Portsmouth Slip and Fall Accident Lawyers

Representing Slip and Fall Accident Victims in New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Maine

If you were injured in a slip and fall accident, consult an attorney as soon as possible. If you wait too long, evidence of negligent property conditions may disappear. You may also give up important rights if you fail to provide proper notice to the property owner.

At Zumbado & Associates in Hampton, New Hampshire, our lawyers represent people who have been injured in slip and fall and trip and fall accidents. If you have been injured on someone else's property, we offer a free initial consultation to evaluate your case.

Preserving Evidence

Property owners often claim contributory negligence in slip and fall accident cases. While you can still collect compensation if you are not more than 50 percent at fault, the extent to which you are at fault will reduce the amount of your recovery.

Our lawyers will preserve evidence of negligent conditions with photographs and video. If this evidence is not preserved quickly, the property owner may repair the damage so it is no longer visible. We can also interview witnesses when the event is still fresh in their minds.

Preserving Your Rights

Different rules apply to slip and fall accidents occurring on public and private property. If an accident occurs on public property, your claim will be against the city, county or state. Municipalities have a degree of immunity from personal injury lawsuits. You must provide notice of an injury claim promptly and in specific form. You may only have a few days to preserve your rights.
