The fact is if you slip and bust your ass because of a wet floor, or some other dangerous condition causes you an injury you deserve to be compensated. You didn’t go shopping just to get injured and it could cost you time off work and require months of physical therapy. If you slip and fall or if something falls on you while you're at a business or even in the parking lot of a business call our firm immediately. A business may have an insurance adjuster or an associate call you and offer to pay for your medical bills. Don’t speak to them, anything you say will be used against you later.
Slip and Fall
Slip and fall accident cases, also known as "premises liability" cases, occur when you slip and fall due to dangerous conditions on someone else's property. There are a number of hazardous conditions that may exist on someone's property that can cause you to slip and fall. Faulty handrails, torn or frayed carpet, uneven surfaces, improperly maintained sidewalks or parking lots, and spills may give rise to premises liability cases. In addition, poor lighting conditions may have prevented you from seeing an obvious hazard. If you have fallen while on someone else's property, it is essential that you seek medical attention immediately. You may have hidden injuries that will not show symptoms until days or even weeks after the accident. A visit to your doctor may reduce the likelihood of permanent injury and document your injuries in the event you later file a premises liability lawsuit.
Premises liability injuries can be severe, leaving victims with serious spinal cord injuries or traumatic brain injury that may lower the quality of their lives forever. A premises liability accident may occur anywhere, including:
• Office buildings
• Apartment buildings
• Private residences
• Sidewalks and parking lots
If you have fallen due to a hazardous condition at these or any other premises, you should immediately seek medical attention, report the incident to the property owner, and consult an experienced Memphis premises liability attorney.
