To succeed in a slip and fall premises liability claim requires extensive knowledge of premises liability law as well as a firm grasp on the facts of the incident. Not all slip and fall claims are paid, as the insurance companies attempt to show that you were at fault and that you did not take proper precautions to avoid the hazard. In all but the most obvious cases, this is a defense that the property owner could attempt to use. We have extensive trial and settlement experience and this tactic is expected, and therefore no threat to a successful conclusion of your case.
