We Can Help You Recover the Costs of Expensive Medical Treatment
According to the National Flooring Safety Institute (NFSI), slip and fall accidents lead to more than a million emergency department visits every year. Fractures are the most common fall-related injury, but slip and falls can also result in head injuries, back, neck, and spine injuries, and severe contusions.
Treatment for slip and fall accidents can amount to tens of thousands of dollars or more. If a property owner’s negligence caused you injuries, they should pay for your medical expenses. Berger and Green can help you fight for awards for:
- X-rays, MRIs, CT scans, and other diagnostic testing

Who may be liable for your injuries depends on where your accident took place. We can help you determine liability.
If your accident happened in a restaurant, retail store, bar, or other commercial property, our lawyers could help you prove the property owner, business owner, or employee created the condition that led to your fall.
Slip and falls that occur on residential property may also be the fault of the property owner. However, liability could fall with a renter, residential property developer, or entity in charge of maintenance.
If your slip and fall accident occurred on public property, such as a state-owned building or city-owned sidewalk, we can help you with a case against a government entity.
Common Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents

- Cracked sidewalks
- Loose tile and floorboards
- Torn or ripped carpeting

- The property owner should have posted a warning or blocked off the dangerous area where your fall occurred.
- The property owner failed to plan or schedule regular property maintenance.
- The property owner created a dangerous condition by blocking a walkway, not providing adequate lighting, etc.
