CALIFORNIA SLIP AND FALL LAWYERS

If you fall and get hurt because of dangerous conditions in your environment – including a store, restaurant or sidewalk – you should strongly consider contacting our California slip and fall lawyers. We will carefully evaluate the facts of your accident and determine whether or not you have a personal injury case. Many people slip on spilled liquids, trip over wires and other obstructions. Others unfortunately fall down due to uneven surfaces and then rush away from the scene, embarrassed and upset.

You can sustain serious injuries from these accidents, meaning you’ll need expensive medical treatment and miss days of work. If the property on which you were injured is insured, their insurance company will attempt to pay out the smallest settlement possible. It is to your benefit to have experienced legal counsel on your side to ensure you’re receiving a proper settlement amount.

Our team of California slip and fall lawyers at The May Firm have the experience and credentials to guide you through the process of reaching a settlement agreement, and we do so at no out-of-pocket cost to you. We’ll be your advocate when dealing with insurance companies and other businesses or entities involved, and we’ll hold them accountable in providing you the compensation you’re owed.

DETERMINING IF YOU HAVE A CASE

Our lawyers will need all the details available about the area and the incident when evaluating your potential case. A slip and fall can be embarrassing, but try to remain level headed and exchange contact information with witnesses if possible. If you have a camera or a smartphone handy, take photos of the place where your accident occurred so the conditions can be documented and used for your case. Sharing evidence like this with our team is critical in establishing fault to get you the help you need.

Don’t be ashamed of seeking legal help after experiencing a slip and fall accident. It is easy to put the blame on yourself, attributing your fall to clumsiness or lack of attention. Health implications and recovery time after a fall may be longer than you think, leading to lost income and a stack of expensive medical bills.

We’ll help determine if the accident you experienced was the result of an unsafe environment and we’ll proceed accordingly.

Don’t hold off on getting medical help after an accident. The most important part of this whole ordeal is your health. Lack of proper documentation opens up plausibility as to whether or not you’re seriously injured by an accident, and insurance companies will use that as leverage against you.

After seeking medical treatment, your next call should be to a California personal injury attorney that specializes in helping victims hold negligent companies and people responsible for the injuries they cause. Call or chat with us to learn what specific documents we need to evaluate your personal injury claim – free of charge.

Filing an Insurance Claim after a Slip and Fall Accident

img

Most businesses or property owners are smart enough to carry liability insurance. This can help protect them cover the cost of injuries they cause due to their reckless or negligent behavior.Unfortunately, insurance companies are businesses whose goal is to pay out the smallest settlement claim possible to those who are injured. Although they represent the property owner, they are first responsible to their shareholders.

The May Firm’s personal injury lawyers are experienced in dealing with these companies and are familiar with the games they play to minimize payout on claims. Representation from our firm ensures these insurance companies are held accountable and greatly increases your chances of getting the appropriate settlement amount to meet your needs.

Even a simple injury can create major disruptions in your normal life. When we create a settlement for you we factor in missed work and emotional suffering on top of medical billing and property damage. We want to be sure your recovery is as stress-fee as possible. Nothing is worse than regaining your health, only to be forced to face mounting medical bills and a gap in personal income.

“We built our firm on the principle that victims deserve an advocate as experienced as the people on the other side of the table.”
