Why should you get a lawyer after a slip and fall injury?

by Staff Blogger | July 4th, 2018

Losing your balance or tripping over something in your path usually causes only minor injuries, but for some people, the consequences of slip and fall injuries can be devastating.

At Ponce Law, our Nashville premises liability lawyers have helped many people who were hurt when they fell in public or private spaces. We’ve seen the devastation of slip and fall injuries firsthand, and we know that some victims may experience permanent pain, reduced mobility, and even paralysis.

Premises liability laws require that property owners and managers keep their premises safe for everyone, but the definitions of “safe” and the requirements that they must follow can sometimes be subjective—especially when insurance companies are involved.

It’s common for insurance companies to play hardball when victims pursue compensation, and they may build strong cases of their own to reduce or deny victims’ claims.

After a slip and fall injury, a lawyer may be able to help you by:

  1. Proving the property owner or manager was negligent—Whether the property owner or manager was aware of the potential dangers or should have been aware of them, we know how to find and present evidence that conclusively proves their negligence led to your injuries.
  2. Proving your injuries were caused by your slip and fall—Insurance companies are often skeptical of injury claims, and they often deny that injuries are linked to specific accidents. We can use your medical records and even expert testimony to leave no doubt about the origin of your injuries.
