Slip and Fall Accident Lawyers
Slip and fall accidents can take place when awareness and cautionary conditions are not provided by a local Phoenix business. These slip and fall injuries can come from liquid or hazardous items on the ground or broken steps or railings. Unfortunately, these accidents can potentially cause a person pain, discomfort, and/or permanent emotional and physical damage.
Slip and Fall Accident Preventions
- In order to avoid a slip and fall injury, the business maintenance crew should put up various hazard signs in order to warn its customers of a possible accident.
- The owner of the premises should also examine whether or not various areas, such as stairs or railings, meet all safety codes and regulations of the State.
- Employees should also periodically check to see if maintenance is required to avoid any unnecessary accidents.
Slip and Fall Accident Consequences
Regrettably, these actions may cause serious injuries such as:
Slip and Fall Causes
Such slip and fall injuries can be caused by, but are not limited to, the following:

Claims Involving Minor Children
When a minor (someone under 18 years of age) has a personal injury claim, in many cases, there is an extra set of procedures that apply to protect the interests of the minor. Specifically, the minor, usually through their attorney, will petition the probate court for approval of the minor settlement. This includes the amount of the settlement, the medical expenses to be paid from the settlement, the attorney's fees and costs, and the net settlement for the minor claimant. A more detailed explanation of this process is explained on our Minor Child Injury Pages.
Claims against Government Agencies or Public Entities
When a government or public employee or agency is negligent and causes an injury, there is a markedly different process involved as compared to a claim against an individual or private business. There is a much shorter time frame to bring a claim and a lawsuit. Therefore, there is an increased urgency to obtain legal counsel to timely submit a claim against a government agency or public entity. A more detailed explanation is available on our Government or Public Entities Claims Pages.
We are able to resolve the overwhelming majority of our cases relatively promptly and without ever having to go to court. However, there are a number of reasons why we would recommend litigation to our clients. When that occurs, our office will thoroughly explain the litigation process, including the risks, benefits, and how it relates to your case before we file litigation. For more detailed information, please review our Litigation Process Pages.
When a person is injured during a visit to a business or building, those who own the land or property are responsible for any injuries that take place; this is called premises liability. If caution and awareness are not a business' main priorities, then a slip and fall accident injury or death will likely ensue.
