Representing Victims Of Slip-And-Fall Accidents
Property owners have a duty to properly manage, supervise and operate their property to protect the public from unnecessary risk of harm. If you have been injured due to a property owner’s negligence, you have a right to seek financial compensation for your injuries.
You may be able to pursue a premises liability claim, a type of personal injury claim that enables accident victims to obtain compensation from a negligent property owner. The most common type of premises liability claim is a slip-and-fall accident claim.
How We Can help
We handle a wide range of premises liability claims, including:
- Slip-and-fall accidents

In addition to handling personal injury claims, we represent clients in workers’ compensation cases, which may include workplace slip-and-fall accidents, falls from scaffolding at construction sites and other related accidents.
Causes Of Slip-And-Fall Accidents
People are injured in slip-and-fall accidents in many ways. Common causes of slip-and-fall accidents include:
- Falls on wet or slippery surfaces
- Falls on uneven concrete
- Falls down a stairway (including falls caused by loose stairway railings)
- Trips caused by objects on the floor (such as loose cans at a grocery store)
Slip-and-fall accidents can result in serious injuries, including broken bones, head trauma, spinal cord damage, back injuries, neck injuries and paralysis. In the most severe cases, slip-and-fall accidents can cause death.
Protect Your Rights
If you have been injured as a result of a property owner’s negligence, contact an attorney immediately. The property owner’s insurance company may contact you in the near future if it has not already done so. It may use your statements against you or attempt to offer you a settlement that does not fairly compensate you for your injuries.
If retained as your counsel, we will aggressively pursue maximum compensation for your injuries, including medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages and other forms of available relief. As a skilled negotiator and trial lawyer, Jonathan Coleman Sapp will protect your rights and provide the vigorous representation you need.
