Kotak Personal Injury Law represents people who have been injured in slip & fall (or trip & fall) accidents caused by unsafe conditions. The falls may occur outdoors or indoors, and in either circumstance, the property owner and others can be held responsible for negligence if they failed to maintain a safe property.

A few of the causes for slip & fall accidents are:

  • Failing to plough or salt snow and/or ice;
  • Failing to clean the floors properly after a spill or leak;
  • Failing to place warning signs on slippery floors;
  • Leaving merchandise in aisles or allowing merchandise on shelves to stick out into the aisles;
  • Failing to fix broken railings or other safety features;
  • Failing to properly secure carpeting or rugs.

You may be able to pursue a claim for damages against a municipality. However, there are strict time limits involved, and one should contact a lawyer as soon as possible after the accident has occurred. Claims against municipalities may be a result of snow, ice, poor lighting, potholes, and uneven sidewalks or steps.

Kotak Personal Injury Law has helped victims receive compensation for the negligence of malls, department stores, motels, arenas, municipalities and independent contractors who have been hired to clean or clear snow and ice.
