Slip and Fall Lawyer
Slip and Fall Injuries are Serious Legal Cases
A slip and fall accident can cause injuries as minor as a simple bruise or a scraped knee. Some slip and fall injuries, however, can be quite serious, such as a broken bone, a fractured hip, or as debilitating as a severed spinal cord. Such injuries can leave victims grappling with lifelong, chronic health issues and buried beneath a mountain of unpaid medical bills.
Victims of slip and fall accidents who suffer serious injuries are often in need of extensive rehabilitation, physical therapy, and even surgery in some instances. A bad enough slip and fall accident might even cause a traumatic brain injury (TBI) that could one day prove to be fatal. If you’ve been injured in a slip and fall incident, you shouldn’t wait to seek out medical attention as soon as you are physically able. Don’t make the mistake of thinking you can simply walk off such injuries. You should strongly consider being examined by a medical professional who has a history of treating such accidents and the injuries they so often produce.
Nor should you have to navigate the personal injury legal system alone. Only an experienced slip and fall accident attorney can help you recover all that you are owed according to Wyoming law. And no other law firm can represent your best interests that the attorneys with the Wyoming Advocates. We know how to help you obtain the maximum settlement for your slip and fall case.
How an Advocate Attorney Can Help You
The most effective way to win your personal injury claim against the liable party and their insurance provider is to hire an experienced slip and fall accident attorney with the Wyoming Advocates. If your accident occurred because of a slick floor at a grocery store, then the insurance company of the supermarket might be found responsible for any injuries or losses you suffered. Without proper legal representation, however, the team of high-priced lawyers employed by the insurance company will likely overwhelm you and your resources. 99% of slip and fall victims who attempt to go it alone end up with less money than they would if they hired a professional attorney to represent them.
One of the most difficult aspects of successfully pursuing a slip and fall injury case is establishing who the liable party is for the injuries and losses you suffered. For example, take a slip and fall injury that took place on an iced-over sidewalk. If the sidewalk was in front of, per say, a privately-owned house, then the homeowner could be held legally liable for the damages since many cities now require homeowners to either salt or shovel sidewalks adjacent to properties. Liability laws can be arcane and tricky to someone who isn’t familiar with personal injury law in Wyoming.
In most cases, slip and fall injuries occur because a property owner does not properly care for their property or a business owner did not take the required measures to protect their patrons. Slip and fall injuries can be serious, causing long-term injuries and lasting financial losses for victims. If you’ve been injured in a slip and fall accident, you could very well find yourselves with thousands in debt and unable to return to work.
