Retail and residential property owners are responsible for their visitors’ safety on their premises. Thus, they are liable if you slipped on a wet floor with no wet floor sign when they should have been aware of the spill, and you can hold them accountable for their negligence.
Suppose you suffered injuries in a slip and fall accident. In that case, a personal injury attorney from our firm could prove the cause of your fall, the absence of an adequate warning, and your right to recover accident-related costs. We will collect and organize your evidence and present it to the at-fault party’s insurer. We aim to take care of everything related to winning compensation for you so you can concentrate on getting better.

Define the Liable Party in Your Slip and Fall Case
To hold the property owner responsible for your injuries, you must prove they owed you a reasonable duty of care. A slip and fall lawyer can help you prove they did not uphold their duty, leading to your injuries and financial damages. You must prove:
- The condition of the floor at the time you fell
- How long the floor was wet and unprotected
- The lighting and other environmental conditions
- The owner or an employee knew or should have known the hazard existed
Depending on where your fall occurred, your accident should generate a written incident or police report. Our team will request this report on your behalf. Along with witness statements, photos, and videos, this report will help us identify the at-fault party and hold them accountable for your recoverable expenses.

Common Fall-Related Injuries
According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) statistics, accidental falls lead to 3 million visits to emergency rooms for adults 65 and older every year. You can sustain severe injuries in a fall from the impact itself or bracing yourself against the impact. Injuries can include:
- Scraped palms, elbows, and knees
- Broken bones
- Sprains and strains
- Concussions and other head injuries
- Whiplash and back pain
Falling on a wet floor can result in injuries ranging from a sprained ankle to a catastrophic disability. Falls can also lead to hip injuries that limit your mobility and require surgical correction. In addition, falls are the leading cause of traumatic brain injuries in the U.S.
A fall can affect your physical abilities for long periods and require extensive rehabilitation and recovery—the more severe the fall, the more severe and costly the corresponding injuries. Your medical records and bills will tell the story of your injuries and help us understand their value.
Slip and Fall Accident Compensation
The negligent property owner is liable for the costs you incur throughout the recovery process for your injuries. We assess the costs of your slip and fall from the time it happens until the time your medical team anticipates your full recovery. Your recoverable damages can include:
- Past and future medical bills, including emergency room visits, surgeries, medications, in-home medical support, and assistive devices like canes, crutches, and casts.
- Pain and suffering, including past and future physical discomfort and mental and emotional trauma and distress.
- Past and future lost wages, including full- and part-time income, business losses, and loss of future earning capacity.
You can also recover the costs of traveling to and from medical appointments and hiring temporary domestic help. Our team collects the medical records and bills, pay stubs and tax records, and your written prognosis that proves your right to recovery. Your evidence will also establish the financial value of your injuries and the expenses that stem from them.
