Slip and fall accidents are incredibly common.

What a Lawyer Can Do for Your Case
Falls can be incredibly traumatic. You may be dealing with significant injuries and a great deal of pain, plus the financial difficulties that come with extensive treatment. Under such circumstances, it is unreasonable to attempt to handle all the legal responsibilities for your case by yourself.
Instead, you want to hire a lawyer to represent your interests in your slip and fall case. Your lawyer can gather evidence, investigate the circumstances of your fall, bring in witnesses and experts, and negotiate with those representing the negligent party to deliver you the settlement you deserve without you ever having to stress for a moment about your legal concerns. You are likely to receive a much larger settlement with a lawyer than you would on your own.

Slip and Fall Cases We Handle
Slip and fall accidents are incredibly common, and yet, the basics behind them are not very well understood. Some assume a fall will not lead to anything more than a couple of bruises. Others assume falls are always the fault of the person who fell.
Neither of these assumptions is correct. Slips and falls are often not the result of an individual’s carelessness but instead the negligence of others who are responsible for keeping a surface safe.
Some of the common causes of slips and falls include:
- Unsafe stairs that lack handrails or are not kept slip-free
- Overwaxed floors
- Spills that have not been cleaned up
- Improperly secured or ripped carpeting
- Debris on the street or floor
- Merchandise on the floor
- Cords on the floor
- Wet pavement
- Ice on pavement or floors
- Other pavement damage, such as loose gravel, cracked cement, and uneven sidewalks
All of the above can lead to a claim of negligence for your injury, and it is by no means a complete list. Injuries from a fall can be devastating and often include many of the following:
- Broken bones and broken hips
- Sprains and strains
- Torn ligaments
- Traumatic head injuries
- Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
- Injuries to the neck and back
- Damage to internal organs
- Severe bruises, cuts, scrapes, and lacerations
- Scars and permanent disfigurement
- Facial injuries
Some falls may even result in death. If your loved one was killed as a result of a slip and fall accident, you may be able to pursue a wrongful death claim to recover compensation and justice on their behalf.
