Slipping and falling is often embarrassing. Our initial reaction, even if seriously injured, is to jump up, keep our head down, and leave the scene without making eye-contact with anyone. But it's important to know that if you slip and fall because of the property owner's negligence, you may be entitled to recover damages.
Did you know that falls are a leading cause of injury and death? If you've been injured in a slip and fall accident, you're probably experiencing pain and dealing with an injury. These injuries can wrack up expensive medical bills and the cost of rehab. And, then there's a possible loss of income to deal with if you're unable to work due to the injury. Of course, this can be tough financially.
These are just a few reasons why it's crucial to seek counsel after a slip and fall injury, and seeking compensation is essential. At Kate Franke Law, we are ready to help you after your incident. Our slip and fall attorneys have experience handling these liability cases and will manage the situation with the very best care.
A slip and fall lawyer will take the stress of handling a possible lawsuit (and all the paperwork that comes with it) away from you. Instead, we’d like you to take the time to focus on getting healthy and well. And, our knowledge of the procedures will put you in the best position for receiving compensation:
Slip and Fall Injuries
If you get injured on someone else's property, you may be able to hold them responsible for your injuries, whether you're inside or outside their property. These types of accidents happen for many reasons; here are just a few leading causes:
If you are injured from a slip and fall at work, you may be able to collect workers' compensation benefits. As a trade-off for relinquishing your right to sue your employer, you can receive benefits to cover your medical bills, lost wages, and disability. And, this will happen no matter whose fault the accident was.
Although this is great, there is also a limit to the number of benefits you can claim from workers' compensation and for how long. Along with a possible pre-approved medical network that you have to use, more often than not, it's reported that insurers will try and drive down the value of your claim.
This is why it's vital to chat with us. First, your slip and fall attorney is familiar with the complicated system of workers' compensation and will be able to know how best to handle your claim.
Who is Liable For my Injuries?
Property owners must keep their property in a safe condition for those that enter, and if they don’t, they may be held responsible for any injuries from a slip and fall. Of course, this will depend on why you were on their property.
