A trip and fall accident is one of the most difficult cases for an accident victim to win.  This is particularly true of trip/slip and falls on snow and ice during Wisconsin winters.  As a consequence, many experienced trial lawyers are no longer willing to represent people hurt in these kinds of accidents.  At Peterson, Berk & Cross, we judge each trip and fall case on its individual merits.  If we conclude, after a careful and thorough investigation of the facts, that the fall was caused by another person's negligence, we will agree to proceed with the case.

What Happens If I Cannot Settle My Personal Injury Case? By Attorney John Peterson

Peterson, Berk & Cross's personal injury attorneys are experienced, hardworking, and committed to serving their clients' best interests at all times.
