Let Park Chenaur Handle Your Premises Liability Claim
If you or a loved one has suffered injuries from a slip and fall or trip and fall on someone else’s property—whether it’s a private residence, public building or a business—contact Park Chenaur & Associates today to discuss whether you are owed compensation for your injuries. Dangerous conditions in buildings, public walkways, sidewalks, and grounds injure thousands each year and are usually preventable if the property owner had kept their premises safe and well-maintained.
With this type of injury, it is critically important to contact an attorney as soon as possible so that an immediate investigation can take place. It is easy for property owners to destroy evidence of their neglect that led to your accident and you don’t want that to happen! Rather than take responsibility for their actions, people will often engage in a cover-up to try and avoid legal liability for their negligence, so you should not delay.
Understanding Premises Liability
Negligence is defined as the failure to exercise the care that a reasonable person would exercise under normal circumstances. It is usually negligence that causes a slip and fall or trip and fall. These terms are often used interchangeably and they are quite similar. Slip and falls occur when someone slips and then falls, just as the phrase implies. This can happen when water, ice or other slippery substances are left on a walking substance and cause an individual to lose their footing and fall.
By contrast, a trip and fall is usually attributed to:
- Holes in walking areas
- Uneven flooring
- Debris in walkways
- Stairs that have protrusions sticking up
- Structural defects
Either of these type of injuries falls under the umbrella of “negligence claims” and are considered “premises liability” cases.
Washington State Slip & Fall Laws
In the state of Washington, property owners are required to take reasonable precautions to ensure the safety of individuals that are legally on their property or premises. When they are negligent and don’t tend to their property and the result is an accident, they are held legally liable under premises liability statutes.
Because business and property owners (and their insurance companies) will typically fight against a payout for this type of claim, you need the expertise of an experienced personal injury attorney that is familiar with this area of the law and has a track record of wins and significant settlements in this type of case.
Here are some steps you should take immediately falling a slip and fall to preserve your rights to compensation:
- Before you leave the scene of the accident, use your smartphone to take photos or video of the surrounding area and your position where you fell.
- Be sure to get shots of what caused your fall including water or other substance on the floor, broken stairs or whatever caused your accident.
- Snap pictures of your shoes, clothes, and injuries either at the scene or the hospital and be sure to do this both before and after your clothing is removed for treatment.
- Also document the weather, surrounding area and any additional factors that could shed light on what happened to you and who is responsible for your injuries.
- Gather phone numbers and names of any and all witnesses that are present at the scene. If your phone shoots video, you can film statements on the spot.
- If you are seriously injured, call an ambulance or proceed to the nearest emergency room for evaluation and assessment of your injuries.
- Carefully secure your clothing and shoes or other evidence that may be needed to document a particular substance that caused you to fall.

And after everything I feel I got a fair deal. I highly recommend them. Also liandra is very kind and helpful…Thank you guys so much
My boyfriend and i worked with Mr. Pustzai on a car accident case. Working with him and his team was nothing short of amazing. They were there for us every step of the way, from the incident until the final court days and beyond that. I have always been able to reach out to Vita and Mr.Pustzai with any questions and get a quick response. They show empathy and are personable as well as very professional! Thank you so much for your work.
Mr. Park was understanding, extraordinarily competent, and hard working. His advice and guidance every step of the way was invaluable and extremely helpful. He was always very easy to reach by phone or email, kept me updated on all aspects of the case and succeeded in getting me a fair and generous settlement.
When you talk with them they are able to walk you through your case step-by-step, and they are able to make you understand each and every aspect of your case.
They handled my case very professionally. They were always very helpful, always available, very kind and great to work with. I felt like I was treated like family.
They just made me feel really secure that they were going to do their best and they were going to fight for me. It just felt nice to have someone care enough to want to do that for us.
My wife and son were in a collision in February, Mitchell was amazing. He made our family feel very cared for and took care of everything for us. A very competent and professional person. If I ever have any issues again I know the first place I’m going. Thanks Mitchell
My case recently closed and I am glad to have worked with Mitchel Pinedo during the entire process. I did not know how to deal with this situation as I had never been in a car accident before. I was not well health wise and neither was my mother. I lost my car as it was totaled and I was not at fault. Mitchel handled the case and exceeded all expectations. He kept me updated and answered all of my questions. Mitchel is very professional and was always punctual to our meetings. I highly recommend you to see Mitchel if you are in need of a great lawyer.
I first worked with Kimberly Yoon about 10 years ago for an auto accident case. Though I had no knowledge of legal procedures, she was so patient and sincerely empathetic. So when I was involved in another auto accident, I knew she was the best person to call. Her level of experience and client care exceeded my expectations. Her assistant, Michael, is just as caring and quick to follow up as she is. Thank you very much for eliminating much of the stress that follows an accident and ensuring that your client gets the best care!
Park Chenaur is the best! I’ve been referring people to Kimberly Yoon for the last three years because she’s amazing! She works hard to get you the best possible outcome for your case and really makes you feel great as a client. My mom was in a auto accident last year and Kimberly was able to get her well above what we were expecting. Thanks again Kim & Park Chenaur!
My mother and I worked with Mitchel Pinedo after our car accident and all I can say is he’s truly wonderful. He made the entire process easy to understand and was extremely helpful. It was our first time seeking out a lawyer and having him help us from start to finish made the whole experience much better and stress free.
I have had a positive experience and will continue to recommended to friends and family. I could not have asked for a better firm or attorney for not one but several cases. Park Chenaur & Associates are honest, courteous, friendly, knowledgeable, and have been very important and good to me for several years. I highly recommend!
Very happy with the end result. Never thought I would get a million. Great friendly hard working people. Thanks again.
