Slip And Falls Can Happen Anywhere
Slip-and-falls can happen anywhere, from slipping in the grocery store or gas station to falling at a nursing home. If you or a loved one has been injured in a slip-and-fall accident, you may be able to bring a premises liability claim against the negligent store or property owner to recover compensation for medical bills, loss of income and other damages.
The reality is that slip-and-fall cases are the hardest personal injury cases to prove, causing many personal injury lawyers to turn their backs on clients with valid claims. Furthermore, juries are not always on the victims’ side in these cases. That is why it is vital to find an experienced personal injury attorney who is ready and willing to fully investigate your case and prove that your injury was caused by a property owner’s negligence.

Do You Have A Slip-And-Fall Case?
Like any premises liability case, you must be able to prove a few things before you can recover compensation for your injuries. Most importantly, you must prove that the property owner was negligent by showing that he or she knew of the dangerous condition and failed to remedy it or warn of the danger.
Did you slip on water in the grocery store? If so, we will ask these questions: How long was the water on the floor? Did the store employees fail to put down a “caution” sign or mop up the water in a timely fashion? Did they know about the water? Should they have known about it?
What Should You Do After A Slip-And-Fall Accident?
If you have been injured in a slip-and-fall accident on someone else’s property, there are steps you should take as quickly as possible to help your case:
- Get medical help. Getting immediate medical help is not only important for your well-being — it also helps determine how much compensation you are entitled to in your premises liability case.
- Find out where you fell and what you slipped on (water? spilled coffee?).
- If you are able, take pictures at the accident scene, including pictures of the floor/what you fell on, the liquid/substance and nearby coolers, machinery or other potential culprits.
- Take down the names and numbers of any witnesses at the scene.
- Contact an attorney ASAP. The quicker an attorney can investigate your case and preserve evidence that proves negligence, the better.
