Slip and Fall
Slip, Trip & Fall Accidents and Injuries
A slip and fall accident is a form of personal injury claim that involves a person being injured on another’s property due to a hazardous condition. The victim may slip, trip and fall because of an object in a walkway, a wet or freshly waxed floor, a missing stair, poor lighting or any similar situation. In these cases, the property owner and the victim may be held responsible in varying degrees. The degree of responsibility will vary depending upon the particular circumstances of the accident, and the amount of money that a victim is able to recover for an accident of this nature will vary accordingly.

After a Slip and Fall Accident
There are a number of important steps to take after a serious slip and fall or trip and fall accident:
- Seek medical care as soon as possible.
- If you can, take pictures of the scene immediately so you have evidence as to what caused the accident.
- Make sure you have the property owner’s contact information and inform them of what occurred.
- Do not talk to the property owner’s insurance company or accept a settlement from the owner of the property without consulting a lawyer.
- Contact a lawyer as soon as possible.
Slip and fall accident claims can be difficult to prove. Doing the above and consulting an attorney as soon as possible can greatly increase your ability to recover the greatest amount of financial compensation and therefore have a better chance of rebuilding your life.
