Slip and Fall Accident & Injury Cases We Handle
At Friedman & Simon, L.L.P., our personal injury lawyers help victims recover compensation for physical, financial, and emotional damages sustained in a slip, trip, or fall accident.
Among the most common causes of slip and fall injuries are:
- Poorly lit areas
- Broken or missing handrails
- Unmarked curbs
- Water spills and leaks
- Cables and cords in walkways
- Uncleared ice and snow
- Unsecured floor mats and rugs

Property owners must maintain their property in a reasonable manner and not pose a risk of harm to others. If a hazard develops, the property owner must resolve it within a reasonable time. Until the problem is resolved, they must take reasonable steps to alert others to avoid the hazard.
If a property owner was or should have been aware of a hazard but failed to resolve it or provide a clear warning to others, they may be liable for damages related to a slip and fall injury.
The personal injury lawyers at Friedman & Simon, L.L.P. have helped accident victims recover damages since 1991. We can help you recover the compensation you deserve for your injury.
