Fall Injury Lawyers in Maine

For slip and fall injuries in Maine, let us be your advocate

Slipping, tripping, and falling are some of the most common causes of personal injury in Maine and throughout the nation. Most injuries caused by these types of incidents are minor, but slips and falls can also cause life-changing injuries and even death.

In many cases, slip and fall injuries could have been prevented if property owners, landlords, managers, and others had taken reasonable actions to make their premises safe.

When property owners expose others to hazards such as broken staircases, unmarked holes in floors, or windows that don’t work properly, they can be held liable for your injuries and other damages. In the legal world, this is called “premises liability,” and it refers to accidents that are caused by unsafe conditions on someone’s property. Other examples include wet or slippery surfaces, walkways covered with snow or ice, lack of adequate lighting, and structures that are not properly maintained or do not meet building or safety codes.
