Injured In A Slip-And-Fall Accident? We Can Help.
Some of the most common injuries are due to slip-and-fall accidents. They are just what they sound like. You are on someone else’s property, and something happens that could have been prevented:
- You slip in a puddle in a store aisle.
- You trip on a piece of torn carpet in a retail shop.
- A railing gives way and you fall over.
- Your child is lacerated by jagged metal on a playground slide.
- You hit a patch of ice on the sidewalk.
- A dark stairway causes you to stumble.
The injuries that arise from slips, falls and trips can be of almost any type. We have obtained compensation for injuries as serious as paralysis, multiple broken bones, traumatic brain injury and severe burns. In some cases, the result of the injury is death of a caregiver, breadwinner or beloved child.
Slip and falls, or trip and falls, come under a legal concept called premises liability. This principle holds that the owners of a property are obligated to take reasonable measures to ensure your safety. When they fail to do this, they can be held accountable.

The sad thing about these cases is that they are preventable. Since the owner did not care enough to take basic precautions, someone may have been seriously injured, disabled or even killed, resulting in surviving family members filing a wrongful death lawsuit.
At O’Malley Tunstall PLLC, we work to obtain compensation for people injured in slip-and-fall incidents. You may seek compensation for past and future medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering.
Cases Involving Dangerous High-Stacking
Slip-and-fall accidents are not the only risks shoppers face. Some retail stores have displays or merchandise stacked in unstable, dangerous manners. These precarious arrangements are apt to fall on unsuspecting shoppers who can suffer serious injuries. Big-box stores are well aware of the danger of placing heavy objects such as wood high up, creating a danger.
