Local Business Held Liable for Slip and Fall Accident

"Businesses that welcome the public onto their premises have a legal duty to keep them "reasonably" safe."

Whether it is a well-known big box chain such as Walmart or Home Depot, an independently owned business, or a hole in the wall restaurant in your hometown, any business that invites the public onto its grounds is obligated to prevent a dangerous condition from existing on its premises for an unreasonable period of time. A person who suffers injuries as a result of the condition is entitled to compensation.

In a recent case, Attorney Robert Thompson successfully obtained a substantial settlement on behalf of his injured client when she suffered a displaced bimalleolar ankle fracture. A business had allowed a puddle of water to accumulate in an aisle for an unreasonable period of time which resulted in a slip and fall accident. If you have a question as to whether you have a claim resulting from a fall at a business contact Logan-Thompson, P.C. for comprehensive legal advice and information.
