anything.
