Slip and Fall Accidents
Injuries can happen anywhere and anytime. Visits to private places of business -- restaurants, malls, apartment buildings, or private residences -- can sometimes result in a slip or fall due to improperly maintained equipment or grounds that causes a serious injury, including: broken bones, sprains, strains, and even brain trauma. Likewise, visits to public settings -- museums, government buildings, or state-owned land -- can also result in serious injuries due to negligence of the owners.
The Gregory Law Group has represented many clients over the last 25 years who have been injured in private or public settings, and has helped them to receive substantial settlements in compensation for their injuries.
What You Need To Know
There are many factors that you need to take into consideration when you have been injured by a slip or fall. First, what are your injuries now. However, that is only the beginning of evaluating your damages. Some injuries do not fully manifest themselves for months or even years, and a proper estimate of your injuries must take into account the future, including: the need for future medical care, rehabilitation, decrease in the quality of your life, emotional pain and suffering, and economic loss.
It is critical that your slip or fall be evaluated for all of the above elements so that a settlement can be reached with the responsible party that contemplates your damages now and in the future. The Gregory Law Group can help you to have a comprehensive assessment of your current and future injuries so that any settlement fairly takes all of these damages into account.
Dos and Don'ts
You should speak to an attorney as soon as possible after your slip or fall.
You should file a claim with your insurance company, but preferably after having spoken with an attorney. Insurance companies will usually record any statement you make to them about your claim, and this information can be used to devalue your claim or even negate it altogether.
You should not make a statement to either your insurance company or the responsible party's insurance company unless you have first spoken with an attorney who can guide you in this process.
