Personal Injury Attorney for Slip and Fall Cases

Imagine you’re at the grocery store. You’re expecting houseguests later in the evening, and you needed to run out to get some last-minute items. You also assumed you’d already have all of these things on hand, so the last-minute trip to the market has you feeling a bit frazzled.

And just as you’re leaving the produce section it happens. You slip on a puddle of water, and down you go.

Reasons to speak with an attorney

In this imaginary incident, if you broke a bone, hit your head on the tile floor and sustained a concussion, or were injured in some other manner, it’s likely you’d be able to pursue a personal injury claim.

It is, after all, the responsibility of a grocery store to ensure that shoppers don’t get injured while they’re on the property. Cleaning up a puddle of water was the store’s responsibility, and in not doing that, it could be argued that the store would be legally liable for your injuries.

What if I trip in the parking lot?

Using the same scenario, if a shopper tripped in the parking lot and broke their wrist, and the incident happened because there was a crack in the pavement, that’s one thing. If the person was injured because they tripped over their own untied shoelaces, that’s another.

If you have questions about whether you’ll be able to pursue a slip and fall or trip and fall lawsuit, it’s best to speak with a lawyer.

Can’t I negotiate with the insurance company on my own?

If you’ve been injured in a personal injury case, you should never, ever try to reach a settlement agreement on your own. Remember- the job of the defendant’s insurance company is to minimize losses. And yes, while a $15, 000 settlement offer can seem like a lot of money if you’re struggling to pay the bills, there’s a chance your case may be worth much more than that.

In some cases, people who are injured in this type of accident takes weeks if not months to recover. The goal is to ensure you get the compensation you’ll need to cover time off work, medical expenses and other related recovery costs.
