What Do I Do After A Rhode Island Slip And Fall? Tips From A Personal Injury Lawyer.

Did you know that if you are injured on another’s property, you may have important legal rights?  At Bottaro Law Firm, we handle premises liability personal injury cases every day.  These claims are sometimes referred to as “slip and fall” or “trip and fall” cases.  With winter coming, today let’s focus on one type of slip and fall, that on ice or snow.

 

Injured On Another’s Property Due To Snow Or Ice In RI Or Mass? You Have Legal Rights!

At Bottaro Law, we know that if you are injured on another’s property, you may be entitled to monetary compensation.  This is because, under Rhode Island and Massachusetts personal injury law, property owners must keep their property free of snow and ice on walkways, stairs, etc. Icy sidewalks, icy driveways, icy parking lots, icy stairs, etc. may all violate the law and provide you with a personal injury case.

These are difficult cases and time deadlines apply.  For more specific information and help, we always offer 24/7 free confidential consultation.  As discussed below, it is important that you call or text us as soon as possible to protect your rights.

 

Injured By An Icy Slip and Fall At Apartment, Home, Store?

Did the property owner not clear a path? Your landlord forgot to salt the steps? Personal Injury from a slip and fall can be very serious. Falls, can result in back, knee, leg, and neck injuries and leave you out of work for months.

You should know that these slip and fall personal injuries can occur just about anywhere.  The location of your slip and fall injury may lead to important laws on your case.

For example, if you are injured on Rhode Island city property, there are special short deadlines that you must comply with or forever be barred from pursuing your case.

Also, when you suffer a personal injury, it is important to collect and gather evidence right away. By contacting us, we can investigate and try to ensure evidence is preserved.

If you fall on your apartment or condo property, you may have questions about contacting your landlord or condo association.  Please, please contact us first before speaking with anyone – what you say may be taken out of context and used against you in your legal claim.
