Don't Let Your Premise Case "Slip" By

If you’ve been injured on the premises of a business, you should understand some things that may let you know whether or not a slip and fall lawsuit may be an option for you.

What a Business Has to Do

A business has to provide reasonable safety precautions for their patrons. This includes making sure that there aren’t trip hazards in areas—such as extension cords or computer network cords—where patrons can be expected to walk. In an office, for example, there should not be cords running across the floor and, if there are, they should be underneath something that keeps them from presenting a trip hazard.

Such conditions are some of the most common reasons that people slip and sustain injuries and, when this happens, you may want to contact a personal injury attorney.
A business also has to make sure that their structures are up to building codes. Rickety staircases, slippery ramps, uneven floors and other hazards are not acceptable and may constitute negligence on the part of the business owner. If you’ve been injured due to such conditions, you’ll definitely want to speak with a personal injury lawyer.

When to Contact a Lawyer

It’s always best to contact a lawyer sooner rather than later. There are likely limitations on how long after your injury you have to press a lawsuit and you don’t want that time to expire before you decide to take action.
Meeting with an attorney is oftentimes free and doesn’t require that you hire them to take your case. In fact the attorney will be trying to determine whether or not they want to take your case at this meeting, as well. If they feel that they cannot help you, they’ll generally want to leave your case to another attorney and will advise you that they don’t’ think your case will win.
If they do want to take your case, be sure you’re working with a personal injury law firm that works on contingency. This means that you’re not risking your money on the claim. If they don’t win, you don’t pay. If you do win, the fees will come out of your award or settlement. This is the safest way to pursue a slip and fall claim of any type.
