All of us have taken a fall at one time or another. Falls are not always our own fault. Fall victims are sometimes reluctant to pursue a claim for their injuries because they feel foolish for falling, or otherwise sustaining injury, even when they know in their heart that they were not responsible.
A trial is not always necessary to achieve a successful outcome in a personal injury claim. Mr. Ahlstrom and his staff are experienced in identifying meritorious claims. While always preparing his cases for trial, Mr. Ahlstrom is skilled in negotiating favorable pretrial settlements on behalf of his clients.
Columbia, Maryland, Slip-and-Fall Accident Attorney
At the Law Firm of Robert D. Ahlstrom, we have a long track record of successfully representing injured persons in fall accidents for which they were not personally responsible.
Favorable settlements do not just happen; they are the result of diligent preparation.
The area of law compensating such persons is called premises liability. Property owners have a duty to take reasonable steps to avoid injury to others, or at least to provide adequate warning of:
- Dangerously protruding objects
- Objects which may fall
- Other dangerous conditions
Successful settlement against a governmental entity when a client slipped on a wet handicap ramp at a crosswalk and suffered a severely fractured ankle. Our expert was prepared to testify that the material making up the surface of the handicap ramp was unduly slippery in wet conditions.
Successful representation of an elderly client who sustained serious ankle and leg injuries when she tripped over a dangerously raised portion of a sidewalk in a shopping center.
Significant recovery for a person, who slipped and struck her head on the floor when she came off an elevator and stepped onto an area that had just been wet mopped by a cleaning crew, who had failed to properly place warning signs of the slippery conditions.
