Slip and Fall
Protect Your Rights After You Sustain an Injury on Someone Else's Property
Did you get hurt on someone else's property? Then you may have what's known as a "premises liability" case, which can include "slip and fall" claims. Most property owners have the responsibility to maintain their property in a safe manner and eliminate or warn of dangerous conditions.
Premises liability can happen at work, especially if there is construction being performed at your workplace. If you have been injured from a slip and fall while at work, you may be able to recover workers' compensation.
Although a slip and fall may not seem like a serious event, it can have serious consequences to your health. A Hoffman Law premises liability lawyer will inform you of all the rules and regulations that apply to premises liability, including the statute of limitations, who should be held liable for your injuries, and whether the property owner's negligence is, in fact, responsible for your injuries.
Call the attorneys at Hoffman Law Firm today to schedule your free consultation. We want to help you recover the slip and fall damages you deserve.

Take the Next Step When You Suffer Due to Medical Malpractice
You might need to have a medical device implanted in your body to improve your quality of life. Sometimes, these devices are improperly designed, tested or manufactured and they degrade your quality of life instead of improving it.
When a defective medical device injures you, the manufacturers of that product should be held responsible for the harms and losses they cause. By filing a defective medical device claim, you may be able to recover compensation for many different types of losses, including:
- Medical costs
- Lost wages
- Future medical costs
- Pain and suffering
- Permanent disability
If you or a loved one have dealt with any of these consequences due to a defective medical device, call Hoffman Law Firm today. We'll advise you about how to get the results you and your family need to move on.
