“Adam Greenman is one of the best attorney’s I have ever used. His service and concern for my particular case made getting through something horrible and scary much easier and calmer. His entire staff are very professional, caring and concerned. Adam went above and beyond what I expected. He even opened his office doors on a Sunday afternoon for me when I could not see him any sooner. I highly recommend him for anyone needing an attorney who knows the criminal law and actually cares and is concerned with your actual innocence or guilt. I have only high remarks for the service I receive using Adam Greenman and he will always be the first attorney I go to for legal advice or services.”

His professionalism in court was exceptional. The customer service provided by his staff is flawless. Mr. Greenman always shows compassion and treats me like family. I highly recommend him and will always refer him to my peers if they are seeking legal advice.”

“Although Community Court is an experience I never want to go through again, I am very glad Mr. Greenman was there to help me through it. His experience was invaluable but his compassion for me was what meant the most!”

Frequently Asked Questions

What are common causes of slip and fall accidents?

Common causes of slip and fall injuries in Portland that generally necessitate legal intervention include the following:

  • Poor lighting

  • Broken or uneven steps

  • Slick floors

  • Broken floor tiles

  • Inadequate handrails

  • Faulty elevators or escalators

  • Defective ramps

  • Torn carpets

  • Uneven rugs or flooring

  • Foreign objects on the floor

  • Broken, cracked, or uneven sidewalks

  • Potholes

What should I do after a slip & fall accident?

The first thing you should do is see a doctor and get immediate medical attention for your injuries. Avoid giving a statement to the at-fault individual or company's insurance company or attorney. Once you are able, call Adam Greenman Law to discuss your situation. Keep in mind that there’s a statute of limitations for personal injury cases like slip and falls. If you fail to file your claim before time runs out, you may lose your chance for any financial recovery.

Why are slip & fall accidents difficult to prove?

Slip and fall accidents are among the hardest claims to prove because the defense will always try to blame you for failing to maintain a proper lookout or assuming the risk of the accident and the injury. Fortunately, the law creates certain duties for property leases, owners, and renters depending upon the status of the person injured on their property.

An experienced attorney can walk you through this process and determine whether or not you have a claim

How do I know if I have a case?

The best way to know for sure is to contact an experienced attorney. However, it’s also helpful to understand whether or not you were a  “licensee” and “invitee” when the injury occured.

  • Licensee: A person who comes upon a premises (at the invitation of the property possessor) for their own purposes, often social.

  • Invitee: A person who is invited to enter or remain on a property for a purpose directly or indirectly connected with business or the financial gain of the possessor of the land.

If you were injured falling through the floor at your Aunt Mary’s house, you would be classified as a “licensee,” and Aunt Mary’s only responsibility was to protect you from hazards that she knows or has reason to know about.

On the other hand, if you were shopping at Fred Meyer or New Seasons and you slipped on a banana, you would be considered an “invitee,” because the store would be responsible for protecting you from hazards they knew, or should have known about.

How long after an injury do I have to make a claim?

In Oregon, many personal injury claims, like slip and fall accidents, must be made within two years of the initial injury.

Will my claim go to trial?

Every case is unique, but probably not. Most personal injury claims like this are settled with the insurance carrier for the at-fault party.
