If a proprietor of a store or another kind of business has, through their neglect, created a condition that caused you to slip and fall, you may have a right to recovery. Generally, to recover money for your slip and fall injuries, our law firm will need to prove that the defendant was both negligent and caused your fall.
The personal injury lawyers at Klaproth Lawwill accomplish this proving that the defendant had knowledge of the unsafe condition, and that the dangerous condition existed prior to your fall. In some cases, your claim might be based upon a statute. In other words, our attorneys can invoke a right in statute, created by your local government to protect you, in order to help you recover for your slip and fall.
