Slip-And-Fall Accidents

In the event of a slip-and-fall accident that causes serious injury, it is common for premises owners, managers and/or insurers of premises owners to claim that the person who fell was careless and therefore partially or fully responsible for his or her own injury. Lawyers for the other side may get even more aggressive and investigate the background of the person who fell, seeking for evidence to show that the fall injury was most likely caused by a pre-existing medical condition.

Before your opponents get too far along in their efforts to blame you for your slip-and-fall accident, it is important to have your own attorney on your side, ready to advocate on your behalf. You may have medical bills to pay after suffering an injury such as:

  • A head injury
  • A broken leg or ankle
  • Injured tailbone
  • Broken arm

A broken bone often triggers reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), a condition that causes excruciating pain. It is very difficult to treat. A prompt investigation into the causes of the slip-and-fall accident can help prepare you to file a lawsuit if that becomes necessary.
