Slip & Fall Lawyer
If you've been injured in a slip & fall accident
know your rights and improve your chances of seeking compensation by contacting Sheeley Law.
Slip and fall cases can be very hard to win without the involvement of a personal injury attorney. The injured party has a difficult task to prove that the owner of the property where the injury occurred is negligent and owes compensation for the slip-and-fall. A property management company for the owner may also be involved. Additionally, the property owner could clean up or fix the cause of the fall immediately after the accident — so it is imperative that you have a personal injury lawyer protect your rights and the evidence as soon as possible. Take photographs of the accident scene as soon as possible after the slip and fall.
To successfully recover damages in a slip-and-fall case the victim must prove that the injury was:
The result of a dangerous condition on the property
Your injuries are the result of the dangerous or hazardous condition, or an aggravation or exasperation prior condition
Personal injury lawyer Ann Sheeley will provide free-of-charge, no-obligation consultation, and will meet with you in any of the Sheeley Law offices, your home or hospital, as needed.
If the slip and fall accident happened in a work environment then the case must be processed through the Rhode Island Workers’ Compensation or Massachusetts Workers’ Compensation systems.
