Helping slip and fall victims recover the costs of care

Property owners have a duty to inspect and maintain their premises to keep them free from hazardous conditions. When a repair cannot be made in a timely manner, a person charged with overseeing a property’s maintenance, such as a superintendent, then has a responsibility to post a warning sign so that the harm can be avoided. If you were injured as a result of a property owner’s negligence, contact our Oklahoma City slip and fall attorney at the Kanelopoulos Law Firm.

What to expect after a slip and fall accident

With the help of our Oklahoma City slip and fall attorneys, you can file a lawsuit against the municipality, landlord or store owner who failed to take adequate steps to keep sidewalks, aisles and walkways free from hazards. However, if a property owner alleges trespass, earning a fair settlement may prove to be more difficult.

Our slip and fall lawyer in Oklahoma City can help you locate the appropriate witnesses and subpoena their testimony so that you can prove your legal claim.
