Slip and fall accidents can be deadly – but you wouldn’t know it from popular culture. When people slip and fall on television, it typically gets a lot of laughs. But in reality, such accidents often lead to broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, and other serious injuries. Our Utah slip and fall attorneys understand this better than most, and we want you to know that we are here to answer your questions about a potential legal case.
Why You Should Talk to Our Utah Slip and Fall Attorneys
Depending on your situation, you may be having a hard time getting people to take your accident seriously. It can be particularly difficult to get those responsible for the accident to listen to you. Employers can push back against you. And business owners – if you fell on the property of a business – can be even less likely to treat you right.
If you are unsatisfied with the responses concerning your slip and fall accident, you are not alone. We encourage you to speak to our Utah slip and fall attorneys. Here’s why:
1. Your injuries might be worse than you realize.
Falling from standing or walking can cause serious damage to your body. Many people who slip and fall experience pain, loss of mobility, confusion, and other symptoms months or even years later. We urge you to get medical care and consider that you could be dealing with injuries for a long time.
If your injuries are significant, they can make it difficult to work and live a normal life. If the fall resulted from another’s negligence – like a business not marking a wet floor – you have the right to insist that they compensate you for what happened. We can help you with that process.
Depending on how bad your injuries wind up being, you might find yourself feeling grateful that you spoke to a lawyer and got the compensation you deserved.
2. Insurance companies tend to pay as little as possible.
If you tell an employer or business owner that you were hurt on their premises, it will typically be the insurance company that speaks to you next. Insurers, unfortunately, are likely to offer you as little money as they can get away with.
Our attorneys can negotiate on your behalf with the insurance company. We can lay out the facts and insist that you get properly compensated.
3. We can take care of the details while you rest and recover.
Talking to insurance companies, arguing with business owners, and all the other tasks ahead of you are going to be challenging. Let us do the heavy lifting. If we represent you, that means we take care of all the details. We can give you the time you need to rest and recover from your injuries.
