Since premises liability and slip and fall claims involve complicated laws and legal issues, the first and most important step is to contact an experienced premises liability attorney. A thorough and quick investigation must be conducted and eyewitnesses must be contacted prior to any alteration or modification of the dangerous area. You should contact a lawyer as soon as is reasonably possible.
Also, there may be deadlines and statutes of limitations that may significantly affect your slip and fall case. You should not wait until the statute of limitations period is running out because your attorney will need enough time to complete his or her investigation. Christopher J. Zachar is experienced in dealing with complex slip and fall legal issues and helping people get compensation for their injuries.
Frequently, a property owner in premises liability claims will claim that the injured victim should have seen the hazardous condition that caused the slip and fall. This claim can be weak, considering that retailers often distract customers from watching their steps. Business or property owners use eye-catching advertising and packaging to encourage customers to focus on the products rather than on the floor.
