At Zayouna Law Firm, we’re no strangers to slippery sidewalks, flooring, and uneven or poorly maintained surfaces. But when a slip and fall is the fault of a property owner, we are never quick to dismiss it as just another everyday occurrence.
Our lawyers are here to help you file a slip and fall claim and seek compensation for your injuries. We recognize the devastating consequences of these accidents, especially in severe, life-altering falls that lead to many complications and lifelong effects, from fractures to paralysis. You should not have to suffer for someone else’s negligence.
Utilizing a slip and fall accident lawyer allows you to seek accountability and compensation from an at-fault party. Property owners who fail to keep up with property maintenance, or others who deliberately cause harm may be held liable for your or a loved one’s injuries, ensuing pain and suffering, and even loss of income.
A slip and fall accident can result in life-altering consequences at any age, with even more severe impacts depending on your current productivity, potential, and existing health conditions.
When a young person suffers a severe slip and fall, the accident can result in drastic, lifelong effects, such as paralysis. This impacts their future productivity, severely limiting their potential to live a full life.
Older victims can also suffer severe complications from slip and falls. Fractures, concussions, brain and spinal cord injuries, and other effects can be further complicated by old age, resulting in prolonged recovery, if not loss of life.
When filing a slip and fall claim, our lawyers will retain medical, vocational, and future care experts to illustrate your pain and suffering, and quantify your losses.
Who is responsible for your slip and fall? A viable claim seeks compensation from the party responsible for your accident and resulting injuries, trauma, and financial impacts.
While no one else but you is responsible for tripping over your own feet or untied shoelaces, contractors, property managers, and even municipal governments owe you a duty of care in ensuring you have a safe space to walk. Your slip and fall claim will prove that they were remiss in upholding their duty of care by failing to remove hazards, causing injury.
From children to adults and elderly folks, almost everyone has suffered a slip or trip and fall accident at least once. Icy sidewalks, poorly maintained surfaces, loose carpeting, and more can all cause a slip and fall. But while many are back on their feet quickly with just a few bruises, others suffer devastating, lifelong injuries that lead to chronic pain or even permanent disability.
Did you or a loved one slip and fall due to another person’s negligence? A slip and fall claim allows you to hold the at-fault party liable. You can receive compensation for your injuries and the lifelong emotional and financial burdens you and your loved ones bear:
At Zayouna Law Firm, we believe in investigating slip and fall accidents. For us, these are never just everyday occurrences. Our lawyers can help you seek answers and compensation for the life-altering effects of your accident, and ensure that the at-fault party is held liable.
Zayouna Law Firm brings vast legal expertise in personal injury law to build a strong claim for compensation, and ensure your full recovery in the face of a life-altering slip and fall.
Generally, you only have 7 days to notify the property owner where you were injured, and 2 years to commence a lawsuit. Given these limited timeframes, it is in your best interest to speak with a personal injury lawyer right away. They can help you provide written notice of your intent to sue and file your claim within the statute of limitations.
Typically, slip and fall claims distinguish between the owner and occupant of a property to determine who is responsible for maintaining the site where you were injured. Whoever failed to remove potential hazards at the site of your injury can be held liable for your slip and fall.
For example, if you were injured inside an apartment unit as a direct result of its upkeep, then you can file a claim against the tenant. However, if you were injured in a common area of the building or as a direct result of the property manager’s failure to maintain the building, they are liable.
A slip and fall claim allows you to recover compensation for your recovery, as well as the lifelong impact of the accident.
These include healthcare, attendant care, mobility and accessibility devices, and lost income. A personal injury lawyer can help you determine the extent of these losses and seek the full compensation you are entitled to.

Collectively, our highly skilled personal injury lawyers bring decades of experience to the work of helping thousands of injured clients return their lives to their pre-accident state.Read More
