Boise Slip & Fall Injury Attorneys
Bruises or wounded pride are not grounds for a claim. But if you fractured an arm or ankle, broke your hip, hit your head, or otherwise suffered serious or permanent injury, you may have a case. A negligent property owner would be on the hook for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and any lasting disability.
Our Boise slip & fall injury lawyers have sued grocery chains, retail stores, restaurants, owners of apartment buildings and parking lots, and a range of other property owners. The key to a slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall lawsuit is whether the owner/property manager (a) had notice of a hazard or (b) should have known of it through routine maintenance and inspection.
For example, freezing rain in a parking lot is not negligence if you slipped before the owner could reasonably address it. But if the proprietor failed all day to put out salt crystals or shovel new snow that covered up black ice, there may be liability. Our skill is in digging beyond the obvious:
- We won damages in a supermarket slip-and-fall on squished grapes by demonstrating that another store used different slip-resistant mats in its produce section.
- We successfully sued an Albertson's store that prided itself on its shiny floors. Our investigation showed that the glossy surface came at the expense of safety — the coefficient-of-slip index was very close to sheer ice!
