If you fell in a retail store, is there a surveillance video available?
Approximately 8.9 million visits to U.S. emergency rooms every year result from slips and falls.
Slipping, tripping, falling and then sustaining an injury on somebody else’s premises is not just “one of those things”. In many situations, it can result directly from the negligence of the landowner or a third party. The injuries it can lead to range from serious physical trauma to traumatic brain injury, or even fatality.
In legal terms, it is important to understand whether the slip, trip and fall is arguably the result of negligence or hazardous conditions that were known or should have been known about at the time. Quick action in consulting a lawyer as soon after the injury as is possible will help to confirm the facts. If your physical safety was compromised by a hazardous situation, we will press the responsible party vigorously for appropriate compensation.

We Can Help You Answer:
What if I don’t know what caused me to slip, trip or fall?
This can prove troublesome. A full and complete investigation of the area of your fall will need to be completed in order to determine if you have a case.
What should I do immediately after falling?
Report what happened immediately to someone at the store, and if possible, write down the name of everyone you told what happened.
