Experienced Slip-and-Fall Injury Attorney

Attorney Joe Bernardo has extensive experience handling cases involving public streets, parking lots and sidewalks where:

  • Repairs are not properly made
  • Construction and maintenance are not adequately blocked off from pedestrian traffic
  • Holes are not fixed
  • Chunks of concrete or other debris are left lying around
  • Sidewalks are cracked or uneven
  • No sufficient paths are created around hazardous areas
  • There is a failure to warn or post clear signage advising of a dangerous condition
  • Drainage grates are not aligned or fitted properly

Additionally, we handle cases where parking lots do not have wheel stops, islands or curbing that are painted with a highly visible color and result in a trip-and-fall. Likewise, failing to clean off parking lots, sidewalks and streets to prevent oil build-up can lead to slippery conditions and an increased likelihood of a tripping injury.

No matter what situation leads to an accident, we can help you explore what paths of recovery are available to you. We will negotiate aggressively on your behalf with all interested parties and if we cannot reach a fair settlement, we are always prepared to take your case to trial and present it before a judge or jury.
