Has a simple errand turned into a traumatic trip to the hospital? Frankly, it can be difficult in proving who is at fault in a slip and fall accident. Thousands of people yearly are injured, many seriously from slipping and falling on the floor, stairs or other surfaces that have become slick or dangerous. Indeed even ground that has become uneven to a dangerous degree can lead to severe injuries. To seek damages in court, you will need to show that the owner of the premises or an employee of theirs should have known of the danger, or the owner or an employee of the owner actually caused the dangerous condition. The bottom line is you need an attorney to protect your rights, recoup your medical expenses and get you the compensation you are entitled to.
