Anyone can get hurt when they slip, lose their balance, and fall. These accidents can happen to anyone, no matter how careful they are or how old or young they are. And the injuries can be significant. Slip and fall victims are often left unable to return to work or school for some time, and worry about covering their bills or medical costs. Sometimes, victims suffer from permanent disabilities because of what they endured.

When you or a loved one suffers significant injuries in a slip and fall accident because of someone else’s carelessness, you have legal options to explore. You do not have to worry about your medical expenses and lost wages alone. The guidance and assistance of an experienced legal professional are exactly what you need. At the Law Office of David E.

Even what seems like a simple fall can result in life-altering, expensive medical procedures. Board-certified lawyer David E. Gordon can help analyze the costs of a person’s injuries to push for the full extent of financial recovery they deserve.

What To Do After Slipping and Falling

Taking proper action after getting into an accident on someone else’s property is essential. Recommend steps include:

  1. Checking and assessing injuries
  2. Seeking medical attention immediately. Even if a person thinks they have minor injuries or no injuries at all, it is good to take extra precautions and be seen by a professional. Sometimes, injuries take time to become apparent. Medical records and bills can be used as evidence in a future legal claim.
  3. Gathering evidence. Strong evidence is the key to winning a case. Take photos and videos of the scene. Collect the contact information of any witnesses. Write notes recalling the scene.
  4. Obtaining incident or police reports. Get copies of reports filed by property management and police. Do not give too many facts to the other side when working on an incident report.
  5. Contact an attorney for assistance. Insurance companies will be quick to talk to injured parties. Do not speak to them without legal guidance.

When a person seeks to hold a Bartlett business owner accountable for negligent conduct that directly caused their slip and fall injuries, they must have a strong argument and proof. They must show that the owner created the dangerous condition, knew it existed, and was negligent in taking care of it. The law does not impose unreasonable standards upon business owners, so evidence is the most important tool for a case. David is a board-certified attorney who can help injured individuals collect evidence and build a strong legal claim.

Business owners will typically argue that the slip and fall victim was responsible for their own injuries. Their insurance company will also do everything it can to place the blame on the injured party in order to protect their own interests. Insurance companies are trained to resolve cases with the company in mind and not the injured individual. The insurance company will try to save money by downplaying the severity of the person’s injuries and losses. Do not accept an insurance settlement offer without discussing it with a qualified lawyer to ensure it is fair and just.
