Common Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents
A slip and fall accident is not something to be embarrassed about. If you are hurt in a slip and fall because of someone else’s actions or negligence, you may be owed compensation.
Slip and fall accidents can happen for many reasons, including:
- Wet floors from spills, waxing, or inclement weather
- Electrical cables, loose products, or other obstacles on the ground
- Nursing home neglect
- Broken, damaged, or missing handrails
What a Lawyer Does
Battling the insurance company can be a difficult task to take on by yourself, especially when you’re already dealing with an injury. The good news? You don’t have to do it alone.
An experienced slip and fall attorney will build the strongest case possible and see it through from beginning to end. We would:
- Gather evidence such as medical records and witness testimony
- Assess the injury and its short- and long-term implications
- Negotiate a settlement with the insurance company
If the other side doesn’t agree to a fair settlement, we prepare the case for trial.
Determining the Value of a Case
So how much is your case worth? Every situation is different, but there are certain factors that we look at to determine how much compensation you deserve.
When evaluating your case, we consider elements like:
- Severity of the injury
- Short- and long-term health effects
- Impact on your income and/or employment
Although the insurance company may try to pay you as little as possible, we know what your case is really worth — and we won’t stop fighting until we get you every penny.
