Common Slip and Fall Accidents
A Slip and Fall Lawyer in Portland Can Evaluate Your Claim
Common types of slip and fall injuries include bruises, scrapes, cuts and the occasional broken bone or sprained ankle. Keep in mind that no injury is too small to seek compensation for a property owner's irresponsibility.
At Zbinden & Curtis, we do everything we can to make sure the individual or parties responsible for a client's injuries are held accountable. You may be entitled to compensation for lost wages, lost income earning potential, lost quality of life and pain and suffering. While some types of slip and fall injuries are minor, more serious accidents do occur that may result in severe injury. For example, an accident leading to traumatic brain injury or spinal cord damage may require successive surgeries to repair the damage caused by the fall.
Where Slip and Fall Accidents May Occur
Our experienced slip and fall lawyers in Portland are well-versed in handling slip and fall liability cases such as:

Slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere, including sidewalks or parking lots. If you are injured while renting an apartment or house, you may be able to pursue a case against your landlord.
