Do I Need a Personal Injury Attorney?
If you want to pursue a lawsuit against a negligent company for your slip and fall injuries, then you will likely have a more satisfactory outcome with a personal injury attorney than if you go it alone. Personal injury attorneys, unlike the general population, have dealt with insurance companies for years. They have also dedicated their careers to the study and practice of the law. They will know what steps to take, what evidence to gather, and what arguments to make to win you the compensation you deserve.
Premises liability cases can be especially complicated. Showing that you were hurt on a property is not enough to recover damages. You will have to prove that the property owner was negligent in their actions. This means you will have to demonstrate that the property owner owed you a duty of care to keep you safe, that they violated that duty of care, that their violation directly caused your injuries, and that your injuries caused you substantial damages. It can be difficult, even impossible, to prove all of these elements without the help of a lawyer, particularly while you are trying to recover from a serious injury. With an attorney’s help, you can focus on your health while they take care of your case for you.

Slip and Fall Cases We Handle
Property owners have a duty to regularly inspect their premises for hazards, warn patrons about those hazards, and promptly fix those hazards. When they fail in this duty, people can be gravely injured. Some of the common causes of slip and fall accidents include:
- Merchandise left on the ground
- Loose wires and cables
- Unsecured flooring
- Escalator malfunction
- Damaged stairs
- Leaves, ice, and snow
Slip and fall accidents caused by these or other hazards can be extremely serious, especially in older adults. Some common injuries associated with slip and falls include:
- Hip fractures
- Spine damage
- Knee injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Shoulder dislocations
- Hand and wrist injuries
- Broken Bones
In an unfortunately high number of cases, slip and fall injuries can also result in death, either as an immediate consequence of the fall or as a complication.

Not only do slip and fall accidents cause terrible injuries, but also, they lead to significant time off work and absurdly high medical bills.

- Medical expenses, past and future
- Lost wages
