Slip and fall accidents occur for numerous reasons. You may slip on a patch of snow or ice, fall off a broken step, or trip over a pothole. Regardless of the cause of a slip and fall accident, when you or a loved one suffer a slip and fall accident on someone else’s property because the property or business owner failed to use reasonable care to maintain the premises, you may deserve to receive compensation for your injuries and other damages. This is because property owners have a legal duty to maintain their property in a safe condition and to warn visitors of the property of any dangerous or hazardous conditions that the owner has not yet had reasonable opportunity to remove.
Unfortunately, so many slip and fall accidents could be avoided if property or business owners took the due care that the law requires of them. Even sadder, many victims of slip and fall accidents don’t even realize that the property owner had a legal duty to remove the dangerous or hazardous condition that caused their slip and fall accident.

Not necessarily. Most slip and fall accident claims are resolved long before trial or even before the case sees the inside of a courtroom. Our slip and fall accident attorneys understand how critical it is that you obtain compensation for your injuries and losses as soon as possible. That is why we work diligently to try to obtain a resolution for your claim as efficiently as possible, whether that be through a negotiated settlement or at a mediation or arbitration. Of course, we never settle for anything less than full and fair compensation for your injuries and losses, and if necessary we are prepared to take your case to trial to get you the maximum compensation that you deserve.
The length of time that it will take to resolve a slip and fall accident claim will depend on multiple factors. If the property or business owner accepts responsibility for your accident and if your damages can be easily calculated, it may be possible to reach a settlement of your claim within a matter of a few months. However, if the property or business owner wishes to contest your claim, it may be necessary to pursue compensation via a lawsuit; it can take up to two to three years to reach trial in a lawsuit, depending on the complexity of your case and the availability of the court.
