  • Trips on broken stairs or poorly lit staircases
  • Hazardous materials left in highly trafficked areas
  • Falling objects
  • Store displays in dangerous areas
  • Spills or debris on store floors


Every day, people are hurt as a result of slip and fall related these incidents which could have been prevented. Our firm’s lawyers take immediate action to investigate your injury and its cause, so we can best advocate for you.

One moment in time can change a million after it. I never imagined that anything like this would happen to me; never mind deciding on who would be the right lawyer to represent me; is willing to fight with me, for happiness I seek once again; for what I believe to be right. I found that assurance in Gluckstein Personal Injury Lawyers.


The Gluckstein team was there for us every step of the way after our baby’s catastrophic birth injury. At one of the most difficult times of our lives, we were reassured by our lawyers’ deep knowledge and expertise as well as their genuine compassion for our family. They are truly amazing and we can’t recommend them enough!

The Jennings

The lawyers at Gluckstein were extremely helpful and supportive when I came to them with my case. They handled it very professionally and assertively and always had my best interests at the forefront of their actions. I am very pleased with the outcome and would recommend them to any of my friends and family.

Lindsey Dobben

We couldn’t be more satisfied with the support we got from the entire Gluckstein team following our daughters brain injury shortly after her birth. During a very trying time and after contacting numerous law firms with no response. Once Charles and the staff at Gluckstein took on our case we never looked back.
