Slipping and falling is a leading cause of Worker’s Compensation claims, traumatic brain injuries (TBI), and hip fractures. Unfortunately, broken bones and head injuries can be expensive to treat and may leave you out of work and struggling to pay your bills for some time.
In severe cases, you might even become permanently disabled and find that you can’t return to work at all.
Older adults are at higher risk, but anyone can experience a fall, especially in the presence of hazards that make slipping or tripping more likely. Here are some common issues that cause falls:
If you recently fell on another party’s property and suffered injuries, we recommend speaking with a slip and fall attorney to learn more about your rights and options if you want to pursue compensation. This consultation is free and confidential.
Sometimes, after a slip and fall accident, the injured person doesn’t think they want to pursue a lawsuit or seek compensation in any other way. They may write the experience off as a simple accident that could happen to anyone or assume it was unavoidable.
In some cases, they may be right.
But then they start receiving medical bills for everything their health insurance didn’t cover. They may spend several days, weeks, or even months out of work because of their injuries, while those medical bills still need to be paid—along with all their regular living expenses.
At the same time, the injured person might be in a lot of pain that doesn’t go away as quickly as they’d hoped. As their financial and physical stress grows, they start to wonder if there’s any way to cover their expenses.
If you or a loved one are in a similar situation, please contact a personal injury attorney immediately. In many cases, we may be able to help you find a solution and recover your damages.
This is an important question to answer before proceeding with your case.
Many people don’t know why they fell, or they mistakenly assume it was their fault. They might tell us that they were walking one minute, and the next, they were on the floor, or they may have looked around afterward and noticed nothing amiss.
To prove negligence, we will show that there was a hazard on the property that the owner should have known about and addressed. If you aren’t sure what happened, we’ll investigate the accident, quietly visiting the scene and observing how it looks now.
In some cases, our investigators have found the hazard that caused the client’s fall still exists in a public area like a store. In other situations, the owner may have finally put up a sign, but the hazard itself remains, or there could be evidence of recent repairs.
We are more likely to find the cause of your accident if you contact us quickly after your fall, but there are other options if we don’t immediately spot any issues at the scene. Our investigators will try to find witnesses who observed your fall or search for photo or video evidence, sometimes available from security or doorbell cameras.
Sometimes, we locate a store employee who was working when the accident happened and recalls an important piece of information.
We understand that falls are usually upsetting, and it can be difficult to think clearly when you’re in pain or otherwise dealing with your injuries. But if possible, we recommend getting the names of any bystanders present after your accident in case we need to talk with them later.
It’s also essential to seek prompt medical attention, even if you think your injuries are mild. Many people are surprised to find they feel worse the next day or a few days later or that their pain doesn’t resolve on its own.
The sooner you see a healthcare provider, the sooner you can get treatment and rule out any serious injuries (like a TBI or a head injury that requires immediate treatment). You’ll also establish a record of your injuries, which is helpful if you don’t heal independently and need further care.
Finally, contact a slip and fall lawyer to understand your options if your injuries become expensive or create more challenges for you later.
As discussed earlier, worker’s compensation almost always covers these accidents. The good news is that worker’s compensation does not require you to prove negligence, only that you were at work when you were injured.
Worker’s compensation is designed to be a simple system allowing employees to get medical care for work-related injuries without the time and stress of a lawsuit.
The bad news is that your employer’s insurance company may still fight or reject your claim. While they can’t deny your claim because you were at fault, they can deny it for a number of other reasons.
For example, they might claim you weren’t really injured at work, that your injuries weren’t that bad, or that you injured yourself on purpose. These situations are frustrating, but your slip-and-fall lawyer will fight for your right to compensation under the Worker’s Comp system.
We’ll also evaluate your case to determine if you have grounds for a third-party claim against another party (not your employer) whose negligence caused your accident.

To quickly resolve matters following an accident, insurance companies will offer you less than you deserve in compensation for your injuries. Many victims feel pressured to accept these offers as the bills begin to pile up, but that is rarely a good idea. The insurance company is looking to protect its bottom line; and will offer injured victims less than they deserve. An experienced personal injury attorney understands how to negotiate with the insurance company and can look out for your best interests by getting you the compensation you deserve after an injury. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, it is important to avoid negotiating or providing recorded statements to the insurance company without first seeking help from a qualified personal injury attorney.
