Your Legal Rights Matter
Property owners are legally liable for injuries that arise on their property if they fail to take reasonable measures or preventative actions. This is called premises liability, but more commonly referred as “slip and fall” accidents.
Property owners and tenants have a duty to protect visitors on their premises from foreseeable dangers. They must also provide adequate warning of any known dangerous conditions like wet floors or a broken staircase to prevent injuries. If you’ve been hurt due to a property owner’s breach of duty to maintain safe conditions, the premises liability attorneys at The McCloud Law Firm will explain your rights and help you recover the damages you deserve.

What Do I Do After a Slip and Fall Accident?
In the event that you slip and fall in a public or private place, it is important to gather as much evidence as possible for your case. Take the following steps:
- Seek medical attention
- Take pictures of the scene
- Obtain contact information from witnesses who were nearby at time the incident happened
- Obtain a copy of an incident report from the store manager
- Contact the team at The McCloud Law Firm
The earlier you gather your evidence, the better chance that it will be enough for a successful claim. We will need to show proof of one of these three things occurred:
- The unsafe condition wasn’t seen or out of view.
- The property owner knew about the unsafe condition and did not take action.
- The property owner created the unsafe condition that caused the accident.
Filing a claim is an important part of any injury law case. Our attorneys will also need to determine who may be held responsible for the accident, what caused it, and why you were on-site – whether as an invitee or trespasser. Why you were on the property affects the property owner’s level of care to you. For example, invitees are owed a higher level of care, and trespassers are owed considerably less or not at all.
The McCloud Law Firm will determine what you are owed based on the circumstances of your case. If we find that property owners are responsible for injuries sustained during our consultation, they may be held accountable, and you can seek compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. If your injury causes permanent disability, then there may also be additional benefits available.
