Thousands of injuries – sometimes serious – happen every year due to property owners’ negligence. Having successfully handled hundreds of personal injury claims, Ripper Law Firm has the knowledge, skill and resources to help compensate clients who have been seriously injured due to falls at retail stores, malls, homes, apartments, hotels, clubs, restaurants, office buildings, homes, sporting events and other public venues.
If you have suffered injuries as the result of a fall, some things you can do to help strengthen your case include:
Owners are responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of the property, both indoors and outdoors.
Ripper Law Firm handles many types of cases involving falls indoors; however, most involve one of the three following areas:
These include an owner failing to adequately post signs for wet spots, failing to place adequate barriers to closed areas, excessively or unevenly waxing a floor, or failing to repair torn, uneven, or bulging carpet sections.
These include an owner failing to maintain the upkeep of stairs, despite normal wear and tear. Edges may become rounded, the non-stick surface of the stairs (which is required in most states) can wear down, or a handrail can brake (or be missing altogether).
The law holds these to high standards since they involve the transportation of passengers. If property owners fail to fulfill these high standards, they are at risk if a person suffers injury.
Most of these involve one of the three following areas:
Failing to adequately light an area can cause injuries in parking lots or on sidewalks.
Dangerous conditions may result in the owner being responsible.
Owners are responsible for the safety of their lots, which includes any protrusion in the parking lot surface that leads to an injury.
