Premises liability law employed in slip and fall accident and social host liability cases is specific and best handled by a qualified personal injury attorney. He or she will be able to analyze the details of your case and fight for a better settlement from your insurance company, if necessary. Don’t sign any papers or accept any settlement from your insurance company without your lawyer’s counsel and remember that a claim that is denied can be appealed. We are often able to get our clients five to twenty times the settlement that you would get on your own!
Washington State uses traditional law classifications for the person injured on another person or organizations premises: “invitee”, “licensee” or “trespasser” in determining how to handle a premises liability claim. Generally, however, a property owner owes a reasonable “duty of care” to people visiting their property; which means preventing or clearly labeling dangerous physical conditions unless the danger is so visible that it should be apparent.

How do I know whether I should pursue a premises liability claim?
We believe your well being and the well being of your family and loved ones is more important than money or legal action. However, if you suspect that you or a loved one has suffered an injury or harm from a medical or healthcare provider’s mistake, you should seek the opinion of a qualified malpractice attorney to determine whether medical negligence has occurred and whether or not a claim should be brought.
Do I really need to hire an attorney or should I handle my own slip and fall claim?
In most cases, hiring an injury attorney will yield better results, even for seemingly minor claims. At Tario & Associates, P.S., we stand by our injured clients every step of the way inside or outside of court.
How much do I have to pay to pursue a slip and fall injury claim?
There are no upfront costs or fees paid by our clients to pursue a medical malpractice claim as we provide representation on a contingency fee basis for personal injury cases. While you will not incur any attorney fees if you do not win your case, Washington State law requires clients to reimburse the law firm for out-of-pocket expenses. Our firm advances out-of-pocket costs for our malpractice clients and does not require our clients to pay any of these costs up front. When cases are concluded with a monetary recovery, our firm is repaid out of the recovery for the out-of-pocket costs we have advanced.
