Almost everyone stumbles, slips or trips and falls at some point in their lives. Accidents will happen, and we all accept that, but if you get hurt or injured due to dangerous conditions while on someone else’s property due to someone else's negligence, you can make the appropriate claims for the injuries you incurred. Occupiers such as homeowners, businesses and even government organizations are responsible for ensuring that their property is not unsafe for the general public. Even though you may not own the sidewalk in front of your house or business, you are still responsible for ensuring that the path into your building is cleared of snow, ice and other debris that could make it dangerous to walk on. If you fail to shovel your own sidewalk, and a passerby injures themselves as a result of your inaction, you could be held responsible and be liable for compensation.
Wet and slippery floors, open holes in the ground or floor and poor lighting are some of the conditions that can contribute to slip and fall or trip and fall injuries. If the courts assess that these conditions should have been addressed by the owner of the property, and if they were aware or should have been aware that dangerous conditions existed, the property owner will be required to pay damages to people who suffered injuries as a result of their negligence.
Injuries can range from minor strains/sprains, to concussions and broken bones. Your compensation will vary depending on the severity of your injuries, and whether there is permanent scarring or damage. If you are required to take time off work or are unable to work in your current job after your recovery, this will all be factored into your settlement.
At Dietrich Law, we can help you through the process of filing your claim. Simply tell us the events that occurred and we will determine the facts of what happened to determine your rights, and to build a strong case for you.

No one ever expects to become injured on the job to the point of having to give up their lifelong, much-loved career. It is a devastating and anxiety-ridden ordeal. Your income suddenly tanks, you’re forced to spend your savings and then even start using credit to survive. But when the private disability insurance you have paid into for the better part of 4 decades suddenly terminates the benefits you desperately need to make ends meet… that’s just downright scary. When within 18 months of receiving partial disability benefit payments, I was informed by the insurance company that, in their opinion, I no longer qualified and that my next monthly benefit payment was to be the last, I had no idea where to turn. How does someone like me even begin to take on a massive, multi billion dollar insurance company? It seemed like a David and Goliath situation.
I asked a few trusted people for recommendations and Dietrich Law was the one name that kept coming up. From the first phone conversation with Lina, I had no doubt I was in good hands. Both she and Kathy Simons who agreed to represent me were kind, knowledgeable, and professional through and through. They kept me informed and updated every step of the way, taking the time to patiently explain “legalese” to me whenever I had questions. I will be forever grateful to Kathy and the Dietrich team for successfully fighting for me and giving me back some hope for the future.

When I had my accident in 2016 I was so upset and overwhelmed and did not know what to do. The Dietrich team basically came in and got everything started for me right away. I did not have to worry about anything because they guided me and explained everything step by step. The process was long but everything worked out well. I highly recommend Dietrich Law to anyone looking for a very experienced personal injury law firm., as they will listen to you, take care of all of the paperwork and legal aspects, and let you focus on your rehabilitation and getting your life back of track. Thank you Dietrich Law!

6 STARS !!! All the way. These days customer service doesn't mean what it did years ago. George and Lina came to my home which is over an hour away to assist me with a personal injury matter.
Respectful, professional and knowledgeable to letter. The outcome has been great. I looked forward to the monthly progress reports and genuine positive telephone manner which means a lot to someone in pain.
Thank you George, Lina and Bozena. You are the best in the business !!
