Injury from Falls

Attorney Smith represents clients who have been injured as the result of an another party’s dangerous or hazardous property conditions. A slip and fall case, also known as “premises liability,” is a claim brought against a party or entity for the negligent design, operation or upkeep of their property. Though a slip and fall may not produce any initial visible sign of injury, it is important that you seek medical attention should there be any aftereffects. Most slip and fall accidents happen in commercial locations but can also occur on private property. The following locations or conditions are often attributed to a slip and fall:

Wet, icy, and/or slippery conditions
Camp grounds
Walkways with broken or uneven pavement/concrete
Elevator/escalator accidents
Inadequate lighting
Falling merchandise
Failure to provide adequate security
Hotels/Motels
Movie theaters
Shopping malls
Amusement Parks
Parking Garages
Grocery stores
Office buildings

Without an attorney, premises liability cases are extremely difficult to prove, and even harder to prevail upon. Many public properties are strongly outfitted with detailed waivers, experienced defense attorneys, and big insurance companies that will all do their best to deny your claim. Hiring an experienced attorney is the first step you can take to ensure that valuable evidence is not lost, proper photographs are obtained, expert witnesses are retained, and resources are provided to you. Without an experienced attorney, you can easily be left with thousands of dollars in unpaid medical bills. It is never a good idea to negotiate with an insurance company without consulting an attorney first. Your initial consultation with attorney Smith is free of charge. Should you decide to retain her services after the initial consultation, she will work on a contingent fee basis. This means that Attorney Smith will only be paid for her services once a recovery on your behalf is obtained.

Chronic Pain Syndrome Can Be Life Changing

Dealing with chronic pain can negatively impact your life in several different ways. As a nurse I understand how hard it can be to live with chronic pain syndrome and how it can negatively impact the quality of your life. If you are living with constant pain it is hard to concentrate on your regular life. Even small things like watching television, putting on your clothes in the morning and enjoying a family dinner can be painful and frustrating.

If you experience chronic pain or have been diagnosed with chronic pain syndrome after a serious injury that was due to someone else’s mistake, disregard for safety or negligence, then you may be eligible for financial compensation. As a nurse attorney I may be able to help you. I have a statewide trial practice focusing on medical negligence and personal injury. If your cause is just, I will put my experience to work for you. My initial consultation is free.
