another party’s negligence. If so, then you may be due compensation. This compensation can take many forms, paying for your medical bills and more. Our team at Gratt & Associates has helped many who tripped, fell, and were hurt to recover the compensation that they deserve. 

Should you have been injured by tripping and falling, we offer a free case evaluation. During that, we’ll draw upon our years of experience to let you know what your case is worth and how we can make sure you get it. 

How to Tell If You Have a Trip and Fall Case 

Essentially, you may have a case if another party had a duty to make their property safe and, by breaching that duty, you were injured. 

If you’re on someone else’s property, whether it’s as a guest, a shopper, a tenant, an employee, and so forth, the owner/landlord of the property has a duty of care. They have a duty to make sure that the property is safe, secure, etc. 

If you believe there’s even a chance that someone else’s negligence led to your injury, there’s no downside to reaching out to an experienced attorney. We’ll let you know the truth definitively. 

What Damages You Can Receive 

If you’re hurt by tripping and falling, you can recover compensation for everything that you’ve been through. For example, if you’re unable to work as a result of your injury, you can recover those wages that you lost. If you’re unable to work in the same capacity that you had before the injury, you can even receive compensation for the wages you would have made. 

Recovery from a trip and fall accident can lead to serious injuries that require medical attention. You can receive compensation to pay for your medical bills as well. This can include trips to see a doctor, medications, rehab, and much more. 

These injuries can cause you great pain and suffering, lowering your quality and enjoyment of life. You can recover compensation for that as well. 

During a free case evaluation with an attorney from Gratt & Associates, we’ll leverage our years of experience to determine what your case is worth and how we can help you to recover everything you should. 

What to Do If You Trip, Fall, and Are Injured 

Assess your injuries. Even if you don’t think you were hurt much at all, it’s worth it to get looked at by a medical professional. All too often, someone believes that they weren’t hurt that badly when they slipped and fell only to have suffered serious internal injuries, injuries that they were not aware of due to being in shock, and so forth. 

Gather evidence. Take pictures and videos of the accident scene. Did someone see it? Get their contact information. 

Did you suffer your trip and fall in a store of some kind? If so, then you should file an accident report. Ask the manager for a report. If you remember to do so, before you leave get a copy of it. 

Once you’ve done all of the above, then reach out to us. We’ll be able to guide you through every step of the process. 

Experienced Injury Attorneys
