Injuries Suffered In Trip-And-Fall Accidents
As with slip-and-fall cases, the injuries suffered in trip-and-fall cases are often very serious and can result in broken bones, nerve damage, soft tissue injuries or more serious injuries which may be permanent. In many of these cases, the injuries could have been avoided if the property owner had taken reasonable and necessary steps to prevent the accident from occurring.
At Garber Law, we represent the injury victims of trip-and-fall cases and hold property owners accountable for their actions or failures to act. Many of our clients have had their lives significantly impacted by their injuries. They need a skilled and experienced attorney to help get them back on track — to get money for their medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering. We have the skill, resources and experience to fight for your compensation.

The Property Owner’s Duty Of Care To Customers And Others
Property owners are required by law to take reasonable steps to make their property is safe.

Some of the steps property owners could take to prevent trips and falls include:
- Regular inspections of the store premises
