Some slip-and-fall accidents are caused by water or debris left on the floors of buildings. Others by code violations or dangerous conditions that the property owner failed to correct.
If your injuries were caused by the negligence of the property owner or its employees, you may have a claim for compensation. Such cases, however, can present complex issues of fact and law. Insurance companies can fiercely resist paying fair compensation, even when the property owner was clearly at fault. You need an experienced advocate on your side to investigate the many issues in your case and provide effective representation.
At McGowan & Cecil, LLC, we have extensive experience in cases involving slip-and-fall accidents and other types of property owner negligence. We have recovered millions of dollars in compensation for our clients, and we want to help you get the medical care and compensation you deserve. As our client, you will have a strong advocate on your side.

Act Quickly to Protect Your Rights
After a slip-and-fall accident, the property owner or manager often moves fast to correct the dangerous condition and dispose of evidence.
To protect your ability to obtain compensation, you should do the following:
- Get medical attention and follow the instructions of your doctor.
- Call our firm at (301) 761-2007 for a free consultation so we can preserve the evidence.
- Report the accident to the facility manager or owner of the building.
- Get the names and phone numbers of any witnesses.
- If possible, take photos of the condition that caused the accident. Cell phone photos are sufficient.
- Do not give a statement, recorded or otherwise, to an insurance company representative.
