Handling a slip and fall accident insurance claim on your own can be difficult. Insurance companies do not want to maximize your payout.

With a lawyer representing you, you can focus on recovering from your injuries with peace of mind that a professional is correctly handling your case. A lawyer can demand maximum compensation from an insurer on your behalf.
Like most types of accidents, slip, trip and fall accidents often trace back to negligence. Property owners who neglect to properly care for, control and maintain their properties can cause and contribute to slip and falls. As the victim of a slip and fall in Medford, you may have the ability to file a premises liability claim against the property owner (or another party) who failed to reasonably prevent the cause of your accident.
Our lawyers at Sweeney Merrigan Law, LLP may be able to help you prove your case. The elements of proof are to establish that the property owner owed you a duty of care, did not fulfill this duty, and caused your slip and fall accident. If the owner of the property or an employee at a business caused your fall, we can gather available evidence and stand by you in the fight for reasonable compensation.
