Slip and Fall Injuries Can Be Serious

Although slip and fall injuries can often be trivialized, they can frequently leave significant and lasting damage. A slip and fall accident leading to chronic health problems, mountains of medical bills, and debilitating injuries requiring rehab, physical therapy, or surgery, can require assistance from an experienced Bellingham slip and fall lawyer.

No one should have to navigate the legal system alone. You need an experienced Advocate to represent your best interests and to help you receive fair compensation for any injuries sustained in your fall.

If you have been seriously hurt in a slip and fall accident, you should seek out medical attention immediately. It’s always better to be safe than sorry when it comes to such injuries. Once you’ve taken care of your immediate medical needs, you should contact an Advocate for a free consultation.

The Bellingham Slip and Fall Lawyers at The Advocates Can Help

Hiring a skilled slip and fall lawyer is the best way to help you win your claim against the liable party’s insurance company. If your slip and fall injury happened in a business, such as the wet floor of a supermarket, then their insurance policy could be responsible if warning signs were not properly posted. Without a good slip and fall attorney on your side, an insurance company can overwhelm you with their high-priced legal team. Nine out of ten times you will receive less money if you try to settle your case on your own.

The most difficult aspect about slip and fall injury cases is establishing who the responsible party is for the injuries suffered. A slip and fall injury on an icy sidewalk is a good example. If the sidewalk is in front of a private residence, the homeowner could be held responsible because many cities require homeowners to either shovel or salt their sidewalks. Those same laws specifically designate the home or business owner as responsible for any slip and fall injuries caused by untreated sidewalks.

If you don’t know who is liable, our slip and fall accident attorneys will help you figure out who may be responsible for your accident. If the slip and fall injury occurs in a public area, such as a park or on a cracked or broken sidewalk, the city could be found responsible. Such cases, however, are not always so straightforward. For example, if the homeowner failed to notify the city about the cracked sidewalk, the homeowner may still be partially responsible. In many cases, a slip and fall injury happens because a property owner did not properly care for the property, or a business owner did not take the needed steps to protect its customers. A slip and fall injury can cause serious and even life-threatening injuries as well as long-term financial loss. You could end up with thousands of dollars of debt from medical bills and hundreds of hours of lost wages all because of an injury that could have, and often should have, been avoided.
