Proving That a Slip and Fall Was Caused by Negligence
Slip and fall cases can be very tricky. Thorough investigation of the details is absolutely critical. A fact that seems minor on the surface, such as finding out when the last time that a driveway or sidewalk was salted or shoveled, can mean the difference between success and failure. Pictures often need to be taken, video footage may need to be preserved, and witnesses need to be interviewed. Sometimes engineers may even need to be hired to evaluate a defect in the staircase or the concrete sidewalk.
In every slip/trip and fall, the defense attempts to put blame on the victim. The defense will claim that the victim wasn’t paying attention, was distracted, or somehow already knew about the danger and did nothing to prevent the fall. By fully investigating the scene prior to filing suit, we will have the facts necessary to combat this defense strategy. The photos, videos, and witness statements will establish that the victim was not to blame for the fall. Our attorneys will be careful to gather every little detail, and we will use those details to build a case designed for success.
Slip and Fall Accidents at Work
Many jobs involve going onto other properties and doing work. For example, plumbers and other repairmen frequently work on properties their companies don’t own.
When a person visits a property to perform a work duty and a slip and fall accident occurs, it may be possible to take action against the property owner in a premises liability claim while also seeking workers’ compensation from your employer.
No Fee Unless Your Case is a Success
All slip and fall cases are handled on a contingency basis, which means that we only get paid after we’re successful in getting you the just compensation you deserve.
