When You Slip and Fall in Arizona

What You Need To Know

Don't let the insurance company kick you while you're down

A slip and fall accident involves issues of premises liability.

  • In most cases, the person(s) or entity who controls the premises has a duty to make sure that the premises are maintained in a reasonably safe manner.
  • The controller of the premises may be the proprietor, owner, resident, tenant, or some other person depending upon the particular facts of the case.

A  slip and fall accident lawyer can help you secure compensation for medical bills and other traumatic expenses.

Be sure to call Cluff Injury Lawyers, if you get into an accident on another's property.

If you've been injured in a Slip and Fall, then you already know that they cause some very real problems for their victims, including:

Health Problems. When you have been injured in a slip and fall, that is someone else's fault, you need to get all of the treatment that your doctor recommends. It is also very important to get any imaging studies she requests. It is important for your recovery and it is important evidence to give to the at-fault party's insurance company.

Financial problems due to medical bills lost wages and missed work. Often injured parties have to arrange for and pay for child care so that they can get the medical treatments they need.

Legal problems. One of the most difficult legal issues that slip and fall victims face is that they are often called liars by the people that should be paying for their injuries. That is where we come in. We will need to collect available video footage, witness statements, and other evidence. We are skilled at proving liability in slip and fall cases. It is important to call us immediately after your slip and fall accident. Evidence has to be requested and preserved.

Practical Problems. When you are severely injured, it seems as though every day brings a new challenge. It can be too painful to reach over the side of a crib to pick up your infant. Activities you once looked forward to become painful and stressful.

Emotional Problems. All of the previous four types of problems on this list can lead to emotional problems. It is important to stay aware of those feelings and seek treatment if necessary.

But there is another type of problem that is perhaps more scary than any of the types of problems listed above. It is the Hidden Problem. You simply don't know what you don't know.

“You simply don't know

what you don't know.”

When you make a personal injury claim, you are surrounded by traps for the unwary. On the page below (and throughout this website), you will find information that will educate you as to some of the issues that you are likely to face in your personal injury claim.
