3 Ways Our Attorneys Can Help You After a Slip and Fall
Everyone is familiar with a slip and fall is, after all, the term is quite explanatory. With this in mind, we never really see slip and falls happen too often and especially never think it could happen to us. Most companies are smart and decide to utilize proper signage. Everyone knows the sign, the big yellow one with the black stick figure falling that says caution in bold lettering. This sign lets us know that the floor is wet or damaged and we should avoid it for our benefit. But what happens when the sign isn’t put out in time or at all? Some businesses fail to put out the sign, and while they may get lucky sometimes, someone is eventually going to slip and fall. These slip and fall accidents can go either way too. Some people face more embarrassment than injuries, while others can even suffer from broken bones. It’s safe to say that these situations should not be taken lightly, which is why we always recommend getting an attorney after a slip and fall accident. With the right representation, you can find an attorney to be a huge help. Here’s how.
- We Can Gather Evidence
After a slip and fall happens, you are likely to either get up and continue with your day or go seek medical attention. Most people are not considering what their next move is going to be after the dust has settled. This is a reason for getting an attorney after your slip and fall incident – you need someone who is experienced in the field so you know how to prepare. You may not have been playing detective, but that’s fine because we can do it for you. With an attorney from Bernstein Polsky on your side, you can worry about resting and healing while we gather all of the evidence needed to build your case. This includes talking to witnesses, taking photos at the scene, and talking to people who have also had problems with the company. All of this information with previous accounts of slip and falls at the company can result in your case looking pretty good to the judge.
- We Can Prove Liability
Before you have a case to pursue, we need to be able to prove that the accident was not your fault, but the companies. The best way to do this is by gathering the evidence and presenting it with your story. This is going to prove that the way you fell, could not have happened on purpose. The best thing to do for proving liability too is looking into the company and seeing how many times this has happened before and if the company even has the materials to warn people of a wet or damaged floor. As experts in the law, your attorney from Bernstein Polsky will be able to prove liability and help you win your case.

That is why your Bernstein Polsky attorney will deal with the court and other attorneys for you. After getting your story and gathering our evidence, you won’t even need to speak in court.
