Slip and Fall Subrogation

If you have a matter involving injury or damage resulting from an unsafe condition on the property of another, MWL’s team can assist in pursuing your claim or defending you. Property owners be they homeowners or sophisticated commercial entities have certain legal obligations that vary from state to state under statutes, codes, and common law to maintain safe premises and to warn of unsafe conditions. Some states have heightened duties under specific statutes to maintain a safe place for the public and for employees. Our team from across the country can help you navigate the laws of your jurisdiction to determine if there was an unsafe condition or failure to warn.

Our team will work for you from the inception of the claim to preserve evidence and identify and retain the appropriate experts, coordinate their work, identify the causes of the issues, and identify the proper responsible parties. We have teams of experts at our disposal versed in the appropriate professional standards that are necessary to make or defend your case. We will identify and pursue issues such as whether appropriate notice was available or can be inferred from the facts.
