Legal Help After a Slip-And-Fall Accident

Slip and fall accidents can result in serious injuries. A trip or slip and fall on a hard surface can cause broken bones, head injuries and painful sprains, strains and bruises.

The Centers for Disease Control reports that unintentional falls account for 20,823 deaths each year in the U.S.

The attorneys of Law Offices of Gallner & Pattermann, P.C., represent clients injured in slip and fall accidents and other property-related accidents, including those that involve:

  • Falls in retail stores or public places: Left unattended, a spill on the floor, a turned up rug or an uneven sidewalk can cause an unsuspecting person to fall and become injured.
  • Falls caused by negligent conditions on private property: Crumbling steps, icy steps or sidewalks, and rotted deck, porch or balcony railings can all cause serious injuries.
  • Injuries caused by merchandise falling from shelves
  • Inadequate lighting or security or in parking lots and buildings can increase the risk of assault.

If the property owner's negligence caused or contributed to an accident that left you seriously injured, it is important to speak to an attorney about your legal rights and options. Our attorneys will carefully listen as you explain what happened to you. After we hear how you have been injured, we will explain how we can help.
