A SLIP & FALL ACCIDENT IS NO LAUGHING MATTER . . .

DO YOU NEED A SLIP AND FALL LAWYER?

. . . well, maybe sometimes it is. This video was posted on FaceBook by a friend of mine and I thought it was hilarious:

Over the years I have handled my fair share of cases as a slip and fall lawyer, and I have seen some very significant injuries occur because of a slip and fall. I'm always amazed at the severity of injury that can occur from just a ground-level fall. Last year we resolved a case for a client where he slipped and fell on an icy sidewalk. In that case, the property owner had left the sprinklers on over night - at the end of November. The next morning was cold, sunny, and dry (there hadn't been any snow or rain for many days). Our client was totally unsuspecting when he slipped and fell. He sustained a serious knee injury which required hospitalization and two surgeries. He was very pleased with the outcome as we were able to settle his case for $262,000.00. We were able to make sure all of his medical bills were paid from the settlement and he was able to be compensated for his life-changing injury.

Liability can be difficult to prove in a slip and fall case. It is important to get contact information of any witnesses and to document the incident by taking pictures if possible. In addition, if the slip and fall occurs inside a retail store, it's important to report the slip and fall to management and fill out an incident report and retain a copy of the report for your own records. If you have been injured because of a slip and fall accident, give us a call at Handy & Handy and we would be happy to discuss your individual case.
