Providing high-quality service for those injured in trip and fall accidents

Landowners, business owners and others who are in control of property have a duty to reasonably inspect and maintain the premises, as well as warn of dangers. If a property owner fails to ensure that there are no cracked sidewalks, uneven flooring, spilled produce or other hazards — and you are injured because of these defects — you may be able to recover compensation from the negligent owner. Each slip and fall lawyer at McCarthy & Kroes has the knowledge and experience to help you obtain compensation for your injuries, including pain and suffering, medical bills and other harm, when dangerous property conditions cause an accident. Our decisive, personable lawyers help victims injured in slips and falls caused by all types of property defects:

  • Grocery store spills and other spilled produce
  • Slippery or wet floors, stairs or sidewalks
  • Missing handrails
  • Garbage spills
  • Poor drainage
  • Leaks
  • Puddles or ice
  • Floor cleaning products
  • Swimming pool accidents

Each injury attorney also offers seasoned and compassionate representation for victims of all types of trip and fall accidents:

  • Parking lot accidents
  • Cracked or uneven pavement, sidewalks or flooring
  • Torn or buckling carpeting
  • Tree roots in sidewalks
  • Potholes
  • Electrical wiring
  • Broken stairs
  • Unstable surfaces

Injuries caused by falls

Trip or slip and fall injuries are often serious and may include broken bones, including hips fractured in a hard fall, twisted or broken ankles, broken arms, and wrists injured from trying to break your fall with your hands. Many slippery or uneven surfaces can cause you to fall hard enough to sustain a back injury such as whiplash or serious fractures, dislocation, or crush or compression injuries to the spine. In fact, falls cause more than 25 percent of all spinal cord injuries. In addition, falls are a leading cause of brain injury in the United States.

What can we do to help you?

At McCarthy & Kroes, we are committed to helping you obtain compensation from property owners, as well as insurance companies when there is a homeowner’s, business or other insurance policy. We thoroughly analyze and investigate your claim, gathering and preserving key evidence, to help you determine who the liable party is and whether a condition of the premises created an unreasonable risk of harm that resulted in your injuries and gave rise to a claim for premises liability. With 25 years of experience litigating accident cases, as well as training in anatomy, we understand the full extent of your injuries and the worth of your claim.
