Personal Injury Legal Representation in Coeur d’Alene and Beyond for Slips and Fall Accidents
Second only to car crashes, slip and fall accidents are the second most common form of personal injury accidents in the United States. Slip and fall accidents could result in both short-term medical needs as well as long term medical care, including rehabilitation. Additionally, slip and fall injuries could lead to lasting disabilities and result in a net loss of income. The Sargent Firm has represented countless clients in their slip and fall accident claims, winning our clients the compensation they deserve and are entitled to under the laws of the State of Idaho.
Unfortunately, many individuals fail to file a claim for slip and fall accidents because they blame themselves. Slipping and falling to the floor can be a source of great embarrassment for some, and many people jump to the false conclusion that the fall was caused by their own clumsiness. Instead of pursuing the claim to its fullest extent, many slip and fall accident victims settle for what the insurance company’s initially offer.
The unfortunate truth is that most insurance companies attempt to take advantage of victims when they are in vulnerable positions in order to boost their bottom line. By pressuring a victim to accept a low offer, insurance companies maintain their profit margins. Understand that injuries you suffered as a result of a slip or a fall are not your fault.
Slip and fall claims are considered part of premises liability. Property owners and property managers have an obligation to keep their property safe of dangers. This applies to stores, malls, restaurants, hotels, and all other businesses that routinely have customers visiting. If you or a loved one fell on a sidewalk or stairs, while walking in a store or restaurant, or in any other circumstance where you were visiting a business, office, or private property, the property owner was ultimately responsible for your safety. Slip and fall accidents can also occur on the job, at a construction site or other workplace.
Why Contact a Coeur d’Alene Slip and Fall Attorney?
It is very difficult to accurately predict how much the financial burden will be after a slip and fall accident. An injury that may appear resolved can reappear or even result in a lasting, chronic disability. Medical expenses, loss of future income, and renovations to accommodate a new disability all must be considered to calculate the overall cost of an accident. The emotional harm an accident can put on a family is another consideration. If the accident was not your fault, you should not suffer the ensuing financial burdens. The party liable must compensate you for all losses. Filing a Coeur d’Alene, Idaho slip and fall lawsuit has two main goals: First, to get the compensation you deserve and are legally entitled to for your suffering, expenses, and losses; and second, to mandate that the property owner changes or fixes the underlying cause of the slip and fall accident.
