When You Are Injured in a Fall: Get the Right Attorneys for a Successful Slip and Fall Injury Claim

Falls are the second leading cause of accidental death. Every year in the US, falls create more than 25,000 deaths and nearly 9 million visits to the ER. Those over 65 are most at risk of falling.[1]

Whether you are at work, in a store, in a government building, walking down the street or on private property, you have the right to travel there safely, without fear of injury or death.

Building owners, employers and municipal agencies are responsible for keeping their properties safe, and can be found legally liable when people become injured or die due to a fall on their property.

AFTER A FALL: KNOW YOUR RIGHTS

If you were injured in a fall due to the negligence or recklessness of another party, you have a right to compensation for lost wages and benefits, medical bills, rehab, therapy, pain and suffering, and other losses and personal damages you might have suffered.

You will need skilled legal help, because filing a claim for damages is complex process. The burden of proof is usually on the injured party. It is up to you or your attorney to prove that the owner or public agency responsible for the property was negligent, and that the accident was not your fault.

If the victim is a child, elderly or disabled, the claim takes on a whole other level of seriousness.
