        Understanding Slip and Fall Cases 

        Here is a general breakdown of slip and fall case examples to give you a better understanding of what you should expect if you file a slip and fall case with our Virginia slip and fall lawyers:

        One example might be someone who was walking their dog when they reached their neighbor’s sidewalk and tripped over broken concrete. In the past, this victim had told their neighbor several times that she was uneasy walking over the unsteady ground there and hoped they would fix the hazard. She suffered a broken wrist in the fall. She had to miss time at her job which was not paid time off and had to have a surgery on her broken wrist.

        Another example might be someone at the grocery store who turned the corner and unexpectedly slipped in spilled sauce on the ground that didn’t have a hazard sign and hadn’t been cleaned up. They found out later on that the spill had been there for over an hour without management putting up a hazard sign or cleaning it up. The broken elbow that this person suffered was because of the negligence of the store manager.

        It is our job as your Virginia slip and fall lawyers to determine who the liable party is in your case. From there, we will file the case against them and demand justice from their insurance company to cover all of your damages and injuries. We don’t get up until we see a settlement award that is full and fair and if we can’t come to an agreement that gives you justice, we can go to trial if need be.

        Damages You Can Recover

        Slip and fall cases like most any personal injury case involves two types of damages that you will receive in your compensation award. These are economic damages and non-economic damages.

        Economic damages are things such as surgery bills, ER visits, physical therapy costs, medication, ambulance rides, any travel related to your injuries, and so on. You also can receive lost wages if you had to miss time at work and went unpaid due to your injuries in your slip and fall case. Our Virginia slip and fall lawyers will see to it that your compensation award accurately represents these damages.

        Non-economic damages are a little bit more subjective because you don’t get a bill for your pain and suffering. There is no set cost for a loss of quality of life. Non-economic damages extend to mental health issues related to your accident like insomnia or anxiety. It also can reflect how your life has changed for the worse. An example of that would be no longer being able to take your dog for a walk if you fell and broke a hip in a slip and fall accident.

        It is our job to hold the insurance company responsible for all of your damages and entries and give them no reason to keep justice away from you.

        What to Do for a Successful Slip and Fall Claim

        The very most important thing that you can do for yourself after your slip and fall is to get immediate medical attention. We know that sometimes you have other priorities in your life that you need to attend to before you get to the doctor but please know that the success of your case and your well-being rely on you getting urgent treatment for injuries that could worsen into huge problems.

        Especially in Virginia where you can have your case thrown out even if you are 1% at fault for the accident, we need to be extra careful about making mistakes. Waiting to receive medical care for a slip and fall injury is a huge mistake. If you have an injury such as a broken bone and you wait several days to go to the emergency room, then the insurance company might say that you lied about where you got your injuries. That would allow them to throw your case out altogether. We do not want that for you, so you need to prioritize your health.

        Also, in order for us to understand what the true value of your case should be, we need to know when you are expected to be better and what it is going to take to get you there. This is known as your maximum medical recovery. Sometimes, your maximum medical recovery means that you’re always going to have a loss of function in your hands because of nerve damage. Sometimes, it means that you’re expected to make a full recovery in a month. We will only know this, however, once we have a hold of your medical records. This helps us make a determination about what your compensation award should look like in relation to the damages that you have suffered.

        We can also use your medical records as evidence against the liable party and we can show it to the insurance company to show them exactly how badly you were hurt because of their insured’s negligence.

        Do not under any circumstances at this point in your insurance investigation give the insurance company that represents the liable party a recorded statement regarding your accident. They have tricks up their sleeves to get you to say something that can allow them to pin the blame on you. If they can pin the blame on you, they can throw away your case because of Virginia’s laws regarding fault. You are not legally under any obligation to give them a recorded statement about your slip and fall accident. You should let your Virginia slip and fall lawyers handle communication with them.

        The sooner you speak to us during your free, first consultation the better off your case will be. We are here to take your call as soon as possible to set up a consultation for you. If you want justice, we can help you get there and we will fight tirelessly to provide you with results that are fair.

        Should I Bring a Claim?

        If you have some hang-ups about whether or not you should file a claim, we understand that it might be due to some common misconceptions about slip and falls. The first thing that you might be worried about is the expensive fee for a slip and fall lawyer. It’s not true that slip and fall lawyers cost you a lot of money. In fact, your lawyers don’t get a dime from you unless they win your case and even then, it’s not an out-of-pocket expense. Their payments come from a portion of the compensation award.

        Another common misconception about slip and falls, especially ones that happen on property of a friend, is that you’re going to be suing your friend for your damages and injuries. While they are going to be listed as the liable party in your accident, their insurance company will actually cover all of your damages. Your friend is not going to pay out of pocket for your compensation award. The insurance company is going to cover your lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering damages. 

        Our Virginia slip and fall lawyers also want you to understand that when you take on a case like this you don’t have to worry about how it’s going to work and what you’re going to do to make it successful. That’s our job. We stay up-to-date on the law and the challenges that these cases face. It is your job to recover and heal. We don’t want the fear of a lawsuit to stop you from seeking justice. We take all the stress off your plate in regards to your case.
