A business owner is responsible for ensuring that sidewalks, walkways, and other areas of the premises are safe and free from dangerous conditions for patrons and customers. When a business owner knows of an unsafe condition, there is a duty to warn the customers or patrons of the dangerous condition. When a business owner does not carry out this responsibility, a slip and fall accident may result due to an icy sidewalk, a puddle of water, a stairway in disrepair, or uneven flooring. If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident, a personal injury attorney will answer the questions you have and work to ensure that you are properly compensated by the insurance companies for your damages.
Many people injured in accidents are quickly overwhelmed with the correspondence from the insurance companies and the mounting medical bills. Insurance companies have trained insurance adjusters who are interested in serving the best interests of the insurance company rather than ensuring that you receive all of the protections provided to you by Delaware law.
In addition to helping you recover your lost wages and ensuring that your medical bills are paid, a personal injury attorney will work to make sure that you receive money damages to sufficiently compensate for your pain and suffering.
