Trusted Slip and Fall Attorney

Slip and fall cases often contain a variety of complicated elements and should never be handled without a knowledgeable personal injury attorney. Russell can guide you through the entire legal process, including the legal standards that apply to certain types of properties and collecting essential evidence that shows the accident was a result of negligence.

To help you recover damages for your medical bills and lost wages, there are actions you can take to help build a successful slip/trip and fall case:

  • Obtain photographs of where the accident occurred and any elements that you believe may have caused the incident.
  • Get statements and contact information from witnesses.
  • Save physical evidence that may be helpful to your case.
  • Once we are able to review all of the evidence and statements, we can begin to piece together your case.

Slip/Trip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents can occur on private or public property, including houses, apartment buildings, construction sites, restaurants, supermarkets, and even swimming pool facilities. These types of accidents can be caused by a number of negligent acts, including:

  • Excess accumulations of water, such as spilled liquids that have been left for long periods of time
  • Food and other foreign substances that have not been properly cleaned or removed
  • Poor lighting that can make it difficult or even impossible to see
  • Stairs that are in bad or deteriorating condition, as well as those that don’t have handrails
  • Poorly aligned sidewalks and other uneven surfaces

Although the average trip, slip, or fall may not be dangerous, some instances can result in serious or life-changing injuries, such as bruises, lacerations, and broken bones to severe spinal and neck injuries. Shoulder dislocations, extensive knee damage, and traumatic brain injuries may also occur. Your or your loved one shouldn't be burdened with medical bills on top of injuries caused by someone else's negligence.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a slip and fall accident, reach out to an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible. Russell is dedicated to working alongside you and being readily available through calls, emails, and in-person meetings. With a proven track record for recovering damages for past clients, Russell and the RAWLaw team look forward to learning more about your case.
