slip fall accident lawyer CLEVELAND

Paulozzi LPA Injury Lawyers is a top rated injury firm that has represented slip and fall victims for over 25 years. People who fall due the negligence of someone else are entitled to compensation. We are committed to pursuing justice for these victims of negligence who often suffer significant injuries as a result of their fall. We have the knowledge, experience and persistence to hold responsible parties accountable for all related injuries that could have been prevented through due care.

Who is Responsible if You Fall?

You are walking in a supermarket or restaurant and the floor beneath you is wet, and you slip and fall to the floor. You are hurt physically and emotionally embarrassed. Are you legally entitled to compensation? The owners of the premise are responsible for keeping their property safe and maintaining a hazardous free environment. They may have neglected this responsibility and you suffered injury as a result. Now you or a loved one faces the prospect of expensive medical care possibly including recurring treatments and rehabilitation. Do not let the responsible property owner who is negligent avoid compensating you for your injuries and your suffering.

Slip & Fall Injuries Happen Numerous Ways

  • Falls from porches or balconies due to poor structure or lack of maintenance
  • Slip and fall on a wet floor in businesses
  • Trip and fall on broken concrete stairs or ramp
  • Trip and fall due to a faulty escalator or elevator
  • Injuries from falling merchandise in stores
  • Injury at an amusement park or sporting event
  • Slip and fall from “unnatural” accumulation of snow, water, or ice

Contact us today so we may answer your questions.

I slipped at a relative’s house, but should I file a claim against them?

We get this question all the time. People fall and get hurt on a friend or relative’s property and feel bad about filing a claim or a lawsuit. We need to say this – you have to do what is best for your situation.

Slip and fall injuries can cost a ton of money when it comes to medical expenses and long-term care. Even if your friend or relative offers to cover your emergency medical care out-of-pocket, that may not be the last time you need care. What about lost income if you miss working?

When you file a claim or a personal injury lawsuit, you are doing so against their homeowner’s insurance, not them. Never feel bad for doing what is best for your health.

Can I still file a personal injury lawsuit if I didn’t seek medical attention at all?

If you did not seek medical care at all, you are probably not going to be successful in a slip and fall case. However, if you think your injuries are from a slip and fall incident, and it has been less than two years since the incident took place, you may still have a chance to file a claim. You need to seek medical assistance immediately and then get on the phone with a Cleveland slip and fall lawyer.

Please understand that it is always a good idea to seek medical attention immediately after a slip and fall incident, even if you do not feel any pain. The full extent of some injuries is often not known for hours, days, or weeks after a slip and fall incident happens.

I feel stupid for falling, so why would I file a lawsuit?

We always hear from people who say they are embarrassed for falling in the first place. We need to make it clear – many slip and fall incidents are the faults of property owners and their employees.

  • The National Floor Safety Institute says that slip and fall incidents caused around one million people seek treatment in hospitals each year.

Some of the common causes of these incidents include:

  • Spills of food and drinks on the floor
  • Electrical cords and other wires on the floor
  • Defects in the pavement
  • Carpeting that is loose or torn
  • Inadequate lighting in an area
  • Wet floor signs being absent after an area has been mopped

None of these things is your fault. You need to seek help from a Cleveland slip and fall lawyer if you are injured by any of these causes.

I wasn’t able to gather evidence from the scene. What should I do now?

We know that the aftermath of a slip and fall incident can be chaotic, especially if you or a loved one were hurt. If you were unable to document the scene with photographs, let your attorney get into investigating the incident. There may be surveillance footage available that can be used in your case, and we may even find that a store employee will testify on your behalf. Remember, if you or a loved one are ever involved in a slip and fall accident, try to photograph the scene and any hazard that caused the incident. As soon as you leave, most evidence will disappear.
