Slip and Fall Accidents

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report that slip and fall accidents are among the leading causes of injuries in Kentucky and throughout the United States. Property owners have a duty to maintain their property to prevent harm to visitors. This includes repairing hazardous conditions or posting warnings of hazards that cannot be repaired. When they fail to do so, and you suffer harm, our highly qualified legal team at Walker Wallace PLC is here to help you get the monetary compensation you need and are entitled to by law.

Types of slip and fall accidents in Kentucky

Our Kentucky personal injury team is dedicated to holding negligent landlords and property managers responsible for the harm they cause you because of:

  • Wet floors
  • Missing railings
  • Hazardous stairways
  • Slippery stairs
  • Landlord negligence
  • Spilled store produce
  • Obstacles or debris
  • Poor drainage
  • Snow or ice
  • Slippery swimming pool tiles
  • Gasoline spills
  • Dim lighting
  • Potholes or ditches
  • Cracked sidewalks or pavements
  • Construction site accidents

Many of these accidents may cause serious harm, including traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and broken bones, and require short-term care and long-term medical expenses. Our attorneys consider the full extent of your injuries when seeking compensation on your behalf.

Fighting to hold all negligent parties responsible for your injuries

There is no excuse for property owners who allow their premises to be unsafe by failing to clean up spills, fix broken steps or cracked walkways, or post the necessary warnings signs. When they fail to do so, we strive to hold them responsible.

If you were harmed because of a property defect, our attorneys seek compensation for your injuries, such as those suffered because of wet floors or construction accidents, from whatever party is responsible for improperly maintaining the property. This may be a property owner, a business owner, a property management company or a tenant with substantial control over the property, such as a grocery store. In most instances, compensation comes from an insurance company instead of from the property owner directly. Our attorneys have significant experience dealing with insurance companies, including difficult insurers who attempt to undervalue or unfairly deny your claim.
