If you had a party at your house and someone fell down the stairs going into your basement, would you be at fault? If the stairs were in good condition and there was good lighting, the answer is probably not.

Sometimes accidents happen and people get hurt. Not every injury requires a payment to the injured person. The law protects those that have been harmed because of somebody else’s negligence, but it also protects people from claims that do not have a proper legal basis.

We receive a lot of calls from people hoping and expecting to get compensated for injuries they receive in all kinds of accidents. However, it’s not that easy, nor should it be.

At Trevett, Cristo, we will tell you the truth about your case and whether or not the law supports your claim for compensation. If so, we will aggressively pursue your claim. If not, we will let you know that you do not have a case, and wish you a full recovery from your injuries.
