Slip and fall cases are perhaps the number one reason for injuries. The reason why such incidents are so common is simply because of the negligence on the part of the other party. What if you are walking in a shopping mall, but don’t realize that the area was only recently cleaned and is wet? If there’s no sign on the floor that says that the floor is wet, you are going to continue walking.
Eventually, you might end up slipping and falling. Such cases range in severity. You may come off with a small bruise on your body, or you may even end up with a brain injury or a bone fracture. It mostly depends upon the manner of the fall. If you fall head-first on the ground, you are likely to get a serious brain injury.
Most slip and fall cases are usually caused as a result of an accident. For instance, you may collide with somebody who wasn’t looking ahead of himself or herself, and took a tumble. Nobody wants to intentionally slip and take a fall. Most of these cases are caused due to the negligence of another party. In case of such an accident, you should immediately consider hiring an injury lawyer.
At Schiller Law, we believe in justice and fair compensation for our clients. We assign a particular injury attorney to each case. The injury lawyer will first start with collecting all the details of the accident. This will help to determine the party at fault. Next, the injury attorney will start calculating the amount of compensation due. Many factors play a part in calculating the total amount due.
If you sustained a brain injury as a result of the incident, the compensation would obviously be much greater than if you just came off with a simple bruise. Factors such as the severity of the injury, the extent of recovery and the total amount of medical bills will all play a part. The injury lawyer is going to take all of these factors into account and come up with a figure.
At Schiller Law Offices in Indianapolis, we have devoted our practice to getting justice for our clients. With extensive experience in personal injury cases, we believe that we can get you the compensation that you deserve. In Indianapolis, we have helped hundreds of clients get fair treatment and compensation.
Many times, people who are involved in such cases are ripped off. They don’t get the justice that they deserve. If you have sustained a serious injury because of the negligence of another party, you need to file for compensation.
This is important for more than personal reasons. If the party at fault is forced to pay compensation, they will be wary of their actions in the future. This can prevent others from getting injured in the future. The law may even grant punitive or exemplary damages depending upon the case.
