We Can Help You Get The Justice You Deserve For Slip Trip Or Fall Injury
Even the most mundane accidents can have serious consequences. From issues like chronic pain and loss of mobility to dealing with medical bills associated with a slip accident or a fall injury, the services and assistance of a qualified lawyer can be essential for ensuring that slip trip and fall claims and other legal efforts to recover financial compensation will be met with greater success. Professional legal services may be a crucial asset for those dealing with a trip injury that has occurred on-site at a business or commercial property, falls that happen within a private residence and any injuries that may have been caused by hazardous environments or unsafe conditions.
Most people aren't experienced in dealing with insurance companies. They will need the help of an experienced personal injury attorney. These legal professionals are able to gather the facts of a case and determine fair compensation. Personal injury attorneys know how to handle insurance companies and get their clients everything the law says they're entitled to receive.
Being Injured On-Site At A Business
Slip accidents are the most common type of premises liability claim, with the vast majority of injuries involving customers who are visiting a business or commercial property. It is the legal responsibility of all commercial organizations to provide customers, visitors, and patrons with a safe environment free of potential hazards. Those who suffer a slip accident or fall injury that may have been caused by wet floors, unmarked obstacles or a lack of proper safety equipment may be entitled to financial compensation.
Falls Suffered at a Private Residence
Not all accidents occur on-site at a business. Falls that result in a trip injury often happen to those who are visiting a friend. While legal slip trip and fall claims that stem from an injury which occurred within a residential property differ from those that take place on-site at a business, there may still be grounds to file a claim or to recover financial compensation through other legal efforts. While residential property owners do not share the same duty to identify and address hazardous situations as commercial businesses, situations that pose an unreasonable risk of harm may still require legal resources in order to address.
Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer For Slips, Trips, And Falls
Speaking with an attorney as soon as possible following a slip accident or a fall injury can be of the utmost importance. Accident victims who choose to make do without the legal guidance and representation that only an experienced lawyer can provide could be placing themselves at a very serious disadvantage. Working with the right attorney makes it much easier for accident victims to learn more about their situation, explore their available options and ensure that any insurance claims or legal efforts can be brought to a more successful conclusion.
Scheduling a Consultation
A consultation can provide you with the opportunity to learn more about your situation, rights, and options. Arranging for a free consultation is the first step towards recovering any compensation you may be owed following a trip injury or fall that may have occurred due to an unsafe environment. Ensuring that slip trip and fall claims can be handled as effectively as possible is never a consideration that should be left to chance. If you or someone close to you has recently been injured by a slip-and-fall accident, arranging for a free legal consultation can help.
Why You Should Act Quickly After a Slip, Trip, or Fall Injury
After you’ve been injured as a result of a slip, trip, or fall, you need to act quickly. There are two main reasons delaying can harm your case.
First, we have to prove that someone else was at fault for your slip, trip, or fall. Over time, evidence that helps us prove that someone else was responsible can change or even disappear.
The location of your slip, trip, or fall can change. Stores or other types of properties frequently undergo renovations – that is why it is important to document the scene of the accident, including the floors, railings or other aspects of the property that may be important to the case.
Documentation can also disappear. For example, important store video surveillance evidence may exist that shows what happened. However, often stores record video on a “loop” that automatically records over the previous video. Unless action is taken quickly to demand that this video evidence be saved, it can forever be lost.
In addition to proving who was at fault for your slip, trip, or fall, we have to prove that your injuries were caused by the incident.
Sometimes it’s obvious that your injuries were caused by the accident – broken bones, catastrophic spinal cord injuries, or other life-threatening injuries are easy to prove. However, many serious injuries are more difficult to prove or can go on for a long time without being diagnosed, such as ligament injuries, herniated disks, or mild traumatic brain injuries.
The longer you wait to get medical treatment, the more difficult it becomes to prove that your injuries were caused by the fall and not by something else. That’s why it’s important to seek medical treatment early to make sure that your doctors accurately identify the full extent of your injuries. If too much time passes between the fall and your injuries being completely diagnosed, it opens the door to a defense that “something else may have happened” to cause your injuries other than the incident at issue.
All too often, slip, trip, or fall victims either delay treatment or receive inadequate treatment that does not fully diagnose their injuries. They then settle their case cheaply, not realizing that they have a herniated disk in their spine, a torn tendon in their joint, or permanent ligament damage. Several years later, they are living with chronic pain that could require surgery and are left holding the bill – a bill that should have been collected from the person who is responsible for the accident.
