Frequently Asked Questions

Get the Answers You Need

  • Questions

  • What should I do after an accident?

    Answer

    Immediately following an accident, you should seek appropriate medical care and attention from your qualified physician. Even though it may seem like you are okay or uninjured, slip and fall accidents can result in concussions or other serious head, neck, or back injuries that may not display immediate symptoms. See a doctor and note any reported health issues or injuries as a result of your accident.

  • What things can financial compensation cover?

    Answer

    In a personal injury claim, financial compensation can cover a number of things. Primarily, your financial recovery will include things like: lost wages or earning capacity (due to loss in ability to perform work-related tasks), past and future medical bills, rehabilitation costs, emergency medical care (such as ambulance transportation), or other accident-related expenses (such as medication or needing a wheel chair). Other non-economic damages can include pain, suffering, or loss of quality of life.

  • Should I accept the deal my insurance company provided?

    Answer

    You have insurance coverage for a reason: when emergencies hit, you want to know that you are covered. Unfortunately, most insurance company settlements are so pitifully low that most victims are left with additional expenses in the aftermath of an accident. We know that the last thing you want is a courtroom battle, but we can help make sure you receive the full compensation you really deserve.

  • Why do I need a lawyer?

    Answer

    Opposing counsel is going to do everything possible to try to shift the blame on to you. Working with an attorney can help level the playing field: we investigate thoroughly to prove fault or liability. Additionally, our firm makes sure insurance companies don’t try to strong arm you into accepting a low-ball offer. We make sure you are getting the full amount of compensation you are entitled to and then we fight hard to make sure you do not receive anything less than what you rightly deserve.

Common Causes of Slip & Fall Accidents

No one should have to endure pain due to someone else’s negligence or carelessness. Unfortunately, things like slip and fall accidents happen often and on public or private property alike. If you have suffered pain, lost wages, medical expenses, or other types of damages due to a slip and fall accident, we can help hold liable parties accountable for their actions.

  • Wet, Uncleaned, or Waxed Floors
  • Uneven Flooring
  • Defective Sidewalks
  • Loose, Broken Stairwells
  • Inadequate Lighting
  • Elevators & Escalator Accidents

What Do I Need to Prove in My Case?

  • The defendant (property owner) owned, occupied, or leased the property on which the accident occurred.

  • The defendant (property owner) acted outside the scope of reasonable care when managing the property.

  • The plaintiff (victim) suffered significant harm, damage, or injury while on the defendant’s property.

  • The plaintiff’s (victim’s) harm was directly caused by negligence or some sort of breach of care by the defendant.

Our Beaumont firm is here to look into your specific situation. It is our mission to build a strong case on your behalf. To learn how we can help in your slip and fall case, give us a call today!
