What Constitutes a “Trip & Fall” Injury

A serious trip and fall injury can have a devastating impact on a person’s career, social life, and general standard of living. For this reason, it’s critical that you contact a qualified attorney as quickly as possible. The property owner will likely try to dispute your claim by evidencing that you were partially or entirely responsible for the accident and your consequential condition. Our firm can collect evidence, interview witnesses, and litigate on your behalf in court to prove that the property owner failed to provide a reasonable safe environment for guests and passersby.

Common trip and fall injuries include:

  • Head injuries
  • Broken or sprained bones
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Neck or spinal cord injuries
  • Nerve damage
  • Hip fractures
  • Pulled or torn muscles
  • Lacerations

Most commercial property owners have insurance just in case a trip and fall accident occurs. However, insurance providers aren’t in the business of just handing over money. Our skilled litigators can negotiate with the defendant’s insurance company to ensure that you’re awarded a settlement that reflects your legal and financial objectives.
