How Do Slip & Falls Occur?

A fall can take place both inside and outside and can result from bad flooring, wet floors, poorly lighted steps, weather-related conditions, and hidden defects. Ice and snow, cracks, or potholes are conditions that can cause a serious slip and fall injury. Slip and fall injuries can happen anywhere, and often occur at grocery stores, department stores, in parking lots, and on sidewalks. Property owners are responsible for injuries that occur as a result of a dangerous or hazardous condition on their property, which the owner knew about or should have known about.

Why You Need a Lawyer for Your Slip & Fall

In slip and fall injuries, you will typically be dealing with an insurance company. Some insurance companies tend to make light of slip and fall claims. Insurance companies have teams of people working to pay the lowest amount for your claim. Don’t be at the mercy of the insurance companies.

Many people ask, “Do I need a lawyer?” You want someone with experience and a proven track record. Our Concord and Portsmouth slip & fall accident lawyers include a former state Supreme Court and Superior Court judge, Charles G. Douglas, III. On top of that, he wrote the New Hampshire Evidence Manual, which is used by judges and lawyers across the state regarding evidence in court. This is the knowledge and experience you need to take on the insurance company, protect your rights, and get the compensation you deserve.

What is the Statue of Limitations for Slip & Fall Cases?

There is a 3-year limit when it comes to filing a slip & fall case in New Hampshire. This applies to cases filed for injuries that are caused by the negligence of property managers. This also applies to personal properties that may have been damaged during the accident.
