Federal Way Slip and Fall Lawyer

Have you recently been injured after a fall on someone else’s property? If so, call a Federal Way slip and fall lawyer for help.

A fall can leave you with more than pain; it can leave you with hefty doctor and hospital bills. Unfortunately, this is a common scenario. In fact, did you know that every year, 3 million people in the US are hospitalized with fall injuries?

Slip and fall lawsuits can be complicated and time consuming to bring to court. For that reason, we want you to call our team for help. Our family-owned firm has helped many clients win settlements after a fall.

How do I know if a slip and fall lawsuit makes sense for me? 

Every case is different, so we recommend you meet with one of our attorneys at Ladenburg Law. We never charge for an initial consultation, and you only pay us if we’re able to win you a settlement.

At our initial consultation, we’ll want to know:

  • Were you on the property as a guest, and not trespassing?
  • Was there a hazardous condition that caused your injuries? If so, can you describe it in detail?
  • Do you know if the property owner was aware of that hazardous condition?
  • Was the property owner responsible for your injuries?

After this meeting, we’ll be able to advise you of your legal options. If a lawsuit seems like a reasonable next step, we’ll let you know.

What should I do if I was hurt on someone else’s property?  

Our advice is to always seek medical care first. If your injury is serious or life threatening, call 911.

Once you’ve gotten care, we recommend you take the following actions:

  1. Report the incident. Some property owners have standard reports for noting incidents. If they fill one out, make sure to request a copy.
  2. Snap pictures. You’d be surprised how quickly key evidence can be cleaned up after an accident. Make sure to document and take pictures of the conditions that led to your fall. Also, take pictures of your injuries.
  3. Collect witness information. Make sure to get the names and contact information of any witnesses.
  4. Call our attorneys. The sooner you can involve one of our Federal Way attorneys, the better access to key evidence we have. Ultimately, this increases our potential to secure you the best settlement possible.

Finally, you should know that in Washington State, you have a limited window of time that you’re allowed to file a slip and fall lawsuit. For that reason, we urge you to call us as soon as you’re able.

What kind of settlement can I get for a slip and fall case? 

Unfortunately, there is no easy answer or online calculator to determine the value of your case. In our experience, we see a wide range in settlements because each case is different.

What we can tell you is that we work hard to recover the following damages for our clients:

  • Medical bills, including physical therapy and rehabilitative care
  • Lost wages
  • Disability
  • Pain and suffering

When we meet for our initial consultation, we’ll want to assess the financial and physical impact the accident has had on your life. This will enable us to get a better picture of the potential value of your claim.

Do I need to call a Federal Way attorney about my case?

Should we end up working together, here’s what you can count on our firm to provide:
