Slips and Falls
We have had clients whose entire lives were severely damaged, and some families whose loved one died from slips and falls. These cases arise from defective designs in buildings, from failures to remedy dangers that citizens have repeatedly warned building owners and management about, and in other ways.
When you lose pay or cannot earn in the future, or get hit with medical bills, or have to hire someone to take care of your future medical needs or home because you were injured, the law allows you to prove those losses in court. When you do, the wrongdoer has to pay. You can also get back what you will lose in the future due to loss of your future earning capacity. In death cases, survivors can claim lost earnings, past and future, and non-economic damages.
When the wrongdoer disables or disfigures you, those are non-economic damages. So are loss of enjoyment of life, emotional distress, agony and torment. When a loved one dies because the wrongdoer was careless, survivors can prove losses of the loved one’s companionship, affection, love, advice and guidance.
Wyoming Slips & Falls
Companies, associations and sometimes individuals are responsible when the design public areas. For example, they sometimes design downspouts that pour directly onto sidewalks.
They are at fault when they fail to be careful, and are then responsible the injuries and losses they cause.
