Check out a recent piece put up by my law partner John C. on our North Carolina (NC) website. He discusses some of the most common types of injuries that happen at stores and other businesses including slip on substances on the floor, being hit by merchandise falling off improperly stacked shelves, construction defects in steps and stairs, and falling into holes and other unrepaired defects in walkways. Our firm regularly handles these kinds of cases which lawyers call premises liability cases. Many lawyers who just do a little personal injury are afraid take these difficult cases on because they know that the insurance companies for the business owners will often fight hard to prevent from paying fair compensation. If you have been the victim of a severe injury from a trip or slip in a store, restaurant or other business that has resulted in hospitalization, surgery, or permanent injury, please give us a call toll-free at (800) 752-0042. Also, unlike many other injury firms, you will normally get to speak to an actual lawyer when you call our firm rather than just an intake person.
