Slip-And-Falls On Icy Sidewalks Need Experienced Legal Attention
Winter weather in Colorado can occur well before and well after the actual winter season. As a result, slip-and-falls on icy or snowy sidewalks are common in Fort Collins. If you have been injured in a fall, get the help you need from an experienced law firm.
Our lawyers at VanMeveren Law Group, understand how challenging it can be to recover from a serious slip-and-fall. We have years of experience handling personal injury cases and know how to handle complex premises liability cases. You can trust our firm to pursue compensation and put an end to the case that is in your best interests.
Why You Need An Attorney
Sidewalk and walkway conditions are often made unsafe by freezing rain or snow that melts and refreezes. Many people assume that if they slip-and-fall on someone else’s property, the insurance company will pay for damages such as medical bills and lost wages. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Many insurance companies fight these cases aggressively and will not pay anything unless you can prove the property owner was negligent. This can be hard to do without a lawyer’s help.
Examining All Aspects Of Your Case
The sooner you contact our firm, the sooner we can go to work building a strong case of liability against the property owners. We will get answers to such questions, including:
- How long did the snowy or icy condition exist?
- Did the property owner have the opportunity to clear the condition but failed to do so?
- Did a defect on the property cause the unsafe condition, such as poor drainage or a faulty downspout?
The answers to these and other questions can help us build our case and pursue the compensation you need. We document the effect the injury has had on your life to ensure we obtain maximum compensation for pain and suffering, lost wages and medical bills whenever possible.
