What makes these accidents so complicated?
Slip and fall accidents often seem straightforward. You slipped and hurt yourself on someone else’s property because they didn’t take steps to protect your safety. What could be so challenging about your case? A lot more than you might expect. Some of the complications that often come up after a slip and fall accident include:
- Property owner denies doing anything wrong
- Property owner claims they took steps to protect people’s safety
- Property owner claims they didn’t know about the dangerous situation
- Property owner blames you for causing your accident
- Property owner destroys evidence
- Property owner’s insurance company denies your injury claim
The stakes are high in cases. Property owners and insurance companies know this. That’s why they may try to deny your claim or pay you as little as possible. That’s when we step in and fight for your rights.
What should I do after my slip and fall accident?
If you or a family member have been injured in a slip and fall accident, we strongly recommend taking the following steps:
- Have a doctor thoroughly examine you right away.
- Take pictures of the place where you fell, if possible.
- Don’t talk to the property owner about your accident.
- Don’t talk to other people about your accident.
- Don’t post anything on social media about your slip and fall accident.
- Contact our law firm right away.
The reason it’s important to not say anything to anyone about your accident is because anything you say or write could later be used by insurance companies to deny your claim. Insurance companies are likely actively investigating your case. They’re searching for reasons to pay you less.
That’s not right and that’s why we want to meet with you. We know how to take on insurance companies and demand maximum compensation. We also understand how sensitive these cases can often be, especially if you know the property owner well. We can be your voice for justice and speak clearly on your behalf. You can count on us.
