Why You Need to Get a Lawyer
A fall can be much more than an embarrassing incident. In fact, they are one of the leading causes of death in the United States.
Many falls are caused by negligence on the part of the facility where the slip happened, but proving that negligence requires a full investigation, a great deal of legal knowledge, and access to experts.
Slip and fall cases often fall under the category of premises liability. There are many criteria that must be met in order to successfully bring a premises liability case. Meeting these requirements on your own can be difficult, if not impossible. A lawyer, however, will know exactly what it takes to prove negligence.
After a fall, victims often deal with physical and emotional trauma that can lead to months of rehab and a fear of falling, even if the physical damage can be healed. At that point, it is an incredible burden to expect victims to pursue compensation on their own from facilities that are at fault for the initial slip and fall.
A far better course for such victims is to work with a lawyer with access to the means of investigation, a thorough background knowledge of Rhode Island law, and experience winning slip and fall cases.

Slip and Fall Cases We Handle
Many of the slips and falls that individuals suffer are the result of negligence on the part of those who own and operate the location where the fall occurred. This negligence can come in many different forms, but it all amounts to the same thing: someone’s negligence caused your fall, and they should be the one to pay for the suffering and financial burdens of the victims.
Some of the most common slip and fall cases that we see are the result of these circumstances:
- A slippery surface with no warning to those passing by
- Debris that hasn’t been cleared from a path
- Uneven sidewalks or other surfaces that make it easy to trip
- Ice and snow that hasn’t been cleared from a walkway
- Stairs without a handrail
- Uneven stairs or steps
- Trash that has not been cleared away
- Liquid or food spills that have not been cleaned up
- Low ceilings with no warning for passersby
- Potholes with no signs to call attention to them
- Cords and ropes laying across a walkway
- Carpet in poor condition
These and other slip and fall risks can lead to significant injury or even death. Injuries can include broken bones, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord damage, hip displacement, and many other expensive and painful forms of harm.
