Slip & Fall Lawyers in DC

Victims of serious slip and fall accidents in a store, restaurant, or third-party property can face a lengthy and painful recovery process. Figuring out how to hold the party responsible for the injury accountable for the expensive recovery process is not an easy task without representation from a trusted personal injury firm with experienced DC slip and fall lawyers.

Below is helpful information about the complications that can arise after being injured from a fall or other hazard on someone else’s property and how the experienced legal team at Zukerberg & Halperin helps victims of major accidents across the tri-state area including:

  • Maryland Personal Injuries
  • Virginia Personal Injuries
  • Washington, D.C. Personal Injuries

If your slip and fall injury took place in one of the aforementioned areas, our slip and fall lawyers can help recover against the responsible parties.

Slip And Fall Injury At A Popular Restaurant Or Store

Dealing with serious injuries after a major slip and fall accident is difficult enough without the additional stress of how you can recover compensation from the party responsible for your injuries.

This is especially true if you or a loved one sustained an accident in a well-known store or restaurant, such as a Starbucks, McDonald’s, Wal-Mart, Target or any other popular establishment.

Recovering Against A Large Corporation For Injuries 

If your slip and fall took place at an established location, keep in mind the following about dealing with third-party teams of attorneys…

  • Large corporations are not quick to compensate victims of a slip and fall injury for what they deserve.
  • They will spare no expense in preparing to fight expensive claims.
  • Large property management companies, retail stores, restaurants and government properties typically staff large teams of attorneys whose job it is to prevent you from getting the money you deserve in a slip and fall settlement.
  • That is why it is incredibly important to have top DC slip and fall lawyers on your case.

A proven team of attorneys looking out for your best chances of recovering damages in a lawsuit or compensation in a settlement against the responsible party is almost certainly in your best interest.

When it comes time to pursue a claim for damages against a large corporation, having the resources, experience and knowledge of a proven personal injury firm can help you put your best foot forward.

How The Best Slip And Fall Lawyer Might Be Able To Help

A knowledgeable accident lawyer can help in many ways; here are just a few…

  • efficiently navigate the claim process, including naming all of the responsible parties in the lawsuit
  • gather and evaluate medical records to assess the extent of your injuries
  • investigate the scene of the accident for evidence of the company’s negligence
  • locate and interview witnesses of the accident
  • prepare you for any testimony at depositions or trial
  • provide advice and counsel and insulate you from third-party defense and litigation lawyers and insurance companies

Avoid Being Pressured Into Premature Settlements

No one necessarily looks forward to going through the legal process of filing a claim. In fact, many large corporations count on this to bully victims into accepting a settlement for far less than they deserve or dropping the lawsuit entirely.

However, having experienced injury attorneys, such as Zukerberg & Halperin, on your team can help streamline the process and prevent the responsible party from prolonging the resolution of your case.

Our experience litigating on behalf of major accident victims against large retailers and restaurants means that you will have a competent accident lawyer on your case that knows the process inside and out. In fact, if you were injured in a slip and fall, it is likely that one of the firm’s senior partners will personally handle and try your case from start to finish.

Their familiarity with how large corporations attempt to settle claims is crucial to preventing accident victims from being pressured into settlements that may not even cover the long-term cost of medical treatment for their injuries.

Working with an experienced personal injury firm early in the process ensures that you do not unintentionally give away any of your rights to recover or say anything that could hurt your chances of recovering against the responsible party.

Common Slip And Fall Accident Types

Injuries from falls are far more common than you might think.

Statistics from the National Floor Safety Institute reveal that falls account for more than 21% of all visits to emergency rooms in the U.S. They are the leading cause of injuries resulting in emergency room care, which is unfortunate because they are preventable in many cases with proper safety precautions and maintenance by the party responsible for the premises.

Some of the most common types of accidents that result in serious injuries to patrons of restaurants and stores include:

  • Slip and fall
  • Trip and fall
  • Premises liability, such as getting seriously injured from a hazard on someone else’s property

Common Slip And Fall Causes

Unfortunately, even though major stores and restaurants profit from customers coming into their establishments, they do not always exercise the proper care to make sure that their spaces are safe for the public or their employees to visit.

There are many reasons why someone could fall or get injured in a store or restaurant, such as (but not limited to):

  • Wet or slippery floors
  • Snow or icy conditions
  • Inadequate maintenance or clearing of hazards
  • Structural collapses
  • Water leaks or flooding
  • Uncovered wires or misplaced equipment
  • Defective staircases or handrails
  • Unsecured rugs or carpets
  • Loose or broken floors, sidewalks or steps

Common Slip And Fall Injuries

Accidents in stores or restaurants that result in serious and debilitating injuries may have severe repercussions throughout the rest of the victim’s life. These victims deserve the absolute best results from their personal injury case.

Falling, tripping or being impaled by an object on someone else’s property can set the victim up for years of expensive, painful and unexpected medical treatments.

The extent of injuries from a fall is even more severe for elderly adults because their bones are more susceptible to fractures.

Additionally, they may experience much longer recovery times to return to their regular activities after suffering from a major fall.

According to the National Safety Council, falls are the number one cause of death for adults over the age of 65.

Some of the common slip and fall injuries sustained by victims of a major accident on someone else’s property may include (but are not limited to):

  • Broken bones
  • Sprains
  • Dislocated limbs
  • Brain injuries
  • Trauma
  • Hip injuries

Common Treatments

The type of treatment that an accident victim will require depends on their medical history and the extent of their injuries.

Even if you have insurance coverage for these medical expenses, you may still have to miss time from work to receive treatment.

Filing a claim against the party responsible for your accident can help with the assistance of a top slip and fall lawyer. These attorneys can assist with:

  • Making sure your settlement covers your current and future costs for medical treatments…
  • plus the loss of any future income
  • As well as compensation for pain and suffering

Keep in mind that, after an injury, it is important to seek out the medical care required to treat your injuries even while your case is still pending.

Some of the common treatments required for victims of serious falls may sometimes include:

  • Hospital or ER visits
  • X-rays
  • Surgery
  • MRIs
  • Physical therapy
  • Stitches
  • Ongoing medical treatment, including rehabilitative physical therapy

Retaining a Slip and Fall Lawyer DC for Your Case

If you or a loved one were the victims of an unsafe condition at an establishment in or around DC, having the top lawyers in Washington DC on your side can make a big difference.

Seeking the compensation that you deserve after a serious injury can be complicated and time-consuming without the experience and guidance of a trusted slip and fall lawyer DC to pursue your case.
