Slip & Fall Accidents
Fort Myers Slip and Fall Accident Injury Attorney
Anyone can trip, or slip and fall. If such a fall occurs when you are lawfully on another’s property, the property owner may be held liable for your medical expenses and other damages. Slip and fall injuries can be very serious, and their full extent may not be immediately known. Contact experienced personal injury attorney Thomas C. Chase if you believe you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
Details and Witnesses Can Be Critical in a Slip and Fall Case
There are several important steps to take as soon as possible after you slip and fall, incurring injuries that may be significant. Wherever the accident occurs — at a store or in a shopping mall, in an apartment building or in a neighbor’s yard, for example — you should:
- Notify the property owner, manager or other responsible party, completing an incident report form if available – demand a copy of the report at the time it is made!
- Ask cordially for the names and phone numbers of any witnesses
- Commit to memory as many detailed observations about the property and circumstances of your fall as you can
- Promptly contact a personal injury attorney willing to quickly examine the property and consult with you about your slip and fall accident
A Lawyer Who Knows Premises Liability and Effective Legal Strategies
Tom Chase has successfully represented many slip and fall and trip and fall victims in Southwest Florida. He applies his extensive insurance knowledge as well as an absolute commitment to thorough investigation in driving toward fair compensation for your injuries. The responsiveness of Tom and his staff is critical in documenting evidence before it is altered in an effort to avoid premises liability.
It is common for insurance companies to act quickly, offering a small settlement before the full extent of your injuries becomes apparent — or before you seek the advice of a skilled personal injury attorney. Either the property owner or insurance company may be adamant in claiming the slip and fall accident was your fault, in some cases denying that any unsafe conditions such as wet floors, protruding objects or other problems existed.
