How Our Attorneys Can Help With These Claims

Our lawyers will work with you to determine if you have a viable slip and fall case. In handling your claim, your attorney may:

Gather Evidence: To provide that the owner or occupier was negligent in maintaining the property and that this negligence contributed to your injuries, your attorney may:

  • Visit the scene of the accident;
  • Take photographs of the dangerous condition;
  • Review video surveillance to establish how long the unsafe condition existed;
  • Question witnesses;
  • Obtain copies of accident reports; or
  • Review a store’s operational records and store cleaning logs.

Assess Injuries and Necessary Medical Treatment: Your lawyer will review your medical records to evaluate the extent of your injuries. We may also work with a medical expert who may offer testimony regarding the medical treatments and rehabilitation procedures needed for you to recover.

Negotiate a Settlement: In some cases, Morgan & Morgan may be able to negotiate a settlement with the property owner or its insurance company. Cases often settle because property owners and their insurance companies seek to avoid the costs and negative media reports that can be associated with a jury trial. As part of the settlement process, your attorney may present evidence detailing the economic and noneconomic damages you incurred as a result of the slip and fall accident.

Highlighted Slip & Fall: Government Property

Claims against the state government in Kentucky are permitted by section 231 of the Kentucky Constitution. although government agencies enjoy immunity to many types of claims, this section of the state constitution states that, "The General Assembly may, by law, direct in what manner and in what courts suits may be brought against the Commonwealth.\

City, county, and other local governments in Kentucky each have their own processes for handling claims for damages. Many local and municipal governments provide forms for filing claims online or in their offices.

If the place where you were injured is the property of Kentucky government agency, a personal injury lawyer must file your lawsuit within one year. If you’re found partly at fault for your accident due to due to the property condition being obvious (ie: sectioned off by cones) or you weren’t paying attention to where you were walking, you can still recover your medical expenses up to the percent the property owner is found liable.
