Slip-And-Fall FAQs

Injuries can happen anywhere but they often lead to high medical costs and long periods of treatment. Here are common questions people have after being injured in a slip and fall accident:

Q: Is someone at fault for my injuries?

A: While some slips are caused by clumsiness or distraction, some of them can be attributed to conditions or hazards on a piece of property. For example, the owner of a store might be liable if you slipped on a wet floor that had no "wet floor" sign but that the owner reasonably should have known about.

Q: Do I have a valid claim?

A: You will need to talk to an attorney to determine this. Slip and fall cases are highly dependent on the specific circumstances of the fall. At Haskell & Zimmerman, we are honest with our clients about the validity of their cases and what we can do to help them. We will devote personal attention to determining what we are likely able to recover for you.

Q: What would compensation cover?

A: Like many other personal injury cases, compensation is meant to ease the financial burdens of your injuries. This means you can be compensated for:

  • Medical bills
  • Future medical treatment
  • Wages lost from missed work time
  • Future wages lost from disabling condition

Sometimes you can also be awarded damages for the pain and suffering you endured. If you have been hurt in a slip and fall, we will fight for the maximum compensation you can receive.
