Slip and fall accidents and other personal injuries occur in a large variety of settings, and the individual or entity in possession of the premises upon which the accident occurred may be responsible for your injuries.
Where can slip and fall cases occur?
Such settings might include a home or a business. The latter includes, for example, stores, parking garages, parking lots, theme parks, malls and shopping centers, hospitals, airports, government buildings, restaurants, private businesses, and hotels. Causes might include slick or wet floors; fallen, spilled, or improperly placed substances / objects; uneven or damaged surfaces / floors / stairs; loose carpeting; inadequate lighting; and failures to comply with applicable building codes.
What types of injuries and damages are involved?
The injuries can range from being minor to suffering fractures / broken bones and/or permanent damage to your limbs, spine, muscles, head / cognitive functioning. Serious injuries may also result in disfigurement and/or scarring or even death.
You may require extensive medical treatment, rehabilitation / therapy, and may sustain much lost time at work or, worse, may not be able to return to work. Relying upon the law relating to slip and fall accidents, we will pursue compensation on your behalf for your costs for medical bills, out-of-pocket expenses, lost wages, lost past and future earnings, the pain and suffering that you experience, and any other form of compensation to which you are entitled.
Why is it important to hire an experienced lawyer?
Keep in mind that being represented by an experienced attorney can cause you to avoid mistakes that might affect the value of your legal claim. The owner of the premises, as well as the insurance company, will most certainly have experienced legal counsel, and it will not be their goal to look out for your best interests. Instead, their goal will be to keep claim costs down and minimize the amount paid out on each claim. Thus, it is important, if you believe you may have a claim, for you to seek legal advice as quickly as possible after your injuries occurred in order to preserve evidence and to allow your attorney to be able to pursue all applicable remedies. Jackson Law International welcomes the opportunity to discuss your claim with you in confidence.
When you contact us, your consultation will be free, and you pay no fee unless we obtain a recovery. The attorneys of Jackson Law International look forward to being able to serve you.
