Knowledgeable Slip and Fall Attorney in Detroit
Did you slip in the grocery store or trip over your neighbor's broken step? A slip and fall could cause broken bones, head injuries, back injuries or other serious problems that prevent you from returning to work. Unfortunately, while you heal, your medical bills, mortgage payments and utility bills are still piling up. If you've injured yourself on someone else's property, you may be eligible for compensation. The Law Offices of Andreopoulos & Hill PLLC can help. Our experienced slip and fall attorney in Detroit will assess your situation. If we determine that you have a case, we try to help you prove it by showing that the owner of the property was negligent or committed a wrongful act and by proving that you were legally allowed to be on the property. We understand that recovering from an injury is physically and emotionally trying for many people, which is why our lawyer always acts professionally and compassionately.
Common Causes of Accidents
Trip and fall accidents can occur for many reasons, but the most common causes are wet or uneven surfaces. In fact, 55 percent of them are due to dangerous situations such as:
- Loose floorboards
- Potholes in parking lots
- Torn carpeting
- Clutter on floors
- Uneven or broken sidewalks
- Loose or broken staircases
- Recently waxed floors
In other cases, the weather is the culprit, but the accident still could have been avoided if the property owner had plowed snow and salted parking lots, driveways and sidewalks. Other common causes include improper training of employees and nursing home neglect. Regardless of the cause, your attorney can help you file paperwork, meet deadlines and go before a judge for your case.
