Dedicated Columbus Slip and Fall Lawyers Fight for You
Protecting your rights when you’re injured
Slip and fall accidents can cause minor bumps and scrapes, traumatic brain injuries and even death. If your slip and fall accident was due to the negligence of a property owner or manager, that person may be liable to you for monetary damages under a premises liability theory. People and businesses alike must take precautions to ensure that their premises are reasonably safe. We protect your rights and seek the compensation you need to get back on your feet.

Property owners have a duty to keep their premises safe, but it is important to note that simply falling on someone’s property does not make him or her legally liable for your injuries. You are expected to take reasonable care to watch where you are going and avoid dangerous conditions. A grocery store is not responsible if you trip over a large display easily visible. However, it may be liable if you slipped on a piece of lettuce that was on the floor long enough that a prudent owner would be aware of it.
To prove the right to recover money damages in a slip and fall case, a plaintiff has to present evidence to prove the following:
- The owner or renter had constructive knowledge of the substance or item that caused the fall.
- The victim did not know about the substance or item despite exercising due care.
We thoroughly understand the law in this practice area and give you an honest evaluation of your case. The property owner is likely to deny any liability, but we have the experience to properly and thoroughly investigate your slip and fall case. If you suffered injuries in a slip and fall accident because of the negligence of a property owner, we work to get you compensation quickly for medical bills and lost wages, and we proceed to trial if necessary. A Columbus injury lawyer can give you the individualized attention you deserve and keep you informed every step of the way.
