Helping The Survivors Of Slip-And-Fall Accidents For Over 35 Years
Slipping and falling on someone else’s property can happen to anyone. Unfortunately, these accidents often cause serious injuries that can alter your life. You have the right to seek compensation if a negligent property owner contributed to your slip and fall.
For more than 35 years, we at McHenry Haszard Law have represented the people of Nebraska in a range of personal injury law matters. We understand slip-and-fall claims inside and out, having handled thousands of them. From beginning to finish, we care deeply about advocating for your best interests and aiding your physical and emotional recovery.
Understanding The Causes Of Slip And Falls
Homeowners, stores, public facilities and employers all have an obligation to keep their premises safe for visitors. If they fail to prevent or remedy a safety hazard that they knew about or should have known about, victims have the right to seek compensation.
Some of the most common reasons for slip-and-fall injuries include:
- Poorly maintained walkways
- Debris on the ground
- Water on the ground
- Ice on the ground
- Inadequate lighting
- Hazardous staircases
The damages that can result from the above list include hospital bills, loss of income, and pain and suffering. It is not always easy to prove liability in court, so you should seek legal help as soon as possible to gather and preserve evidence.
Fierce Litigators On Your Side
Litigation is not always necessary in injury claims. Usually, we use our excellent negotiation skills to get a favorable settlement without ever setting a foot in a courtroom. When necessary, though, we will litigate your case to the fullest extent of the law. Our firm has earned a reputation as a tenacious litigation team that is serious about holding negligent parties and their insurers accountable for your damages.
