• Surprise Slip and Fall Accident Lawyers

    How We Can Help You Receive Compensation

    Nobody heads out to work, to a restaurant or out to run an errand with the idea that they may suffer an accident. Yet that is exactly what happens every year to over a million people, and in many cases their accidents are the direct result of somebody else’s negligence or carelessness. Though many suffer only minor and temporary injuries, for some 17,000 people these accidents result in tragic, and often unnecessary deaths, and for hundreds of thousands of others their injuries can lead to unexpected medical expenses, lost wages, and untold pain and suffering.  These accidents are often referred to as slip and fall incidents, and if you have been involved in a surprise slip and fall, the lawyers of Jarve, Kaplan, Granato & Starr can help. Our experienced and compassionate team can provide you with the answers that you need about whether you are eligible to file a lawsuit, as well as legal representation that will get you the justice you deserve.

    Though the term ‘slip and fall’ may give the impression that the injuries that are sustained in these incidents are minor, the truth is that when a person falls they can suffer truly serious injuries, including concussions, traumatic brain injuries, broken and fractured bones, and serious spinal injuries. Most incidents are a result of somebody not paying appropriate attention to the conditions present on their premises. Some of the most common reasons that slip and fall accidents occur include:

    • Lack of outdoor lighting
    • Uneven curbs or sidewalks
    • Foreign object in a walkway
    • Wet or slippery walkways
    • Unexpected holes or failures in a walking surface
    • Failure to minimize harm from weather (ice, snow, wet walkways)

    When you are walking on another person or entity’s property, you have a right to expect that it is properly maintained so that you can walk safely. Every property owner has a duty of care to the public. Unfortunately, when accidents do occur the property owner or their insurance company often tries to blame the injured person for the accident. In a surprise slip and fall, lawyers with experience are the best advocate a person can have. The attorneys at Jarve, Kaplan, Granato & Starr have the experience and knowledge to help you get the compensation you deserve for the injuries that you’ve suffered.

    A responsible business owner will take the time to ensure that their properties are safe and to minimize the chance of accidents taking place. When a business owner or their employees fail to take common sense precautions to ensure the safety of the public, they can be held responsible for what is known as premises liability. The attorneys at Jarve, Kaplan, Granato & Starr can provide you with the legal representation that you need to make those responsible for your slip and fall injuries pay for the damage that they’ve caused.
