Slip And Fall
Parker & Frey PLLC has a respected reputation for taking care of clients. We don’t run a personal injury factory. Instead, we truly work hard to meet our clients’ needs and offer them the attention they deserve.
With offices in Fayetteville and Dunn, our slip-and-fall accident attorneys have the experience you seek. In one case we handled, a property owner cleared the snow from a parking lot but failed to remove the clear coating of ice on the pavement. Our client slipped and hit his head, requiring dozens of stitches.
In another case, water kept leaking into the laundry room of an apartment building, resulting in several residents slipping and falling.
Did The Property Owner Have Notice Of The Condition?
You must be able to prove that you did not contribute to the accident. You must also prove that the property owner had notice of the dangerous condition — and this can sometimes be quite challenging.
For instance, you may have slipped on a banana peel in a restaurant, but did the restaurant owner or staff know it was there? Did they have time to pick it up, or was it dropped only a minute before you stepped on it? In such cases, we will use surveillance tapes and other means to investigate the situation and determine if the property owner was negligent.
Our lawyers represented a woman who slipped and fell in a grocery store. A new employee had left too much water on the floor while mopping the aisles. In this situation, we were able to prove that the grocery store had notice of the condition, because another employee had previously commented that the person mopping was using too much water. We were also able to show that our client was not at fault in any way, because the water was too clear to see and there was no warning sign posted.
