Recovering From Dangerous Slip-And-Falls
Many people underestimate just how devastating a slip-and-fall injury can be. When even falling from a standing or walking position can be enough to leave you with a lifetime of complications and consequences, you need to be sure you are earning compensation that accurately reflects them.
At Ballard Law LLC, I can help you earn that compensation. My name is Jason Ballard, and I have the experience and skill necessary to guide you through your injury claim and lead you to the results you deserve no matter where your fall happened or what kind of injuries you received.
When Your Fall Qualifies For A Claim
Tripping over your own feet on someone else’s property is not enough to file a claim against the property owner. Certain conditions need to be present for you to be able to file a compensation claim. There needs to be an unsafe condition that caused the fall, such as wet floors or uneven walkways, the owner needs to be aware of the issue and have enough time to either warn others of it or remove the danger, and you need to have tried to avoid the danger if at all possible.
The Consequences Of A Fall
Falls that result in an injury claim often happen in places like grocery stores, gas stations, malls and other busy areas, but it can also happen at someone else’s home. Common causes of these falls include:
- Loose handrails
- Cluttered walkways
- Unattended spills
- Uneven stairs
- Unsecured rugs or carpets
No matter where it happens, these accidents can cause someone to suffer traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, nerve damage, paralysis and even death. My goal as your attorney is to help you secure the settlement that covers all the costs of these and any other consequences of your fall.
