Slip and Falls

Virgin Islands Slip and Fall Lawyers

Slip, Trip, and Fall Injury Claims 

Property owners—from hotel managers to landlords, retailers, and even government agencies that oversee public areas—have a responsibility to people who visit their premises. They must remove, repair, or warn of potential hazards on the property and conduct adequate maintenance to prevent accidents and foreseeable injuries. When they fail to do so, innocent people can be seriously hurt—and property owners can be held liable. 

If you slipped and fell on someone else’s property due to unsafe conditions, poor property maintenance, or hazards that the property owner should have known about yet failed to remove or adequately warn you about, reach out to Fischer Redavid PLLC. Our Virgin Islands slip and fall lawyers represent tourists who have been injured in hotels and resorts, retail stores, restaurants, public parks, and other unsafe spaces. We also assist residents and workers who have been injured in serious slip, trip, and fall accidents. Get in touch with us today to learn how we can help you with your claim.

In most cases, the property owner or manager is liable for your injuries and damages following a slip and fall accident. 

To have a case, you must be able to prove all the following elements: 

  • You were injured, and your injury led to measurable damages for which you can be compensated
  • You were injured due to a dangerous condition or hazard on the property 
  • You were lawfully on the property when the incident or injury occurred
  • The dangerous condition or hazard was not so “open and obvious” that you could have reasonably avoided it 
  • The property owner knew about or should have known about the dangerous condition or hazard
  • The property owner failed to take reasonable measures to remove, repair, or warn guests of the dangerous condition or hazard
  • You were not negligent in the incident that led to your injury
