A slip-and-fall accident can be caused by:
- Wet floors
- Torn carpets
- Unsecured cords
- Poor lighting
- Loose floorboards
- Uneven pavement
- Worn or damaged stairs
These accidents can cause a wide range of injuries. Common injuries include broken bones and sprains and strains, as well as traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries. Your injuries will likely require medical treatment, and the costs can add up fast to a significant amount. You may also be left unable to return to work right away, resulting in lost income.
How We Can Help
Property owners are unlikely to admit they were negligent, and insurance companies may not want to pay you a single cent. Their lawyers will likely fight to protect them from responsibility, and you may even be blamed for what happened. That's why you need an experienced slip-and-fall attorney on your side to help you fight back.
Our legal team can investigate your accident to find out what really happened. We will examine all documentation and interview witnesses. Our attorneys can build a strong case that the insurance company has to take seriously, and we make it clear that we are ready to fight for you at trial, if that's what it takes.
Many times, we are able to get insurance companies to negotiate a settlement that meets your needs. And if they won't negotiate, we will take them to court. Our attorneys are experienced litigators who know how to win cases. In addition to medical expenses and lost wages, other damages we can fight for include financial compensation for pain and suffering and emotional distress.
