Slip and Fall Accidents
Helping the Injured Recover Financial Compensation
Slip and fall accidents happen a lot. And many times, such accidents could have been prevented. Property owners and businesses are responsible for keeping their premises safe from hazards that can cause people to slip and fall. When their negligence leads to someone getting hurt, the slip and fall attorneys at Ausman Law Firm, P.C., L.L.O. hold them accountable and fight to get compensation for the injured.
As with other types of accidents, slip and falls can leave people with serious injuries. These injuries can range from sprains and strains to broken bones to head injuries. These injuries may leave people unable to take part in their normal activities, including work. Suddenly, injury victims may be left with mounting medical expenses while losing income.
A slip and fall accident can occur in many different ways. It can be caused by:
- A wet floor
- An icy parking lot
- A poorly lit stairwell
- Sidewalk construction that is poorly marked
Property and business owners who don't take action to prevent slip and fall accidents can be found negligent and responsible for paying damages.
Fighting For The Injured

They also know how to build a strong case that proves negligence and puts pressure on insurance companies to settle.
