Aggressive Slip and Fall Investigations & Fact-Finding
We thoroughly investigate each case and strive to obtain the information necessary to establish liability and prove damages. In the most severe injury cases, we consult with physicians and other experts that provide detailed analysis regarding causation and determine past, current and future medical damages.
We also work with rehabilitation therapists, life care planners, and social workers to present evidence of the practical difference the injuries mean for your daily life, your ability to work, and the assistance and resources you may need to meet the challenges of ordinary living.
What Do I do If I'm Injured in a Slip & Fall?
If you are injured as a result of a slip and fall, take the following steps immediately:
Inspect and photograph the area where the fall occurred
Try to determine what caused the fall
Find out if anyone saw the incident
Get names, phone numbers, and addresses of any witnesses
If the incident occurred in a store or place of business, speak with the manager or supervisor immediately
Seek medical treatment
Essential Slip & Fall Protocols
Remember, if the business requests that you fill out an incident report form, BE VERY CAREFUL ABOUT SIGNING ANY STATEMENT REGARDING THE INCIDENT. If there are any errors or incomplete information (only contains half of the story), you may be held to an incomplete or misleading representation of the facts.
Additionally, Make Sure to Get a Copy of Any Statement That You Make. If anyone (especially an employee, supervisor or manager) makes a comment suggesting that this type of incident has occurred before, or that they were aware of the condition before your fall, make sure to get the person's name.
