Advocating for You: Slip and Fall Accident Lawyer

Life can change in an instant. One minute, you’re going about your business… Shopping, working, or even getting a little exercise. Then, a slip and fall accident causes a painful injury that prevents you from earning a living, enjoying time with your family, or doing the things that you love.

What can you do when this happens? If your slip and fall injury resulted from the negligence of your employer, a business, or even another person, then you may be entitled to compensation. Your medical bills and lost wages—even your pain and suffering—could all be someone else’s financial responsibility.

Many people think that a personal injury lawyer only handles car accident or medical malpractice claims. And, while these types of claims are indeed common, those who are injured in a slip and fall accident can also recruit this type of attorney to recover their expenses.

Of course, securing the money that you deserve isn’t always easy. First, you’ll have to prove that the other party did not act responsibly. Then, you’ll need to file the proper paperwork along with any supporting documentation. This can be easier said than done, especially if you are struggling with pain, frequent doctor’s visits, or just trying to figure out how to pay next month’s rent.

Recruiting a Personal Injury Lawyer Can Make Your Life Much Easier

The Ward Law Group is ready to help you. After all, you’re already going through enough. Dealing with the negligent party or their insurance company is the last thing you need on your plate. Insurance companies will do everything in their power to prove that their client wasn’t at fault for your injury. In fact, they may even blame you for your slip and fall accident. As a result, you could lose out on money to pay bills, put food on the table, and ensure your family’s security.

We don’t want to see this happen to you. So, we take care of the paperwork and communications with insurance companies so that you can focus on recovering from your injuries. In addition, our attorneys deliver our award-winning services to both English and Spanish-speaking clients. Regardless of your native language, we’ll make sure that you get the money you deserve for your accident without having to decipher any confusing insurance company lingo.

Common Types of Slip and Fall Accident Claims That We Settle

The Ward Law Group believes that if your injury was caused by the negligence of someone else, then you deserve to be compensated. Our founder, Gregory Ward, once represented the insurance companies. He saw how deserving people were denied money because of the insurance company’s greed. In his heart, he knew that this was wrong. This is why he created the Ward Law Group with his wife Jany Martinez-Ward. Together, Gregory and Jany help injury victims obtain the maximum compensation available for their personal injuries and property losses. And, this includes those victims who suffer from slip and fall accidents.

What is a Slip and Fall Accident?

As the name suggests, a slip and fall accident involves injuries sustained when an individual fell in an unsafe environment. These cases generally fall under an even broader legal category known as premises liability claims. This means that the property owner is responsible for the dangerous conditions that exist at their property.

What kind of dangerous conditions could lead to a slip and fall accident? Common factors that contribute to slip and fall accidents include:

  • Poor lighting
  • Uneven floors
  • Dangerous staircases
  • Torn carpeting
  • Broken tiles or flooring
  • Slippery conditions caused by spills, ice, or rain
  • Leaking ceilings
  • Uneven sidewalks or potholes
  • Cluttered hallways or walkways

Did any of these conditions result in your fall? If you answered yes, then you may be able to file a slip and fall injury claim. Of course, you’ll need to prove the other party didn’t act responsibly. This usually involves establishing that the property owner knew of these unsafe conditions, but refused to act in a timely manner.

Unfortunately, proving these facts can be difficult on your own—especially if you are recovering from a painful injury. An experienced lawyer can perform the legwork to ensure that the insurance company pays attention to your claim and doesn’t just dismiss you as another “clumsy” person.

Types of Slip and Fall Accident Injuries & Compensation

An unexpected fall can cause significant injuries. In fact, some falls lead to weeks of pain and even disabling conditions. Older adults are especially at risk. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 3 million seniors are treated in emergency rooms for injuries resulting from falls every year!

What Types of Injuries are Common with Slip and Fall Accidents?

Did your slip and fall accident cause any of these injuries? If so, then you may be entitled to a cash settlement. In fact, there are two types of damages you can request in your claim.

  • Special Compensatory Damages: Medical bills, lost wages, household bills, and attorney fees can all be lumped into this type of compensation. In many cases, proper documentation is required.
  • General Compensatory Damages: This includes intangible damages such as pain and suffering, psychological distress, loss of companionship, and excessive burden on your family. Requesting these amounts is more difficult and may require consulting with a personal injury lawyer.

You’ve been injured. It wasn’t your fault. So, why do you need a personal injury lawyer? In a perfect world, when you filed a claim, the insurance company would empathize with everything that you’re going through and award you a fair sum of money. Sadly, we don’t live in a perfect world. Most insurance companies strive to make a profit. Who suffers? Injury victims just like you. Insurance companies are more than happy to offer you much less than you deserve or even deny your claim. If you go up against the insurance companies on your own, watch out! A couple of simple mistakes can cost you thousands of dollars.

The Ward Law Group makes sure that your claim is processed correctly with the proper documentation. We will create a rock-solid claim that the insurance company can’t ignore. After all, we’ve already recovered millions of dollars for our clients. Let us help you too!

Maximizing Your Claim: Immediate Steps to Take After an Accident

If you were involved in a slip and fall accident, then the first thing you need to do is make sure that you’re safe and any injuries are addressed. Even if you don’t feel any major pain, you should still get checked out by a doctor. Sometimes symptoms don’t appear until days, or even weeks, after an injury. Plus, any documentation from a doctor is very important when settling your claim.

When possible, take pictures of the scene and request contact information from any witnesses. If you know anyone who has had similar documented experiences on the property, have them write up a statement. Any evidence that you have to prove that the other party was at fault will be to your advantage.

If you believe that your slip and fall was the result of someone else’s negligence, then contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. The law limits the amount of time that you have to file a slip and fall (or premises liability) claim. Waiting too long could missing out on money you need for bills, medical expenses, and keeping your family afloat.

Let TheWard Law Group’s Bilingual Team Help You

Has a slip and fall accident turned your life upside down? You don’t need to take on insurance companies alone. The Ward Law Group helps both English and Spanish-speaking individuals ensure their families’ financial future.

Remember, time is not on your side when you’re considering filing a personal injury claim. If you wait too long, it could be too late. Don’t sacrifice money for your medical bills, suffering, and lost income. Calling 855-DOLOR-55 (855-365-6755) is the first step toward ensuring that you don’t have to suffer financially after a painful slip and fall accident.

All around amazing!

The Ward Law Group made sure that I got the medical care I needed and kept me informed the entire way.
