Compensation For Slip-And-Fall Accident Victims
Many business owners and their insurance companies do not take slip-and-fall accidents seriously. A common response that injured people hear is, “You should watch where you’re going.” However, unsafe conditions are not always visible, and the injuries suffered in falls can affect you for months or years.
At the law firm of Satterley & Kelley PLLC, in Louisville, we represent people injured as the result of property owner negligence. Our lawyers will work hard to make sure you obtain appropriate compensation for injuries related to a slip and fall or trip and fall.
A track record of success. Our experience and compassion help our attorneys recover the best possible outcomes for our clients. Our track record of success proves that.
Holding Negligent Property Owners Responsible
Our lawyers have the experience to take property owners and their insurance companies to court and win. Our ability to try cases means that property owners are often willing to resolve these cases out of court.
The following are examples of unsafe conditions that can lead to slip- or trip-and-fall injuries:
- Wet floors
- Ice on sidewalks
- Uneven or broken sidewalks or floors
- Items left on a floor
- Poor lighting
- Loose carpeting
- Missing handrails
- Uneven steps
A common defense in slip-and-fall accident cases is that the unsafe condition was “open and obvious.” However, Kentucky judges are increasingly leaving it to juries to decide if an unsafe condition was open or obvious. Our lawyers are experienced in proving property owner negligence at trial.
Did you get a fair settlement offer? Do you need a second opinion on your settlement offer? The lawyers at Satterley & Kelley PLLC have extensive experience handling personal injury claims. We know what to look for and how to distinguish a good settlement offer from a bad one.
