Premises Liability & Slips And Fall
Premises Liability Lawyers Helping Victims in Buffalo
When a person steps on to someone else's property, they do so under the impression that they will remain safe from harm and few ever actually expect to be injured. Every day in Buffalo, individuals slip, trip and fall because of spills, poorly maintained property, and other preventable causes. Almost all slip and fall accidents could have been prevented had basic precautions and safety measures been taken, and in these cases it becomes necessary to hold negligent property owners and managers responsible for their behavior. At Gross Shuman Brizdle & Gilfillan, P.C., our attorneys work hard to make sure that injured victims receive the compensation they deserve after being injured on other people's property. If you or your loved one has been injured in a slip, trip & fall accident, you must speak to a lawyer right away about your options.
If you have fallen down a dangerous flight of stairs, tripped on poorly maintained flooring, or slipped in a puddle in a store, the accident may have occurred due to someone else's negligence. In order for a person, business, or entity to be deemed responsible for a slip, trip & fall accident, one of the following must apply:
- The owner or an employee on the property must have caused the condition which resulted in an accident.
- The owner or employee must have known about the dangerous condition and done nothing about it.
- The owner or employee should have recognized the dangerous condition because a reasonable person would have discovered the condition and taken care of it before it became a problem.
