How Injuries Often Occur

There are numerous situations where slip and fall injuries could occur. Some falls are the result of negligence, while others are largely unavoidable. Even when you are careful, unexpected conditions can lead to a slip and fall accident, such as:

  • Unmarked wet or otherwise slippery surfaces
  • Food or beverage spills
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Uneven surfaces
  • Poorly maintained flooring
  • Damaged carpets or floor mats

Depending on the circumstances of your fall and the type of property where it occurred, someone’s negligence may be the reason your slip and fall occurred, in which case you may be able to recover compensation with the help of our experienced slip and fall attorneys in Stuart. If you are wondering why you should hire a lawyer, consider that these types of cases can become complex because the parties associated with the property may work quickly to try to get you to accept an unfairly low settlement. Our attorneys have decades of experience with slip and fall cases, and we can fight tirelessly to maximize the compensation you can get for your injury.

Common Types of Slip and Fall Injuries

Slips, trips, and falls can result in a wide range of physical injuries. These injuries can occur when you strike the ground after losing your balance. Some fall injuries involve twisting joints or breaking bones as you attempt to brace yourself during the fall.

Some of the common injuries in slip and fall cases include:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Concussions and other traumatic brain injuries
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Leg injuries
  • Back injuries

Each of these injuries could be disruptive in your daily life. If you are recovering from a serious injury from a fall that was not your fault, you could be entitled to a monetary award. Whether you suffered a traumatic brain injury or broken bones, our firm could aggressively pursue justice on your behalf.

Determining Negligence

Property owners, people leasing properties, and property managers have certain duties and obligations they must fulfill. When they don’t, and an injury results, then they may be held responsible for causing the injury. For example, they have certain obligations to maintain reasonably safe conditions at their properties, or to provide you with a warning of unsafe conditions that have not yet been attended to.

If you have a case, you may be able to recover compensation for the following and for other things:

  • Current and future medical expenses
  • Loss of wages
  • Rehabilitative therapy expenses
  • Pain and suffering

Our lawyers have all of the resources, knowledge, and skill of a leading law firm, and we provide each of our clients with personal service. We will work to help you address your immediate needs after your slip and fall, such as making sure you get the medical care you need. Then we will begin building your case as you focus on getting better.

Compensation for a Slip & Fall Injury

When you hire an attorney to pursue a premises liability case on your behalf, your ultimate goal is to secure financial compensation for your injuries. The value of your potential settlement might not be certain, but our firm will work tirelessly to identify the full amount you are rightfully owed and help you secure the compensation you deserve.

Some of the types of damages that could be available to you include:

  • Medical bills. Your medical expenses could be substantial following a slip, trip, or fall. From emergency room care to ongoing treatment, these expenses can cause sudden and unexpected financial strain. Thankfully, you could recover compensation that pays for this treatment.
  • Lost wages. Missing work can be unavoidable following a slip and fall accident. Any time you miss work, you could also lose out on the wages you were counting on. For serious injuries, you could lose out on weeks or months of income. Replacing that income could be possible through a personal injury lawsuit.
  • Pain and suffering. Physical pain and suffering can come with any slip and fall accident. The injuries often heal over time, but there are situations when your pain could become chronic. This is common following nerve injuries or brain trauma. You could recover compensation based on your pain and suffering.
  • Diminished future earnings. Some injuries are so severe that they permanently limit your ability to perform certain tasks. If your disabling injuries limit the type of work you can do, it could have a negative impact on your future earning potential. You could be entitled to financial compensation based on the wages you will miss out on in the future.

Our firm could review all of the facts of your case before advising you on what it might be worth. Our team is ready to aggressively pursue a fair outcome in your case. Reach out today to learn how we could help.

What does a slip and fall lawyer cost?

Concerned about the cost of hiring an attorney following a slip and fall accident? That is understandable. Attorneys might have developed a reputation for high fees, but you have the opportunity to pursue your case without paying anything upfront. This is thanks to our firm’s approach to billing. We only take slip and fall cases on a contingency fee basis.

A contingency approach to billing gives you the opportunity to move forward with your case without paying anything out of pocket. Our attorneys only collect a fee if we recover damages on your behalf. We keep a pre-determined portion of anything we collect in your case, meaning you will only pay legal fees if you recover damages in your case.

In the rare cases where we are unsuccessful, you will never owe us anything in your case. That means you can move forward with a personal injury lawsuit without facing the risk of walking away with nothing but a bill from your attorney.
