Slip and Fall Accidents
If you have been hospitalized from a slip and fall injury and someone else is to blame, you have the right to compensation.
Although it may seem simple to file the claim yourself if you have fallen on someone else’s property, unfortunately that is just not the case. After the involvement of an insurance company, it is the insurance companies job to limit you to the amount you will receive. An attorney will ensure your case is handled to its severity and will be able to attack all avenues for compensation.
