The Dangers Of Falling
Slip-and-fall accidents can happen on private, public or commercial property. Common reasons for slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall accidents include:
- Spills or objects on the floor in retail stores
- Broken or slippery stairs and decks
- Structural defects
- Poorly lit areas
- Overcrowded areas
- Potholes and cracks in pavement
We will investigate your accident to determine the cause. If appropriate, we will work with engineers to gather evidence about the accident. This will help us build a strong case for compensation from the negligent party.
People who are hurt in these types of accidents may suffer serious or catastrophic injuries such as broken bones, internal organ damage, back and neck injuries, spinal cord injuries, and traumatic brain injuries. They will need significant medical treatment and may need weeks or months to recover fully. Some people will be left with temporary or permanent disability and may be unable to return to work.
Our attorneys are skilled at negotiating with insurance companies, and we often recover favorable settlements. However, we are also prepared to go to trial when that is in the client’s best interests.
