Everyone stumbles from time to time. Usually, nothing more is bruised than our ego. Occasionally, however, a person can sustain a significant or traumatic injury from falling. It is not uncommon to fracture an ankle, leg, wrist, or other extremity when tripping or slipping on a roadway, sidewalk, or even at the local supermarket. Knees, wrists, or shoulders can often be twisted so severely that the ligaments can tear requiring significant surgery to repair. The spine, both neck and back, can be so significantly displaced as to cause herniations or other severe disk damage. How is an individual to know if the fall they took was the result of the negligence of another?

Slip and/or Trip and Fall accidents can be caused by many circumstances. Accidents can occur as a result of improper maintenance, failure to remove snow or ice, cracks in the sidewalk, poor lighting, loose or broken hand rails, even debris on the ground. The Sachs Firm has the experience required to help you through the often difficult times and process of recovering for your losses. Our attorneys know the specific statutes regarding sidewalk repair and maintenance. We know the standards for snow and/or ice removal. We understand the specific requirements set forth with regard to safe passageways in both restaurants and stores.

You May be able to Recover Money for your Slip and Fall Injuries

You may be eligible to recover compensation for your injuries and you may be entitled to receive compensation for your lost wages. Protecting your rights is the most important step since, in some situations, you may become personally responsible for all medical bills. Even though you may have private health insurance, your own insurance carrier often has the right to reimbursement from you if the accident stems from the negligence of others.

Protect Your Rights Under the Laws

Are you aware of all of the intricacies necessary to protect your rights? It is urgent that you contact us immediately to protect your rights as you only have a limited time (often less than 90 days from the date of the accident) to file a claim against a city or municipality or your rights may be waived. Even if you believe that your own actions may have partially caused the accident, you may have the right to recover for your injuries. It is necessary to file a personal injury claim to properly pursue any legal action needed to recover compensation for which you may be entitled.
