Iowa Slip-and-Fall Lawyer

After a slip-and-fall accident resulting in serious injury, a key question is whether the property owner or management took proper precautions or responded appropriately to protect the safety of customers, clients and other visitors to the premises. Did you slip on stairs in an apartment complex because carpet was torn or handrails were loose? Did you slip and fall in the produce department of a supermarket because spilled merchandise had not been cleaned up in time? In such a case, the management may claim to have been unaware of the hazard in time — and that the person who slipped and fell should have been watching where he or she stepped.
