How Slip and Fall Injury Claims Work

It doesn’t matter if you were injured in a restaurant parking lot or at your employer’s job site – if someone may be at fault for the dangerous condition, you deserve to seek justice for your injuries.

Our slip and fall injury lawyers have handled cases that revolve around everything from public swimming pools to corporate chain stores. Stairway falls, walkway slips, warehouse trips – we’ve seen it all. Most commonly, we’ve taken on cases involving:

Construction Site Accidents

Slips and falls often happen at busy worksites where construction workers are present. If you were injured at your place of employment, or while visiting a construction site, you deserve to be compensated for your injury.

Weather-Related Slips

If a store, office, restaurant, or other property doesn’t properly clear away winter ice from their walkways, someone could be seriously injured. Similarly, if an aisle is left slick during a rainy day, a victim could easily slip and fall - and our fall accident lawyers will hold the property owners and their insurers accountable.

Negligent Maintenance

Broken sidewalks, tripping hazards, slippery waxed floors, and general risk factors should be handled by property owners and their maintenance teams. You shouldn’t be left facing the repercussions of someone else’s negligence on your own. Seek legal compensation immediately.

Unclean or Cluttered Walkways

Many victims have slipped or fallen on properties where clutter obscures safe, clear paths. If you tripped over an object because a pathway was too disorganized, unclean, or confusing to avoid doing so, you deserve to pursue justice against the at-fault party.

Our slip and fall injury attorneys know that even a minor accident can have lasting, life-altering repercussions. From broken bones to spinal cord damage and even brain injuries, the aftermath of slips or falls should always be seriously evaluated.

You Don’t Pay Your Slip and Fall Injury Lawyer Upfront

Our slip and fall injury attorneys always work on a contingency fee basis, which means we don’t charge clients until we’ve won fair settlements for their cases. There are no upfront fees, and your initial case consultation is free.

A Word from Our Slip and Fall Injury Attorney

Slip and fall cases often result in serious and debilitating injuries. However, insurance companies will often try to point the finger at the victim of the accident rather than compensate them. It is extremely important in these types of cases to speak with an attorney as soon as possible so the other side doesn’t gain an early competitive advantage.

FAQs About Slip and Fall Injury Lawsuits

Q
What should I do immediately after I slip or fall?
A

If you have fallen on someone else’s property, we recommend seeking medical treatment immediately, for your own health and to establish a record of the injury.

You should also document the scene and evidence, preferably with pictures and video. If other people are around who may have witnessed the incident, try to obtain their contact information.

After, report the accident to the property owner and make them aware of the danger so that a similar accident doesn’t happen to someone else. Then, contact a personal injury lawyer to understand your legal rights.

Q
What do I need to prove to win a slip and fall case?
A

As a victim, you will need to prove:

1) Who was responsible for keeping the area safe (and who failed to do so)
2) How the defendant failed to take corrective action and keep people safe
3) The manner in which the defendant’s actions (or lack thereof) resulted in your injury

The best way to gather all of the necessary evidence and build a bulletproof case is to work with an experienced slip and fall injury lawyer. If you want your full settlement amount, you’ll need to ensure nothing falls through the cracks during your investigation and presentation.

Q
Can I still receive a settlement if I am partially to blame for the injury?
A

In many cases, yes, you may still be eligible. Discuss the circumstances with a personal injury lawyer to determine the extent of your fault and what kind of compensation you can pursue.

Q
Can I be fired from my job for filing a slip and fall injury claim?
A

The short answer is that you should not be fired for filing a claim. If you were injured while working, speak with an experienced trip and fall accident lawyer as soon as possible.

Q
Who will be responsible for paying my slip and fall compensation?
A

Responsibility for payment depends on who is at fault for the accident. In many cases, it’s the maintenance company, builder, architect, property owner, or the city that winds up paying the victim’s compensation.
