Slip/Trip and Fall Accidents
Falling accidents are common and sometimes result in significant injury. Losing balance and falling hard or in an awkward position can lead to personal injury and even permanent disability. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury following a fall on a residential or commercial property, Law Offices of Andrew Zeytuntsyan may be able to secure a financial settlement for you that will help to take care of medical costs along with compensating for pain and suffering.
A variety of environmental factors can lead to slip and fall/trip and fall accidents. Wet and slippery surfaces, broken steps, torn carpeting, cluttered pathways, poorly lit walkways, and lack of warning signs are all common causes of slip and fall/trip accidents. If you have fallen due to unsafe conditions in a residential or commercial property, that means that the owner of the property failed to provide a safe environment, and are potentially liable for your injuries. The tricky part of slip and fall/trip accidents is that by the time a case is established, the property owner has remedied the situation. That is why we recommend taking photos of the environment where you fell. They can help demonstrate negligence by way of the owner in your future case.
Taking on Insurance Companies
In most slip and fall/trip and fall cases, insurance companies will try to claim that the victim was responsible for their own fall by saying that the victim should have taken more care. At Law Offices of Andrew Zeytuntsyan, we are expecting this response and we will be prepared to counter it. We understand that suffering an injury following a slip and fall/trip and fall accident can make the victim feel foolish, and therefore makes them vulnerable to the insurance company’s paltry settlement offers. We will not let you settle for anything less than you deserve.
Calculating a Fair Settlement
Back, ankle, knee, and hip injuries are the most common following a slip and fall/trip and fall accident. At Law Offices of Andrew Zeytuntsyan, we will ensure that the medical expenses and pain and suffering following your accident are accounted for. We will not let you accept a settlement that will not truly take care of you and your injury.
