Fall Accident

Premise liability cases often deal with clients who have serious injuries.  We hold the negligent party responsible for failing to take proper action which would have prevented you from falling down because you may have sustained a broken bone or a family member may have even died as a result of the fall.  There are numerous examples of premise liability accidents.  Some are a failure of a property owner to remove snow or ice that led you to slip and fall.  Others include construction workers falling over debris on the floor falling.  The types of cases are endless.

What Can I do for you?

If you have not spoken to me yet, you should take pictures of the scene of the incident and make an incident report and possibly a police accident report.  If you have not done anything yet, call me so we can start gathering all the evidence needed to successfully obtain a large settlement.  Once your cases starts, we will also look into ways to recover lost wages if you are unable to work and find out who will pay for the medical expenses.

You will be entitled to compensation for:

  • Pain & Suffering – Future Pain &Suffering – Permanent Disability – Loss of Earnings
  • Medical & Prescriptions

Every case is different.  If it was easy, then you would not need an attorney.  Numerous studies have concluded that a person will get six times more money when represented by an attorney.  Some of the common types of compensation our personal injury lawyer pursues include payment for:

Medical expenses. This includes anything related to your injuries hospital visits, diagnostic testing such as X-rays and MRIs, surgeries, follow-up doctor visits, medication, etc.

Future care needs. Part of your settlement includes a payment for any future treatment or long-term care needs you may have related to your injury. This can include rehabilitative therapy, future surgeries, etc.

Lost income. Many people are forced to take time off work to recover from their injuries. Others are disabled for the rest of their life and gainful employment is difficult.  You will need to be compensated for past and future loss earnings,

Reduced earning potential for the future. If you cannot go back to work or must take a lower-paying job due to your injuries, we will seek payment for that loss. In addition, if you are disabled, our full-service firm will represent you for an application for Social Security Disability benefits.

Pain and suffering. For pain and suffering, several factors are taken into consideration:

  • The severity of your injury and duration of treatment
  • Length of recovery
  • Perceived pain of your injuries (for example, a broken foot compared to a sprained ankle)
  • Any long-term consequences from your injuries
  • Your age and overall health before the accident
  • Medication needed to comfort
