Slip & Falls
Slip and falling accidents can be deceptive. Most people assume that a simple slip and fall is nothing to get upset about or bother bringing into a court of law. In reality, though, slip and fall accidents can be incredibly dangerous and can leave terrible, permanent damage to the victim’s body. Injuries from a slip and fall can last for years, even a lifetime, and permanently alter a person’s body or leave them unable to work. In the very worst cases, a slip and fall could result in the premature death of someone you love. If you’ve been the victim of a slip and fall accident caused by someone else’s negligence, the law allows you to seek damages from the responsible party — usually the property owner. You need to speak to an experienced personal injury lawyer at Girvin & Ferlazzo, P.C. right away to make sure that you receive the compensation you are entitled to.
Do You Have Grounds for a Slip and Fall Lawsuit?
You should not have to deal with the physical pain of your accident while also suffering from the financial consequences. Our legal team will work with you to determine if you have grounds for a lawsuit and who is the responsible party. If someone’s negligence was the cause of your accident, you likely have a case. Negligence occurs when someone was expected to act in a reasonable responsible way, but failed to do so. Examples of negligence include:
- Wet floors with no warning signs
- Poor lighting in a stairwell
- Uneven walkways in need of repair
- Icy sidewalks that should have been shoveled or de-iced
- Loose steps that haven’t been fixed
If the property owner or manager knew about the condition and did nothing about it, they could be liable for damages. That means you may be entitled to compensation to help cover the pain and expense of your injuries. Our legal team will build a solid case against the negligent parties by interviewing witnesses, taking pictures of the location, documenting your injuries, conducting independent medical examinations, and much more. We will handle every aspect of your personal injury case, giving it the focused determination that it deserves in order to get you the best possible outcome. Because of our experience with personal injury cases, we know how to navigate the sometimes complicated law surrounding these cases and deliver results. You’ll be in good hands, so you can focus on recovering from your injuries instead of worrying about how your are going to pay the bills for your accident.
