Personal Injury Attorneys and Slip and Falls

Slip and Fall

If you have been involved in a Slip and Fall accident it is always advisable to speak with a Personal Injury Attorney, especially if you had to obtain medical treatment for your injuries.  A Personal Injury Attorney will tell you whether or not it would be worth your time to pursue compensation for your Slip and Fall injury.

The first thing that a Personal Injury Attorney will look at in you Slip and Fall case is the cause of the accident.  In order for a Personal Injury Attorney to maintain a viable case for you the cause of the accident must be the responsibility of the property owner, who is not you.  The classic example is a wet floor in a grocery store but it can also be debris, trash, equipment or anything that is not usually there to impede your ability to walk through the premises.  If it is a situation where you caused the dangerous condition that led to your Slip and Fall, a Personal Injury Attorney may not be able to do much on your behalf.

The other issue a Personal Injury Attorney will initially look at is how injured you were.  If it is a situation where the Slip and Fall only caused some bruises and scrapes, a Personal Injury Attorney may not be inclined to take your case, as the cost of building your case may be too much relative to the reward.  However, with more significant injuries it is likely that a Personal Injury Attorney will be able to help you with your Slip and Fall case.
