SLIP AND FALL
Slip and fall accidents happen every day and can be especially troublesome because they can happen anywhere and to anyone. According to the National Floor Safety Institute, falls account for over 8 million (23%) hospital emergency room visits, making falls the leading cause of ER visits. These cases can be complex. They require an experienced slip & fall lawyer who knows what questions to ask and what to look for in a case. If necessary, they must also be willing to take your case all the way to court.
Property owners and homeowners have a certain duty of care to keep their property clear of foreseen dangers, well-lit, clean and free of obstructions that could cause injury. When this duty of care is not kept, it can be the cause of serious injuries. Our experienced and well-trained team of lawyers will seek compensation from negligent property and homeowners to pay for medical bills, lost wages, and other losses you may have suffered.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What should I do after being involved in a slip and fall?
If you are injured in a way that you feel may be the fault of another, it is important you take the appropriate steps from the moment the accident occurs to protect your rights and preserve crucial evidence to prove your claim.
Step One: Immediately file an incident report
As soon as the incident takes place, you will want to fill out some type of written documentation at the scene of the incident to record the date, time, and circumstance surrounding the fall. The report should also include the names and contact information for any witnesses, as well as the information for the owners and/or their agents that were present at the time of the incident. If possible, pictures of the scene would also be beneficial to your case.
Step Two: Seek immediate medical attention
It is in your best interest to see a doctor, or go to an emergency room, the same day as the fall to insure your injuries are not more severe that you may estimate, and to document those
injuries to support any claim you may make in the future. Be certain to tell the examining doctor everything about the circumstances of the fall, as well as any pain and discomfort you experienced since the accident. It is important not to ignore any symptoms you may be experiencing.
Step Three: Keep records of everything related to the incident
If your injuries persist, make sure that you obtain ongoing medical evaluations. Medical records are the objective evidence used to establish the value of your case and are critical in supporting a claim for compensation. Personal injury victims also have the potential to be compensated for lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering, so be certain to keep good records and collect supporting documentation for those potential claims.
