If you’ve been left with steep medical bills after falling on someone else’s property, it may be time to involve a lawyer.

When investigating a slip and fall case, here are some of the questions a skilled lawyer will try to answer:
If it appears that the property owner has been negligent and that negligence resulted in your injury, you may wish to file a slip and fall claim. A settlement not only helps you recoup your financial losses, it also holds property owners accountable and makes our communities safer.
We do not recommend you file a slip and fall claim on your own. The process is not easy, and it can quickly turn into a case of “he said, she said” with property owners. Our experienced personal injury attorneys have access to experts and know how to build evidence to support your claim. Also, if we’re can’t reach fair settlement, we’ll file a lawsuit.
Let us take the legal burden off your shoulders so you can focus on your healing.
