You must seek a local lawyer experienced in slip and fall cases to effectively maximize your chances of civil recovery. Mann Law can help determine what your trip and spill case is worth and will fight to obtain that compensation.

Proving Liability for a Slip and Fall Incident

Premises liability” in a slip and fall case can be difficult to prove, but our Maine attorneys have 22 years of experience working on these cases. We also consult with experts in property maintenance and conditions to help prove negligence. Every property owner has a duty to ensure safety on their premises and to warn guests of any known dangerous conditions which cannot be remedied in a timely manner.

In order to receive just compensation for your a trip and fall accident, a lawyer must prove that the landowner had a duty to provide a safe property, that they breached that duty as a result of unsafe property conditions, and that their breach of care caused your injury.

Finding the correct person to file against can be extremely difficult. Many businesses and venues have multiple owners or operators, but Chrissy Mann knows how to find the correct defendant for your slip, trip, and fall claim and how to prove their liability for your injuries.
