Slip and Fall Evidence

Slip and Fall

After a Slip and Fall it is important to gather as much information about the accident as you can, as soon as possible.  The reason being that even with the help of Slip and Fall Attorneys it is important that you have enough information and evidence that your Slip and Fall Attorneys can do the best job possible for you.

Obviously, after you have suffered a Slip and Fall that has caused you serious injury the last thing on your mind is to put together the most compelling legal case possible.  However, it is important to start collecting evidence immediately because it will help your Slip and Fall Attorneys get you the greatest amount of compensation possible.  The need for this immediate action is that often times the cause of the Slip and Fall is a temporary condition of the property, i.e. snow and ice or water/grease on a floor; while it may have caused your Slip and Fall chances are it will not still be there in an hour.  That fact makes it easy for property owners to deny liability for the accident when you and your Slip and Fall Attorneys have no proof that the property was ever dangerous.

Therefore, when you have a Slip and Fall you should immediately take a picture of what caused your fall, also get the contact information of any witnesses.  Next, you should immediately report that accident to the property manager and have a report filed.  These basic steps will help insure that your Slip and Fall Attorneys can get you the compensation you deserve.

Personal Injury and Disability (Part I)

Personal Injury

Personal Injury Attorneys are confronted with many different types of cases and Personal Injuries.  Most of the cases that Personal Injury Attorneys see are minor in the sense that at some point the client will regain all functionality and the compensation that the Personal Injury Attorneys obtain are for medical costs, as well as pain and suffering.  However, Personal Injury Attorneys will also see injured clients that have suffered Personal Injuries so debilitating that they are no longer able to maintain employment and support themselves.  With a Personal Injury of this magnitude it is important to speak with Personal Injury Attorneys to see what options you have to support you and your loved ones now and in the future.

If your Personal Injury was caused by the negligence of another you have a few options for your long-term support.  First, if the severity of the injury is such that you believe you are disabled you will most likely be due a great deal of compensation from the party responsible for your Personal Injury.  However, your injury may be such that you require long-term medical care or while the amount your Personal Injury Attorneys obtain for you may be great, it is not enough to cover your needs indefinitely.  In that instance you should speak with your Personal Injury Attorneys about disability options both private and public.
