Lacey Slip and Fall Lawyer 

If you were injured in a slip and fall accident on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to compensation. A Lacey slip and fall lawyer can help investigate the cause of what happened, determine liability, and file a claim.

Our team of dedicated attorneys have decades of experience in helping clients win fair personal injury settlements. A settlement can help you recoup your financial losses so you can focus on your healing.

Startling Statistics about Falls in the US

We often think of slips and falls as minor events, or even make light of them. But for victims, slips and falls can be serious events requiring hospitalization and physical therapy.

Consider these sobering statistics from the National Floor Safety Institute:

  • Falls generate 8 million emergency room visits each year, making it the leading cause of all emergency room visits.
  • Slips and falls are the leading causes of all workers compensation claims.
  • Each year, one out of every three persons aged 65 or older will experience a fall.
  • Nearly a quarter of slip and fall accidents result in more than 31 days away from work.

Common Injuries in a Slip and Fall Accident

While falls can cause all kinds of injuries, here are some of the more common types we’ve seen in our practice:

  • Soft tissue injuries – such as sprains and strains
  • Fractures
  • Head injuries – including concussions
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Cuts and abrasions

Sometimes, these injuries require extensive medical care. It’s not uncommon for an elderly victim to need long-term nursing care after a fall.

You may be Entitled to Compensation for your Fall

Depending on the circumstances, you could be eligible to receive a settlement for your fall. Property owners are responsible to make reasonable effort to keep their property free of hazards and safe for guests (RCW 4.24.210). A good personal injury lawyer will take the time to investigate the following:

  • Were you a guest on someone else’s property, and not a trespasser?
  • Was the property aware of the hazard that caused your fall? Were steps taken to warn others of the hazard?
  • Were you at least partially to blame for the fall?
  • Were your injuries severe enough to cause damages (such as hospital bills and missed time from work)?

If we choose to work together, you should know that we work on a contingency basis. This means you only pay us if we’re able to win your case. You won’t have to pay anything upfront for our services. This fee structure makes it possible for more people to obtain the justice they deserve.
