A slip and fall injury can be a lot more dangerous than it sounds. While many people associate these injuries with only minor pain and perhaps embarrassment, falls can easily cause severe spinal trauma or brain injuries. Falls represent a leading cause of severe injury and even death among young children and the elderly.
No matter how old you are—and how strong and healthy—all it takes is one unlucky fall to change your life in an instant. All of a sudden, you could face any of the following:
- Oppressive medical bills;
- Missed work;
- Reduced earning capacity;
- Temporary or permanent disability;
- Need for therapy and rehabilitation;
- Intense and debilitating pain; and
- Anxiety and worry over the future.
The physical pain might only be the beginning. Hospital bills, missed work, and potential disability can cause financial strain. You need a skilled and experienced attorney to fight for your rights and win you the compensation you deserve. At the Law Firm of Anidjar & Levine, we specialize in personal injury cases and have helped many slip and fall victims win significant settlements. We can put our skills and experience to work for you.
Regardless of How Your Accident Happened, We Can Determine Who Was Responsible and Seek Compensation.
It only takes a second for a slip and fall injury to occur. Even if you think the injury was your own fault—you were clumsy, not watching where you were going, or failed to notice a wet floor or break in pavement—chances are, another party could bear liability. Our job is to identify that party, gather evidence that proves liability, and win compensation for you. We have a stellar track record of winning significant settlements for slip and fall injury victims. We can put our expertise to work for you.
Did you slip and fall due to any of the following reasons? If so, call us right away:
- A wet floor in a public business or private residence;
- A pavement crack or uneven step in a parking lot or on a sidewalk;
- A loose stair at a place of business or private residence;
- A handrail on a stairwell that failed to support you or prevent a fall; or
- A ground hazard that was not visible, such as an electrical cord.
Give us a call if the circumstances of your injury sound like any of the above. If your accident happened in a different way, we can still investigate your case to see if you have a valid claim for compensation. We can pursue compensation on your behalf no matter how you hurt yourself. The sooner we get started working on your case, the sooner you can start getting paid.
How a Skilled, Experienced Lawyer Can Help After a Slip and Fall Injury
You know that you need a lawyer to fight for your rights and get you compensation after a slip and fall injury, but there are several reasons why you should not trust your case to just any attorney. Chiefly among them is the complex nature of premises liability law. For instance, state law mandates that property owners and managers have a duty of care to guests and visitors. They must keep their property free from hazards, fix any dangers that emerge, and take steps to shield guests from anything that could harm them. If they fail to do so, they may be guilty of negligence and are liable for any damages that occur on their premises.
Premises liability law can be ambiguous, however. It carves out several exceptions that exempt property owners from liability. For instance, the property owner or manager in your case might argue that you were a trespasser and not an invited guest, in which case they have no duty of care to you. Property owners can also avoid responsibility by showing that an injured party was under the influence of drugs or alcohol or engaged in reckless behavior in the time leading up to their fall.
Our slip and fall injury lawyers know how to navigate these gray areas of the law, prove the liability of the responsible party, and win you the biggest settlement possible.
You Deserve Compensation After a Slip and Fall Injury. We Fight for Every Dollar.
You face many expenses when recovering from an injury. Not to mention, you deserve compensation for your pain and suffering. The attorneys at the Law Firm of Anidjar & Levine build a comprehensive case that seeks several types of damages. Depending on the circumstances of your case, we could win you compensation to cover a variety of accident-related expenses.
You might be looking at significant medical expenses as you recover from your injury. For instance, you may have outstanding bills for hospital stays, rehabilitation, medication, and physical therapy. We pursue the responsible party to compensate you both for your current costs and for those we expect you to incur in the future.
Lost Wages and Reduced Earning Capacity
It is possible you will have to miss substantial work as you recover. If your injury is severe, you might find that your capacity to earn a living in reduced on a long-term or permanent basis. We seek compensation to make up for your lost income in both cases.
Pain and Suffering
Because it is difficult to put a dollar amount on pain and suffering, you need the most skilled and aggressive attorneys who can put together a strong case and win you the maximum in compensation.
