Slip-And-Fall Injury Victims Deserve Full, Fair Compensation

The hard impact from a slip and fall can leave you incapacitated for an extended period of time or worse. The frustration of losing wages and being out of work can be compounded by the costly medical bills you face.

That's why it's important to work with an experienced personal injury lawyer who can bring a compelling slip-and-fall injury lawsuit on your behalf. At Gatlin Voelker, PLLC, our attorneys have more than 50 years of combined experience helping clients obtain the compensation they deserve.

Why You Should Pursue A Slip-And-Fall Injury Lawsuit

It's important to understand that property owners have a duty to keep their premises reasonably safe. Slippery floors, debris in stairwells, poor lighting, unsecured rugs and other hazards constitute a breach of that duty. When a property owner ignores or doesn't secure slip-and-fall hazards in a timely manner, the resulting injuries are not accidents — they're the result of negligence.

Slip-and-fall injuries are often entirely preventable if property owners had only maintained their property in a safe condition. Injuries that stem from slip-and-fall accidents can be wide-ranging and can include:

  • Soft tissue injuries: Although not easily detectable, soft tissue damage can manifest several days after a hard fall. These injuries can lead to chronic pain and require long-term treatment.
  • Head trauma: Experts are just beginning to understand the long-term implications of head injuries and concussions. An experienced slip-and-fall attorney can provide insight into the potential rehabilitation costs.
  • Broken bones: Being laid up in a cast can cost you time out of work. But broken bones can also require additional surgeries when the healing process doesn't go well. Do not take a quick settlement, speak with a personal injury attorney for guidance.
  • Spinal cord injuries: Ranked among the worst slip-and-fall injuries, a damaged spinal cord can leave you or a loved one with a permanent disability.
