Slip & Falls
A slip and fall accident can happen at almost any location. We are familiar with seeing yellow stand up signs showing a red drawing of a stick figure slipping. This is to warn those that the floor is wet and they walk with caution. Not all restaurants, offices, and establishments use these signs efficiently. When a person suffers an injury at an establishment, then there is usually a cause for it that could have been prevented. If a walkway contained obstructive materials, was full of holes or cracks, or left wet or icy then they should have brought this to the attention of those passing through or sealed it off. There is a responsibility to take safety measures when people are entering a dangerous area.
Slip and fall accident victims can suffer from broken bones, brain injuries, and even death. The negligent party should be held legally responsible for the victim’s suffering. Negligent parties rarely, if ever, pay out willingly. This is when you need to take your case to a skilled personal injury attorney who can make a claim for your compensation. Filing a claim on your own means seeking a result from a for-profit insurance company that does not have your best interests in mind. They will look for any reason to deny your claim and at best delay any form of payment while you, the victim, amass large medical bills and miss work that you badly need. The law demands that the negligent party compensate the victim for all the medical fees associated with the accident, as well as, payment for the earnings they were unable to make and a sum for their pain, suffering, and mental anguish.
David W. Kaiser, Attorney at Law, is here to help you. His job is to handle the filing of the paperwork and communication between you and the negligent parties. His vast experience in slip and fall accidents has taught him that many times there are multiple parties that contributed to the accident. He will conduct a thorough investigation of the scene and events that led to the accident. Often times, there are multiple acts of misconduct. This can include the employees working at the location at the time of the incident, as well as, the building maintenance and inspectors who allowed a dangerous environment to go unnoticed. He will hold these people and the companies responsible for their negligence to ensure that you receive full compensation to start rebuilding your life. Many companies and insurers fear litigation and will arrive at a fair settlement before spending court fees on a case they can not win. Besides seeking your compensation, you are ensuring this dangerous location is protected from future accidents.
