Slip or Trip and Fall
Fall cases make up a substantial amount of our practice at Black, Lyle & Habberfield, LLP. Falls from tripping or slipping happen all the time and, if they happen due to a defect on someone’s property, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. We recognize that falls often involve the more vulnerable members of our society – the elderly and the very young – and at Black, Lyle & Habberfield, LLP we ensure that these persons are protected.
It is important to know that if you are injured while on property owned or maintained by a state, municipality or government agency there are very short time frames in which you must file a notice of your claim. Sometimes these time frames can be as short as 90 days from the day of your fall. Very often, injured persons do not know if one of these entities is involved in their claim or responsible for the construction or maintenance of the property where they fell. Therefore, you should not hesitate in contacting our firm if you are injured as we are happy to review any case free of charge to determine what claims you may have.
