When a property owner is negligent in maintaining a safe walkway, slip and falls occur. A slip and fall can have devastating consequences. It can cause serious head injuries, hip injuries, broken bones, and more. You may have incurred incredibly high medical bills, lost wages, persistent pain, and permanent disabilities. You should not have to pay because of someone else’s negligence. An experienced personal injury attorney can act as a powerful legal advocate and fight for the recovery you are entitled to.
Why Hire a Personal Injury Attorney?
Proving negligence can be difficult unless you have the help of an experienced slip and fall attorney. Your attorney will investigate to see if there were known structural defects, such as uneven steps, potholes, loose handrails, or code violations. Your personal injury attorney will do extensive research to prove that the defendant created or knew about the hazard prior to your accident. The insurance companies will always try to take advantage of an unrepresented party. Assert your rights and hire Joel M. Vecchio today to get the compensation you are entitled to.
Slipped? Here’s What to Do
If you have recently been injured in a slip and fall accident, it is important that you take the proper steps to collect your damages. Do the following:
- Be checked thoroughly by a medical professional as soon as possible. This will help prove that your injuries are directly caused by your fall, rather than some subsequent accident.
- Do not talk to the other party’s insurance company or attorney until you have hired your own.
- Save all important documentation and place it in a safe place.
- Schedule a consultation with an experienced slip and fall attorney in your area.
