Slip and Fall

Knoxville slip and fall lawyer Mark Hartsoe represents residents and visitors to Tennessee who have suffered injuries as a result of slipping and falling due to dangerous conditions--whether in business establishments, at work, or outdoors, in public places or private residences. If you or someone you love was injured in a slip-and-fall accident caused by a dangerous condition (such as a slippery floor or unlit staircase), you have a right to seek compensation for your injuries from the negligent party who was responsible for that condition.

You may pursue compensation for your medical bills, pain and suffering, lost earnings (including future earnings), any permanent disability resulting from the injury, as well as other related damages (such as emotional distress or loss of consortium). Please contact us today for an assessment of your case, drawing on our decades of experience with slip-and-fall cases.

Property owners (or people or entities who exercise control over a particular property) are expected to use reasonable care to prevent injuries to others who are on their premises. At the same time, people are expected to notice and act so as to avoid obvious dangers; if they were injured in part because of their own negligence, they may recover less or be barred from receiving any compensation at all. In Tennessee, plaintiffs (or people bringing suit) in personal injury cases, including slip-and-fall cases, can recover compensation for their injuries only if the other party’s negligence was greater than their own.

It is extremely important, therefore, to ensure that a slip and fall incident is thoroughly investigated as soon as possible, and that key evidence is preserved so that it can later be used to prove who was at fault. Photographs of the dangerous conditions as they existed at the time of the accident are extremely helpful in reaching a successful resolution to a claim. Unfortunately, people sometimes suffer severe injuries in a slip and fall—broken bones, brain injuries, back injuries, and the like; in such cases, they will not be able to investigate their own accident.

At the Hartsoe Law Firm, we understand what is necessary to prove negligence in a slip and fall case. We also understand the trauma and expenses that injured people face, in Tennessee as elsewhere, as a result of slip and fall incidents. If you become our client, we will help you build the strongest case possible, negotiate with insurance company representatives on your behalf, and, if necessary, take your case to trial in order to seek fair compensation for the harm you have suffered.

In Tennessee, a claim arising from a slip and fall incident must be filed within one year of the date when the accident occurred. If you were injured in such an accident in the Eastern Tennessee area, whether you are a resident or a visitor, please contact Knoxville slip and fall lawyer Mark Hartsoe as soon as possible to discuss your situation.

Client Reviews
I was on my way to Atlanta and a huge truck rear-ended me and knocked me off the side of the road. I was scared. Didn’t know what to do. I tried working with the insurance company. They are just difficult to work with. I had to call somebody to take care of me. So, My brother told me to call Mark Hartsoe. As soon as I called Mark Hartsoe, he let me know real quick that everything was going to be okay and that he would take care of everything. And, he did. He got me a great settlement. He took the worry off of me.

I was hit coming home late at night by a drunk driver who took off. And the next day I was able to track down his vehicle and get the state police involved. At that point, a family friend recommended that I talk to Mark Hartsoe. Pretty much at that point, Mark handled the police, the insurance company and the guy who hit me. Settled with the actual person that hit me. Outside of that, everything came out great. Did not have to go to court. Got a great settlement. Got my car replaced. Got a check. Mark Hartsoe is my lawyer. Nate Holder

I was involved in a motorcycle accident. It was a head-on collision. I broke my arm, injured by knee. I was out of work for a long time and had medical bills, other expenses. A personal friend handed me a card for Mark Hartsoe. I called Mark Hartsoe from the side of the road and he took care of everything. My case was settled out of court. I received a great settlement. Bike was totaled, motorcycle was replaced. It was easy, painless. About as painless as something like this can be. This is why my lawyer is Mark Hartsoe. John Lusinger
