Importance of Premises Liability or Slip and Fall Cases

premises liabilityOne of the most important things to know about a premises liability or slip and fall case is that there are notices the towns and municipalities that have to be made within a short period of time from when you fell on a municipal property in order to pursue a claim against the town or the city. If you do not put that notice in, you will be barred. So it’s very important that you contact this firm as soon as possible after the fall occurred on a town or municipal property to protect your rights.

If you slipped on a sidewalk or a highway or a town road in Rhode Island, it’s very important that you come in and see me as soon as you can after it happens. There are very strict notice requirements in Rhode Island to the cities about slipping falls or tripping falls on municipal sidewalks or highways. If a proper notice is not given to the town within that very short period of time, you will lose your right to bring an action against the town municipality so again, it’s very important if you slip and fall on a highway or a sidewalk to contact us this form as soon as possible so we can get that notice out right away.
