Who is Responsible for Your Injuries?

Injuries and losses in which you or a loved one sustained as a result of a slip, trip and fall can occur anywhere. Determining and proving the responsible party is often complicated. We encourage you to call our office today for a free consultation to discuss your options in further detail.  It is important to view, inspect and retain information regarding the cause, footing and multiple additional issues.

The owner of an establishment or property is required by law to maintain a safe environment. Furthermore, sufficient cautionary warnings should be visible to invited guests. Property owners should be aware of hazardous conditions that can arise to patrons whether it be on walkways, in the home, on commercial property, at a park, etc. Potential hazards are expected to be addressed in a timely manner.

In order to find an establishment or property owner to be careless and/or negligent we will look to the following:

  • Did the property owner fail to properly maintain and/or create a hazardous condition which caused your injuries?
  • Was the property owner aware or should he/she been aware of the hazardous conditions yet failed to warn patrons, such as you or your loved one?
  • Did the property owner, or its employees, create unsafe conditions after failing to perform routine maintenance?

Client Reviews of Our Personal Injury Attorneys

    Friendly, professional and VERY responsive!

    Friendly, professional and VERY responsive!

    Attorney John Buckley was highly recommended to me by quite a few people and upon my first meeting to discuss my case, I knew immediately that I was in good hands. He took his time to explain everything to me in great detail and stayed in communication throughout my entire case. His staff was also extremely friendly, professional and VERY responsive! I actually never had to reach out about my case because they over-communicated with me from beginning to end. My accident was very unfortunate, but I’m extremely grateful I was working with Attorney Buckley through it all! I highly recommend this law firm!!!

    Thorough, caring, and patient

    Thorough, caring, and patient

    I don't have the words to describe how wonderful John Parese was to work with. He took my family and I under his wing during a difficult time. He was by our side for 3 years while I was treated. He was thorough, caring, and patient. He was always there to answer questions and made us feel that he was in our corner. John explained our options and walked us through the process many times. It was WAY outside of my comfort zone to go to litigation, but he believed in me and my case. He was phenomenal in court and I was very proud to be part of his team. We are forever thankful and would recommend him to anyone!
