We understand how slip and fall cases work in Indiana
In order to claim damages for a slip and fall accident, you need to prove negligence on the part of the property owner or manager who caused you to slip and fall. Some dangerous conditions that often lead to slip and falls or trip and fall incidents include:
- Unmarked wet floors
- Cluttered walkways
- Dim or broken lights
- Uneven or loose flooring
- Steep, improperly maintained or otherwise unsafe stairs and steps
Property owners owe a duty of care to people who visit their property. That duty of care depends in part on your legal status at the time of the fall, under premises liability law. The property owner owes the highest duty of care to invitees - that is, people who are visiting for a business purpose, such as customers in a retail store. However, licensees - social visitors - and even trespassers also have legal rights.
A law firm you can trust to stand up for you
Navigating premises liability claims can be difficult. Indiana juries will often only be convinced if they see hard evidence. We keep that in mind with every personal injury case we handle at our law firm. Our attorneys will get to the bottom of what happened and build a strong case showing that the property owner was responsible for your injuries. We'll also listen to your story and fight for compensation for all your financial losses, including lost wages, medical expenses, lost future earnings, pain and suffering and more.
Often, we're able to negotiate a fair settlement with the property owner's insurance company. But if they won't cooperate, we're prepared to go before a judge and jury and fight for your rights at trial.
