A Lawrenceville Slip and Fall Accident Attorney Can Manage Your Case

Slip and fall accidents are extremely common and can happen anywhere. A serious incident can be life-changing.

Anyone can endure a slip and fall accident, but young children, the elderly, and workers on the job are at an especially high risk. Every year, on average, over 2 million children under 14 are treated for fall-related injuries, over 32,000 elders succumb to fatal injuries from a slip-and-fall, and over 200,000 employees have serious enough injuries to require time off from work.

A Lawrenceville slip and fall attorney can help you manage the legal process following an accident. Juggling your physical and financial recovery can be a difficult task to manage alone and could lead to neglecting important areas of both.

A premise liability case often involves commercial liability insurance coverage, meaning that the insurer is representing a corporation or entity, not just one person. In these cases, having the experience, knowledge, and resources of an attorney can help your claim progress with fewer obstacles.

Insurers count on unrepresented claimants to have a limited understanding of the litigation process or how to value a claim, and they may use that advantage to undervalue your accident. A lawyer can be your ally through the recovery journey, overseeing each step of your claim to ensure your best interests are accounted for while helping you determine the appropriate amount of damages to seek.

Ali Awad, the CEO Lawyer, can offer comprehensive case management that includes, but is not limited to, the following services:

  • Organizing all collected documentation: After any type of accident, you’ll be left with a mountain of paperwork to sort through. Searching through reports, statements, notices, and informative packets — as well as completing them — can be tedious and time-consuming at the very least. An attorney can help you sort through paperwork and ensure that essential information doesn’t get lost in the mix.
  • Managing communication with all outside parties: To move the process of a claim forward, the victim will need to communicate with outside parties like insurers. Instead of wasting your own precious time recounting the same statement and hearing the same questions many times over, let an attorney speak on your behalf.
  • Helping you understand the laws, regulations, and best practices around your case: Every state has unique statutes on personal injury and even insurance policy value. A personal injury attorney can help you understand what laws and state regulations apply to your unique situation. In many cases, there may be more than one way to proceed with your fight for a compensatory settlement after an accident, so your attorney will also consult with you about your options and guide you in the most beneficial direction.
  • Investigating your accident, including a thorough evaluation of claims of negligence: Once you’ve collected all of the data and evidence that you have from your accident, your attorney will deep-dive into the information, searching for key details that can impact your claim to a recovery settlement. Through past experience, an attorney can catch small points that a claimant is likely to miss on their own
  • Negotiating on your behalf: For most claimants, proposing a final settlement number can feel like an unnerving experience. Your recovery settlement is made up of various types of damage, from medical bills to lost wages and, in some cases, damages like emotional trauma. An attorney can put together a comprehensive settlement figure that covers all of your incurred damages and accounts for future expenses you may be burdened with as a result of the accident. Once your attorney has determined a figure, they will present and fight for its value with the insurer.

Who Is Liable for My Slip and Fall Damages?

Most slip and fall cases hinge on the question of negligence, meaning that the victim must identify the party whose lapse in their duty of care led to the dangerous condition and, thereby, their injury.

Most commonly, liability is held by the property owner, who is responsible for maintaining the premises and ensuring that hazards are either removed or clearly marked to avoid injury. In some cases, though, the occupants of the property — such as a business tenant in a retail space — held responsibility for the condition that led to the accident.

Liability is frequently determined by who was tasked with the reasonable care of a specific aspect of the property. Landlords and other property owners are generally responsible for the internal structure of the building and external features like parking lots or drainage culverts.

Occupants are responsible for the day-to-day state of the property, including the care of any inventory or furniture brought into the property, as well as for informing building owners when there is a hazard that should be addressed.

Visitors to the property are responsible for their own care but cannot possibly see or predict every hazard. They entrust owners and tenants to make the premises reasonably safe, especially in public common areas and spaces like shopping aisles where they are invited to go.

Common Injuries in a Slip and Fall Accident

Many types of injuries can result from a slip-and-fall accident, but some are more frequently reported and treated. A serious incident can lead to life-long disabilities or even fatal injuries.

In 2020, nearly 7 million people were seen in emergency rooms for slip-and-fall-related accidents. It is essential that any slip-and-fall victim receives a full medical evaluation, even if they aren’t sure if they were hurt, in order to rule out latent injuries or something like a concussion.

For the sake of your premise liability claim, get medical attention sooner rather than later. Waiting to see a doctor can worsen your condition while leaving room for the other involved party to argue that they cannot be responsible for the full extent of your injuries because you neglected care.

Some of the most commonly seen slip-and-fall-related injuries include:

  • Head injuries and traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Neck injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Ankle and knee injuries
  • Wrist, elbow, and shoulder injuries

Common Types of Slip and Fall Accidents

A property owner has a duty of care to all guests and patrons, which marks the need for signs such as those. Hazards on the floor are hard to see because our focus is generally eye-level.

Many accidents are caused by a lack of warning about the danger, leaving all who enter at risk of facing an injury. There are many types of slip and fall accidents, but many of the frequently seen episodes involve:

  • Wet or slippery floors: This is often caused by spills, leaky pipes, intruding rain or snow, fresh floor waxing/cleaning, or naturally slippery surfaces like glass and polished stone.
  • Uneven or unstable walkways: It is a property owner’s duty to keep all walkways safe from hazards like broken tile, uneven brick, or holes in the ground.
  • Cluttered or poorly lit halls: A mess obstructing the way and limited light interfering with your sight can be dangerous variables that lead to a slip-and-fall accident.
  • Dangerous staircases or ramps: Uneven stairs, loose boards, and unmaintained ramps can all be dangerous to interact with, even with extreme caution.

A slip and fall can happen anywhere, but some of the most common places to endure an incident include:

  • Restaurants
  • Grocery stores
  • Convenience stores
  • Department stores
  • Offices
  • Parking lots and sidewalks
  • Stadiums and arenas
  • Construction sites
  • Publicly owned and maintained spaces, like parks

Help Negotiating with Insurance Carriers

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.
