Slip/trip and Fall Incidents
If a property owner or property manager’s negligence causes you injuries in a slip or trip and fall, please give us a call for a free consultation. There are many forms of negligence that could lead to serious injuries, including: foreign substances on floors without warning, inadequate lighting conditions, slippery paint striping in parking lots, uneven pavement, potholes, lack of railing, and other dangerous conditions. We’ve handle fall down cases involving serious injuries including spinal injuries, spinal surgery, broken bones, knee surgery, shoulder surgery, hip surgery, ankle surgery, and head injuries. The injuries caused by a slip and fall can be life altering. Adding insult to injury, the negligent property owners often do not want to take responsibility and will try to place blame on the victim, arguing that they should have been watching where they were going. Everyone knows that you don’t walk staring at the ground.
If you’ve fallen and have injuries, it is important to hire experienced attorneys as soon as possible so the attorney can attempt to preserve valuable evidence. For example, many companies that have video cameras in their stores will destroy the video if they do not receive a demand to keep it quickly enough. Depending on the facts of your case, if you hire a lawyer as soon as possible, they will be able to hire investigators to photograph the scene and experts to evaluate the dangerous condition. The attorneys at Stechschulte Nell have handled many different types of fall down cases and are prepared to fight to recover for your injuries.
