Experienced New Jersey Slip And Fall Attorneys On Your Side
Have you been injured in a slip and fall accident? If so, it can be hard to prove that a property owner was responsible for your injury. It’s not like a car accident where guilt is usually obvious. And even if it is, property owners aren’t likely to admit liability unless you retain an attorney.
It’s often difficult to get the facts straight when you’ve suffered a slip and fall. These accidents can happen so quickly; one moment you’re going about your business, the next you’re lying there on the ground, in terrible pain, maybe even unable to get up.
That’s where CourtLaw comes in. We can give you the experienced representation you need when you’ve been injured in a slip and fall accident. Get the compensation you deserve to pay your medical bills and to make up for lost wages, so you can get on with your life.
During your free consultation, our slip and fall attorneys will ask you a number of questions designed to determine whether you have a case. You’ll be asked to give the details of your fall. Did you slip or trip? Was your fall caused by a puddle of liquid or something else? Did you miss a step going up or down stairs? Did you trip over something carelessly left behind?
How We Help After A Slip And Fall
All of these questions can help our lawyers begin to determine liability in your case, by figuring out the specifics of your slip and fall accident. We’ll also examine the scene of the accident to investigate the possibility of fault on the part of the property owner. We’ll help you document your lost income through financial records, including pay stubs, other employer records, and tax forms.
Our attorneys will compile a record of treatments and medical bills and, if necessary, we’ll ask your doctor for additional documentation illustrating the relationship between your accident and your injuries. Once we have all of this documentation in place, we’ll be able to bring your litigation to court, and get the funds you need to pay your bills and recover lost wages.
How You Can Help After A Slip and Fall
You can help make your case stronger by doing the following:
- Record everything you see after a slip and fall. Take pictures of the area and pay attention to any contributing factors such as broken railings, cracked pavement and liquid on the floor. Preserving evidence this way is important, as a property owner could correct defective conditions after the accident, making it appear as though everything was fine.
- Get the contact information for everyone who witnessed your slip and fall.
- Document your injuries. Take pictures of clothing, bruises and anything else that would show where you were injured.
- Follow your doctor’s treatment orders.
- Get copies of any medical or other treatment records.
- Record witness statements. However, do not talk to them by yourself again. Let your lawyer talk for you.
- Call an attorney from CourtLaw to handle your slip and fall case.
