Slipping, tripping, and falling are common causes of injury among people. People are clumsy, and due to this, they fall and hurt themselves. We might think that the case of slip and fall injuries is simple, but even these injuries can become complex. Collectively, these injuries are known as premises liability injury claims.
The circumstances that led to the accident, the cause behind it and the environment are the factors that complicate a simple case of slipping and falling. You might think it's just an injury, but if the slip and fall injury claim arose due to the negligence, recklessness, or intentional conduct of another party or an organization, it falls under the personal injury law.
Slipping and falling can seem like a simple cases of injury, but the events that lead to it, make it a complex matter under the personal injury law. Just because you are injured on the property of another does not mean that they are responsible. In other words: property owners don’t need to protect their guests and patrons from every conceivable risk. The slip and fall incident may fall under wrongful death, construction incident, premises liability, and traumatic brain injury. All these categories are an integral part of the personal injury or the tort law. In such a case, you must file a slip and fall claim and receive compensation for all your monetary and non-monetary losses.
There is a variety of contributing factors that may lead to an individual falling or slipping and injuring themselves. Damaged or uneven walkways, wet floor due to rain, cleaning, or snow, broken handrails, inadequate lighting, and dilapidated parking lots. These are the possible factors that may lead to severe slip and fall injuries such as fractured wrists, hands, and ankles, skull, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord, and hip injuries.
All these factors can make proving the premises liability case difficult. That’s why you need an experienced personal injury attorney.
The first step after you incur injuries due to slipping or falling is to seek immediate medical assistance and report the injury to a manager. The healthcare provider will carefully check your condition and provide you with the necessary treatment. Make sure that you collect all the medical bills and invoices and keep them safe. These bills will help you demand a higher claim, covering all the medical expenses in addition to the physical or mental injury compensation. Your personal injury lawyer can also collect this information.
The second step after you have paid a visit to the healthcare provider is to hire legal counsel. It is best to hire a slip and fall lawyer at its earliest to avoid taking any steps that would negatively impact your position in the case. If you think you do not need to hire a lawyer for your claim? You might want to think again!
Be it a slip and fall incident on the school premises or a workplace; you must hire a slip and fall lawyer if the signs point towards negligence, recklessness, or intentional conduct by any other person or the organization.
The first and the most obvious reason why you need to hire a lawyer is that they know the law, better than any other entity. There are several other personal injury lawyers, but it is a smart choice to choose a professional who has expertise in the area of slip and fall injuries. Your lawyer will know exactly how to handle your situation and will also stop the offending party from pressurizing you to make a statement in their favor. The lawyer will help you understand all the possible ways your case can turn and will help you navigate the process.
Dealing with legal matters is very difficult, and it puts you in a stress full situation. Too much stress can slow down the recovery period and can make it worse. When you hire a professional slip and fall lawyer, you can rest and fully recover from your injuries in a peaceful environment. The lawyer you hire will also negotiate with the insurance company, insurance adjusters and the legal authorities, handling everything seamlessly.
You focus on getting better, the slip and fall attorney focuses on everything else.
What’s the best part of this unfortunate situation is that you only pay the lawyer after you receive compensation for your claim. Almost all slip and fall lawyers offer the option of contingency payments. The amount you pay to the lawyer as their fee depends upon the amount you receive as compensation. In case the things do not work out in your favor, and you do not get compensation for your injuries, you do not have to pay your lawyer anything.
When you hire a professional slip and fall lawyer as your legal representation, you raise your chances of getting higher compensation. A lawyer who has spent years in the field knows the worth of your case and tries to get compensation that is equal to the case’s worth. The lawyer will try hard to get compensation for all the medical expenses, any lost wages, and other problems that sprung up due to your injuries.
When you file a claim and hire a slip and fall lawyer, you help the others see the negligence of the property owner. After a settlement, the owner will work to improve the property and take all the necessary security measures that should have been taken before. You help in creating a safer place for others by holding property owners accountable for the safety of their premises.
