The second leading cause of injuries in the United States are slip and
fall accidents. If you have ever slipped and fallen down, you realize
how painful these injuries can be. In fact, slip and fall accidents account
for approximately 16,000 deaths every year and they usually result from
someone else's carelessness. If you or someone you love has suffered
injury from a slip and fall accident that was caused by a hazardous condition,
you should talk to a San Jose personal injury attorney about filing an
Slip and Fall Injury Claim
If you are injured in a slip and fall accident in San Jose, you need to
seek an immediate medical evaluation of your injuries. Back, neck and
head pain or trauma are all some of the most commonly sustained slip and
fall injuries, and victims could suffer long-term pain or rehabilitation
from these injuries. By seeking a professional health evaluation, you
will have a greater chance of recovering compensation through a
personal injury claim.
A caring attorney from our firm can help you gather evidence of your accident,
such as witness accounts and pictures, to support your claim to compensation.
If the slip and fall happened on a commercial property like a mall, you
should ask the building or property manager to fill out a report. We will
stick close to your side throughout this process to ensure that you have
all of the evidence you need to file a claim and seek compensation in court.
