Pursuing Compensation

In order to pursue a slip and fall claim, our attorneys need to prove that the retail store, small business or homeowner failed to maintain a reasonably safe walking or working environment.

  • Did they know the water had spilled on the floor, and yet do nothing about it?
  • How long was the icy patch on the sidewalk before the accident, and did anyone mention it before you slipped and fell?
  • How well are the premises maintained as a rule?

Preserving Evidence

While you may not feel up to revisiting the accident site, you could ask a friend or family member to take pictures as soon as possible. These pictures are may provide critical support to the insurance company of your slip and fall accident claim. We also review the medical report from your doctor, and consider your prognosis for recovery as we negotiate with the plaintiff's insurance company.
