Tucson Slip & Fall Accidents Attorney
David E. Hill, P.L.C.
We have all had occasion to experience what is commonly referred to as a “slip and fall” on someone else’s property. Typically it is illustrated in cartoons by a person sliding across the floor on a banana peel or the like. But the nature of some injuries arising from these type accidents can be very serious. In some instances, in a split second, a person can suffer a profound contusion, fracture or brain injury which, ultimately, can result in death. If the incident was caused by an unreasonably dangerous condition on someone else’s property, a claim for the injuries sustained against the property owner, or the person or entity responsible for creating the condition, may exist and may be substantial.
I have successfully handled these claims, know what the applicable standards are, how the insurance industry evaluates them, and can provide you sound advice and representation.
In Arizona the legislature has imposed certain limitations on the presentation of a claim for personal injury or wrongful death (an “injury”). Generally, a person has only 2 years from the date of the “injury” to file a lawsuit. Further, if the responsible party is a public entity, a person may have to prepare and file what is known as a “Notice of Claim” no later than 180 days (6 months) after an “injury” so as to preserve the right to file a lawsuit after that, if necessary. If you have sustained an injury, do to not procrastinate with respect to your decision to consult with a Tucson slip & fall accidents attorney regarding a possible claim. If you miss one of the deadlines referred to above, you may lose the opportunity to be compensated for your loss.
