Do I Need a Slip and Fall Attorney?

If you are injured on someone else’s poorly maintained property, you are entitled to compensation for your injuries.  This compensation can cover associated expenses such as medical bills, rehabilitation, and lost wages for time off work.  You also have the right to seek recovery from non-economic damages, including pain and suffering.  It is our experience that most insurance companies will attempt to settle your claim for far less than it is worth.  By hiring an experienced slip and fall attorney, you can force the negligent property owner, and his or her insurer, to give you the full compensation you deserve.

What Causes Slip & Fall Accidents?

There are different potential causes of slip and fall accidents. This is an important topic to review if you have been injured in a slip and fall accident, because you may be able to hold the property owner responsible in certain situations. Following are some examples of hazardous conditions that may lead to a slip and fall accident:

To be able to successfully recover financial compensation for your slip and fall accident claim, you will need to be able to prove that the property owner was negligent in some way in regard to maintaining, inspecting or repairing property grounds. For example: a store owner who fails to place a warning sign after a floor is washed may be held accountable if a customer slips and is injured. However, the defense of contributory negligence still applies, and the person bringing the claim must prove they were not negligent themselves in any way. The customer may be able to recover money for medical bills and other economic and non-economic damages, depending on the case.
