Slip and Fall Accidents

Legal Help After a Slip and Fall Accident

Slip and fall accidents — and the lawsuits that follow them — have gotten a lot of bad press. News abounds about “litigious” individuals who run to the courthouse after any minor injury caused by a fall, seeking outrageous amounts of financial compensation.

The tabloid news disguises the real truth of slip and fall injury lawsuits.

If the following conditions are all true, a person injured after a fall has the legal right to seek compensation from the property owner:

  • You suffered a serious injury requiring significant medical care
  • Your fall was caused by a hazardous condition on someone else’s property, whether the property is owned by an individual, a business, or the government.
  • The accident could have been prevented if the property owner had repaired the hazard or warned you of the presence of a hazardous condition.*

Seek Early Legal Advice After a Fall That Results in an Injury

So-called “slip and fall” or “trip and fall” cases can be difficult to prove. People who have been injured in a fall — through no fault of their own — often find it extremely difficult to find an attorney to take their case.

It is important to seek early legal advice from a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer — to get a practical evaluation that will help you decide how to proceed.
