Kitsap County Slip and Fall Lawyers

Pursuing a Claim Against a Negligent Property Owner

When you visit someone else's property – whether an individual’s home, store, or government building – you don't expect there to be any hazardous conditions there that could cause you to slip, fall, and become injured. While many property owners maintain their premises and allow for a safe environment for visitors, others do not. When their negligence was the cause of your accident, you may be entitled to file a claim against them. In these types of cases, the property owner could be held financially liable for damages you suffered.

Slip and fall cases aren't always easy to navigate. You must prove negligence caused your accident and you suffered harm as a result. At Glisson & Morris, our lawyers have nearly 50 years of combined experience, and we have handled complex personal injury cases. We know the types of arguments the defendant will try to raise to avoid compensating the victim. That is why we are diligent when handling these types of cases. When you retain our services, we will review the evidence and build a compelling strategy to work toward recovering the just compensation you deserve.

To get started on your case, call us at (360) 526-8191. Your initial consultation is free.

Seeking Compensation in a Slip and Fall Case

Property owners have a responsibility to keep their premises free from hazards that could harm others. A slip and fall case arises when they fail to uphold their duty, and their negligence causes an accident.

Various conditions could lead to a slip and fall accident, which include, but are not limited to:

  • Lifted carpets
  • Poorly lit stairwells
  • Wet floors
  • Raised or cracked sidewalks
  • Grounds covered with rain, ice, or snow
  • Potholes

If you fell and were injured on someone else's property, to recover compensation, you must prove that the owner was lax in their duty to maintain their premises or repair hazards. Generally, you must show that the property owner knew about or caused the unsafe condition and failed to take timely action to remedy it.

Unfortunately, when you seek compensation in a slip and fall case, you will face counter-arguments from the defendant, which is usually the property owner's insurance company that has lawyers working to protect their financial interests. It may claim that you were at fault (or at least partially at fault) for the accident. Having a Kitsap County lawyer on your side throughout your case can help challenge such accusations.

Ready to Deliver Experienced Legal Advocacy

Our team at Glisson & Morris understands the stresses and financial strains associated with a slip and fall case. That is why we will conduct a detailed review of your circumstances and work toward recovering just compensation on your behalf.
