Slip and Fall Attorneys in Wilmington
Pursuing Compensation for Those Hurt While on the Property of Another
Delaware law imposes businesses an obligation to protect the public for unsafe conditions on the business premises. If a business fails to exercise the legally required duty of care and you are injured as a result, you may be entitled to compensation for your personal injuries.
At Bifferato Gentilotti LLC, our slip and fall attorneys employ a tenacious, professional approach to help our clients seek full and fair compensation for their past and future medical bills, lost income, emotional distress, and pain and suffering.
Establishing a Legal Duty of Care in Your Case
In order for a business to be found responsible for your accident, evidence must be produced to prove that a dangerous condition on the business premises caused your injury and that the property owner held a legal duty of care to you.
At least one of the following is true:
- The owner or an employee caused the dangerous condition on the premises.
- The owner or an employee knew about the dangerous condition on the premises and did nothing about it.
- The owner or an employee should have known about the dangerous condition on the premises as would be expected of a reasonable person.
Depending on state law, a property owner or manager may owe a different standard of care to different classes of visitors such as business visitors or social guests. We pursue optimal recovery based on the specific facts of your case.
Where Can a Slip and Fall Accident Occur?
Restaurants, parking lots, parking garages, hotels, stores, and sidewalks are common places slip and fall accidents occur, but they can happen just about anywhere. If you were injured on someone’s property due to dangerous conditions, and you believe the above information about duty of care to be true, you should contact an attorney.

Determined Litigators Working for You
Our Wilmington slip and fall accident attorneys consult with knowledgeable and respected experts while preparing your case. With the assistance of physicians and forensic engineers, our attorneys can pursue the best possible settlements. At trial, these experts are available to deliver clear, professional testimony so the jurors can understand the cause of the accident and the extent of your injuries.
Timely Filing of Your Claim
By immediately consulting an attorney, you can help ensure the collection of valuable evidence. In addition, you will need to abide by the state’s statute of limitations, or deadline for filing. Under Delaware Code Title 10, Section 8119, you have two years to request a civil remedy for your slip and fall case from the state courts.
The lawyers at Bifferato Gentilotti LLC thoroughly investigate every case and often visit the premises where the accident occurred to gather crucial evidence, photograph the accident scene and interview witnesses. With significant delay, you could forfeit your right to file an injury claim by missing the deadline set by Delaware law.
