Determining Fault in Slip & Fall Injury Cases
At Nance Cacciatore, our firm’s lawyers investigate accident scenes to determine liability. We gather as much evidence as possible to understand factors leading to slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall accidents at commercial and residential properties, including:
- Wet/slippery walkways
- Inadequate lighting
- Wet floors with no warning signs
- Property defects such as broken stairs or hand railings
- Unpainted curbs
- Improper sidewalks
- Obstructed pathways
Slip and fall accidents cause many types of injuries including:
- Broken bones.
- Sprained ankles/ wrists
- Knee injuries
- Shoulder dislocations or muscle strains
- Spine and nerve damage
- Traumatic brain injury
- Cuts/ bruises
Our law firm’s in-house investigators meet with witnesses and document the property’s condition. The attorneys at our firm also seek to obtain surveillance videos and maintenance records to understand if the property was kept up with proper repairs. When beneficial, we review contract agreements to determine if a third party, such as a vendor or contractor, is responsible for the slip-and-fall accident. We are committed to holding all at-fault parties accountable.
Preparing for Trial
At Nance Cacciatore, we prepare every case to be successful at trial. The attorneys at our firm incorporate as much evidence as possible to establish the extent of damages and injuries. We will document your losses, so you are fully compensated.
We want insurance companies to know we will not be forced into an early settlement. The attorneys at our firm will negotiate to help you obtain the money your case is worth to cover medical bills, lost wages, and property damages. If the amount is unacceptable to our clients, we will proceed to trial, when appropriate.
