About Slip and Fall Injuries
Slip and fall injuries are just one aspect of premises liability law. Negligence on the part of a property owner can result in many types of accidents and injuries, but those resulting from a slip and fall are by far the most common. These injuries often occur due to:
- Liquid spills in grocery stores that are not promptly cleaned or marked
- Mopped floors that are still wet and are not marked with warning signs
- Carpet damage or improperly installed carpet that could cause a patron to trip
- Poorly lit or uneven stairways
- Broken, uneven sidewalks
While some of these circumstances may not seem like significant hazards, the truth is that they often result in serious personal injuries such as:
These injuries can have lifelong effects that incur staggering medical expenses. In some instances, they can be fatal.
During the course of our investigation and any litigation, it is pertinent that you do not speak with anyone representing the property owner. Instead, defer their inquiries to your attorney.
Why Hire an Attorney?
It requires an intimate knowledge of personal injury law in order to prove negligence on the part of a property owner. This is largely due to the fact that the property owner is likely insured, and you can expect that the insurance company will attempt to prove that your own actions or negligence somehow resulted in your injury. Even if insurance adjusters concede that the accident was due to the property owner's negligence, they will certainly try to minimize your claim or offer an inadequate settlement.
With Reed & Terry, LLP, in your corner, your attorney will gather extensive evidence and build a compelling case that illustrates the true extent of your losses and proves that your injury was no fault of your own. He will fight for the maximum amount of compensation for your medical expenses, as well as the pain and suffering you have experienced as a result of the injury. Meanwhile, you can concentrate on healing. During the course of our investigation and any litigation, it is pertinent that you do not speak with anyone representing the property owner.
