Slip and Fall Injury
Slip and fall injuries are the root causes of some of the most common type of injury cases. Icy pavement, uneven sidewalks, wet surfaces, deteriorating concrete, poor lighting, slippery stairs and water damage are contributors to slip and fall cases. The failure of a property owner to maintain their premises, clear their ice, or keep their grounds in a proper state of repair may give rise to a claim for damages.
In the event that you or a loved one has been involved in a slip and fall accident, it’s important to contact a personal injury lawyer right away as there are critical dead lines in many slip and fall cases which need to be met. When suing a local municipality for a slip and fall matter, there is a ten day limitation period to provide the municipality with written notice as to the location of the accident, the nature of the injury and how the accident happened. Failure to serve notice within the ten day limitation period may result in your case being thrown out of Court without you being able to recover any damages for your pain and suffering, lost income or out of pocket expenses. Goldfinger Law does not want to see this happen to you.

In every slip or trip and fall case, it’s very important to establish a strong case on liability. Liability refers to how the accident happened and establishing who’s to blame for the accident.

Goldfinger Law has all the tools necessary to gather sufficient data to establish liability in your case so that you can achieve an optimal result in your case.
