Getting You Back On Track

Helping You Seek The Compensation You Deserve For Your Slip-And-Fall Injuries

Slip-and-fall accidents happen frequently even though property owners and managers have a duty to keep their premises safe. If you slipped going in or out of a restaurant, casino or retail shop, you may have a right to file a lawsuit for your injuries such as the following:

  • A head injury
  • A broken bone
  • A back, neck or shoulder injury

Your expenses and related losses may be significant, possibly requiring hospitalization, surgery and long-term physical therapy. To recover the compensation you deserve, you will need to prove that someone else was responsible or an insurer is liable. Liability for a slip-and-fall accident can be hard to prove on your own without an experienced personal injury lawyer.

At Carey & Stewart, PLLC, we commit our resources and focus our attention on achieving the results you are looking for: compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Call our office at Weirton for a free consultation to discuss the details of your slip-and-fall injury at 888-710-4496​. You may also reach out to us online.

Did A Property Owner Fail To Properly Warn Visitors About Hazards?

Without proper signs or warnings about unsafe conditions, slip-and-fall accidents can be considered premises liability cases. Such cases include slip-and-falls due to:

  • Faulty railings
  • Broken staircases
  • Elevator and escalator defects leading to accidents
  • Surface liquid hazards caused by spills, flooding or freezing temperatures

If you suffer serious injuries while on someone else’s property, you have the right to file a lawsuit against a property owner or manager.

Discovering Causes, Confirming Liability

Whether you slipped on ice, tumbled from a broken staircase, fell in an apartment or office building hallway, or tripped on cracks in a sidewalk, our firm can investigate and discover the cause, such as the following:

  • A property owner did not take reasonable precautions when pipes were frozen to protect the safety of customers or passersby.
  • Stairs were not built to code or steps were chipped but unrepaired.
  • Carpet or floor tiles were loose and building owners or managers had failed to remedy the hazardous condition.
  • A commercial landlord knew or should have known about a cracked sidewalk in front of their store or restaurant but took no steps to get it repaired.

With the evidence that we discover, we will build strong arguments in your favor. Our attorneys and staff can help you file a claim to pursue compensation for your injuries. We will work closely with you to seek the maximum compensation you deserve for your injuries.
