Is Your Dangerous Prescription Drug Lawsuit Winnable?

It’s not easy to win lawsuits against harmful prescription drugs and their manufacturers, but it is possible. Learn how you can see if you have one.

That’s just the cost of doing business to them.

Can You Win Money For Your Slip and Fall Claim?

You slipped and fell on someone else’s property and experienced injuries. Can you recover money for that? Maybe – find out the truth from Mullen & Mullen.
Slip-and-falls get some negative publicity and some positive publicity. Some people lie or distort the facts, while most have completely legitimate cases.

And just because you fell, that doesn’t necessarily mean the property owner is automatically at fault for your injuries.

Let’s go through some of the details of slip and fall cases:

First, An Unsafe Condition Must Be Present

For example, these situations would present “unsafe conditions:”

The unnatural accumulation of snow and ice on a sidewalk (for example, if a property owner left sprinklers on despite the fact temperatures were below freezing)
Wet and slippery floors in a grocery store
A sidewalk that’s badly damaged
