How to Determine Whether You Have a Slip-and-Fall Claim

There are many misconceptions about slip-and-fall claims. Many people believe that they can file a claim simply because they tripped and fell. That is not necessarily the case.

The first factor that needs to be considered is the severity of the injuries. If there were no injuries, there is no claim. We typically handle cases in which the slip or trip led to head injuries, back or neck injuries or other serious injuries accompanied by high medical bills.

The second factor that needs to be taken into consideration is whether the property owner was at fault. A lawyer may be necessary to review this issue and determine whether the hazard that caused the accident was one the property owner knew about or should have known about, such as a spill that was left unattended for hours before the accident. If a spill occurred immediately before the accident, the property owner may not have had any opportunity to address the hazard. There may be no opportunity for a claim in those cases. We will review your case to determine whether you can pursue compensation.
