Slip and Fall Accident Attorney in Phoenix, Arizona
Accidents are a part of life. They can happen anywhere, in supermarkets, in restaurants and hotels, in pools and at other people’s homes. But when an accident on someone else’s premises happens that was avoidable and causes you or a loved one serious harm, you are entitled by law to seek compensation for your injuries. This is called premises liability.
At the Erlichman Law Firm, in Phoenix, Arizona, attorney Joseph Erlichman has nearly 30 years of experience representing people who have been hurt in slip and fall accidents and other types of accidents that resulted because a property was not reasonably maintained.
When Reasonable Care Was Not Taken to Keep the Property Safe
- Was there water on a supermarket floor that should have been cleaned up?
- Were there lights missing in a parking lot so that someone was unable to see the exit?
- Was a stairwell poorly maintained or somehow defective causing someone to slip and fall?
In premises liability matters, your lawyer generally needs to show that the property owner did not exercise reasonable caution with regard to keeping the property safe.
Attorney Joseph Erlichman has handled cases related to slip and fall accidents, including a recent situation when a young basketball player seriously injured his back slipping in a gym as a result of a leaky air conditioner that left a puddle on the floor.
Third-Party Liability Matters
Sometimes a person who suffers a workplace injury may be entitled to compensation for a personal injury over and above a workers’ compensation claim. This is called third-party liability because someone else, not the employer, is responsible for the person’s injury.
Attorney Erlichman represented a construction worker who fell from defectively constructed scaffolding while on the job and seriously injured himself. The contractor who built the scaffolding was ultimately held accountable for causing the injuries.
