We Take Slip And Falls Seriously
Various conditions can cause slip-and-fall accidents. From slipping in the rain, tripping on debris in the aisle of a supermarket or tripping on a crack in a sidewalk, hundreds of potential hazards could cause a fall.
Injuries from slip-and-fall accidents range from broken bones to traumatic brain injuries. Serious injuries can take a long time to heal and may require ongoing and expensive medical care. When you file a personal injury claim after a slip and fall, you may be able to recover compensation for the time and money you lost because of the accident.
Some common slip and fall causes include:
- Wet floors
- Debris or items in the walkway
- Poor lighting
- Ice or rain
- Poor maintenance
- Poorly maintained stairs or handrails
Determining the responsible party in a slip-and-fall case can be difficult, especially when the accident happened at a business or public place. If you fell at a friend’s home, pursuing legal action and compensation for your injuries can feel awkward. However, you don’t have to worry about impacting your friendship too much. We can help you file a claim against your friend’s home insurance company. Your friend will remain protected, and all negotiations will happen with the insurance company directly for a fair payout.
