Should I Contact A Personal Injury Lawyer After A Slip And Fall?

Everyone knows the dangers that come with winter precipitation. Failure to properly clear walkways after sleet and snow have fallen can lead to them icing over. Walking across these areas becomes extremely hazardous as a result. If you suffered a slip or fall and sustained an injury due to a property owner’s negligence, be sure to contact our team at Birzon and Associates. Our personal injury lawyer in Nassau County will determine if legal action can be taken, and help recoup the damages you are owed from the guilty party.

 

Why You Should Contact Our Personal Injury Lawyer In Nassau County

Recovering from injuries can be very expensive and time-consuming.  Why should you be the one paying the price if the injury only occurred due to someone else’s negligence?  Do not let the actions of a guilty party cause detriment to your quality of life. Put your faith in the hands of our personal injury lawyer in Nassau County and get the compensation you deserve.

 

What Makes A Defendant Liable 

To determine if you should file a lawsuit, we need to look at the defendant can be held liable for slips and falls.  If you believe either of the two situations applies to you, our personal injury lawyer in Nassau County should be contacted immediately:

  1. The hazardous condition should have been recognized and removed by the property owner (or an employee/agent of the property owner) but was not done.  It will need to be determined if a reasonable person should have recognized the issue, or if they had ample time to correct it but chose not to.
  2. The hazardous condition was caused by the defendant.  It was foreseeable that certain actions of the defendant would cause future slips and falls.

 

Proving The Negligence and Liability Of The Defendant

The next step in building a case is to prove that there was negligence expressed by the defendant that caused your slip and fall.  By explaining your fall to our personal injury lawyer in Nassau County, we’ll have a better understanding of if we can prove any of the following:

  1. The hazard was around long enough that a reasonable defendant should have taken care of it.
  2. Conditions leading to the fall could have been avoided by the defendant taking preventative methods.
  3. There are no reasonable justifications for the hazard to have been created.        

 

You Did Not Cause The Incident Yourself

The final factor in a situation like this is proving you did not cause the incident yourself, which is why our injury lawyer in Nassau County needs to be contacted. We’ll be able to look at all aspects of your story, and paint a compelling picture that shows: 

  1. You were not engaging in any activities that prevented you from seeing the hazard.
  2. You had lawful access to the area where the slip and fall occurred.
  3.  There were no safety measures implemented by the defendant to warn about the hazardous area that you ignored.

Testimonials
  • "“I was recently in a very bad motorcycle accident, I was recommended to Barrie from a close friends mother and am very glad I was. Since the day of my call to Barrie she was committed to helping me in every aspect of the process, and any question that me or my entire family had. She got me the first part of my settlement very fast, and when the insurance companies tried to fight the second part she was relentless on getting me what I was needed. Furthermore she was successful on me getting the entire settlement and kept me up to date the entire time the process went on. She is self-less, attentive, easy to communicate with, easy to get in contact with, and was respectfully aggressive to get what I the client needed. I will highly recommend her to anyone that needs a lawyer. I am very grateful for her.”"  -Jesse
