SLIP & FALL ACCIDENT

 

A SLIP & FALL CASE

A slip and fall accident or also known as a premise liability case involves an injury accident that occurs in places such as supermarkets, restaurants, or other businesses and even private properties.  The injury may result from a slip or fall within those premises due to a defective or dangerous condition such as a wet floor without proper warning signs or a cracked sidewalk or stairway.

5 THINGS YOU SHOULD AFTER A SLIP & FALL INJURY ACCIDENT

  • Stay calm no matter how slight the accident. If you feel dizzy or your head hurts call for medical help or 911. If you believe you have suffered serious injuries, call 911​.

  • If you can do it safely, call the manager or an employee of the store or premise to assist you. Furthermore, report your incident to the manager or employee and request a copy of the report.  If they refuse to release a copy of the incident report due to their store policy, obtain their business card and names of all employees that assisted you​​​​​.

  • Take pictures or videos.  Almost everyone has a camera on their cell phones these days. Use it. Take as many pictures as you can of the scene of the accident and anything related to it. Don't question what is relevant or not at the scene, just take as much photos or video as you can to record the event, especially of any visible injuries to your body. Let an experienced attorney determinate what photos and/or videos will be relevant to your case.

  • Do not make any admissions of fault.  Record only facts and state only facts of the incident if you must.

 

  • ​Contact an experienced personal injury attorney before contacting the insurance companies or other party.​​

5 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD HIRE A LAWYER FOR AN INJURY ACCIDENT

  • Insurance companies don't want to pay you a fair share for your injuries and loss. Insurance companies are in the business to make money, not give it away.  Don't mistake their niceness on the telephone for fairness. Insurance companies are not on your side when it comes to accidents and losses.

  • Insurance companies don't want to help you. They will low ball you and work against you at every point of your case. Have you ever experienced the other driver's insurance company calling you right after an accident for a recorded statement? They aggressively ask you numerous vague and over broad questions, then use your responses against you later when its suits them. We strongly recommend that you have legal representation prior to giving your statement to an insurance company, even your own.

  • Insurance companies don't respect you. They will make every effort to use the law to their advantage only. For example, they may tell you that you must repair your car at "their" preferred  body shop. That is a lie. In California, you have the right to repair your car at "your" preferred body shop.  When an experienced personal injury attorney is representing you, insurance companies limit their game play to a minimum.

  • Insurances companies will often times offer more money for cases involving an attorney than what they would have offered without one.

  • An experienced personal injury attorney will handle your case from start to finish, reducing or eliminating the stress and anxiety typically experienced after an accident of any type. The emotional freedom may offer you luxury of getting back on your feet that much sooner and smoother.  And, best of all you don't have to pay for attorney's fees until your case is won.
