Why You Need a Personal Injury Lawyer for Slip and Fall Injuries

Slip and fall accidents are extremely common causes of personal injuries, even though most of them can be prevented. Slip and falls occur, like the name implies, when someone slips and falls on an obstruction, a slippery surface, or some other hazard, resulting in an injury while on someone else’s property.

It is fairly common knowledge that property owners are required by law to provide adequate signage and warnings around obstructions or hazardous conditions along pathways where visitors or guests will be walking, especially if these have the potential of causing a slip and fall resulting in an injury. When this legal obligation is ignored, and no signage has been posted, these property owners can be considered to be acting negligently and can be held liable to any damages or injuries that occur.

While there are many causes for slip and falls, the most common cause is slippery, wet floors that do not have any warning signs posted. Whatever the cause is, most personal injuries can be prevented if proper signage is in place. With this in mind, pursuance of personal injury cases is extremely typical, as the property owner should be held liable for negligent actions.

Do I Have a Case?

When you (or a visitor in general) are unaware of potential risks and hazards because of lack of signage, this could be considered a case for a personal injury claim. This includes if the property owner was aware of unsafe conditions and made no effort to warn others of the hazards, make reasonable repairs, or take appropriate action.

If you have experienced a slip and fall accident while on someone else’s property, and the injury you incurred could have been prevented with proper signage, you may have a case. These negligent actions (or the lack of actions) taken by the property owner can be utilized as evidence should you decide to pursue a case. They can be used to earn you fair a full compensation so that you are able to cover the cost of medical treatments, as well as any other damages that have occurred due to your injury.

What Next?

In order to pursue a case, its best to have an experienced, knowledgeable attorney on your side. Eric Blank Injury Attorneys have the expertise to handle your slip and fall case, and we will do everything we can to prove negligence and fault, so that you can receive fair and full compensation. In most slip and fall cases, the cost of your medical treatment, wages that you have lost from not being able to work due to injury, out-of-pocket expenses, and pain/suffering will be covered.

There are certain steps that you can take that will benefit your case as well. Be sure to immediately photograph the scene of the accident. This will factually present the scene as it was, and can prevent the property owner from trying to claim that you are exaggerating the circumstances. When injured, be sure to seek immediate medical treatment. Do not turn down medical assistance on the scene, and always follow up with a doctor later on to establish a record of the incident and your injuries. Before leaving the scene of the accident, make sure that you gather all witnesses’ contact information, and report the incident to the property owner. By drawing their attention to this situation, they have the opportunity to correct it before anyone else becomes injured.

Overall, it is extremely important to have a reliable and resilient attorney on your side when you experience a slip and fall. The right attorney will fight for you and your case, and will not settle for anything less than what you deserve. Attorneys are also aware of various loopholes and potential work-arounds, and can represent you in a fair and accurate light. If you have experienced a slip and fall accident that led to an injury, contact Eric Blank Injury Attorneys today.
