An Overlooked Hazard Can Result in Serious Injury
If you were injured in an accident caused by a negligent property owner — such as tripping and falling in a public place — a witness or several witnesses can be your greatest asset in building a premises liability claim.
Time is of the essence in contacting an attorney to investigate a slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accident that resulted in serious injury. At The Walthew Law Firm, our experienced premises liability lawyers take a proactive approach and work efficiently to maximize your damages and secure the compensation to which you are entitled.
Timing is everything in handling a premises liability case. Immediately following your injury, information must be gathered. If you are able, try to locate the hazard that caused your injury and witnesses who may have seen you fall. If the property owner was aware of the hazard or should have been reasonably aware of any dangers, they should be held accountable for the injuries you suffered.
Property owners must be held accountable when they imperil the safety and lives of members of the public by failing to provide a safe environment, free of hazards. For help, contact our Seattle-based law firm at 206-812-2997 or toll free at 888-534-5255.
Take Action Now in Pursuing a Premises Liability Claim
The longer you wait to contact us after suffering a premises liability injury, the more challenges we typically face building a strong case. A central task for our experienced legal team always includes identifying the hazard and what was done or not done to fix it in a timely fashion. Speaking to witnesses while the event is still fresh in their minds is vital in telling your story. By taking a hands-on approach, we not only attend to every detail, but also allow you to focus on your medical recovery.
Protect Your Rights Following a Serious Injury
While an accident caused by a property owner's negligence sometimes may result in only minor injuries, many accident victims suffer greatly from injuries caused by faulty or poorly maintained stairs, unmarked broken and raised concrete, or other defects found at a home or business. Many of our clients are unable to work or engage in customary activities as a result of such injuries. If you are suffering a premises liability injury, take prompt action to protect yourself. There is no reason for you to suffer in silence or forgo your right to strong legal advocacy of your claim.
