Upper West Side Slip and Fall Lawyer
Slip and fall accidents can occur anywhere– including the hustle and bustle of the Upper West Side. Quite often, these mishaps are caused by oversight or negligence on the part of property owners, leaving injury victims to pay the price.
Recovering from an accident takes time, effort, and, yes, money. But negligent parties may be hesitant to admit their share of blame. As for insurers, all too often, worry more about protecting their bottom line than about providing fair compensation.
If this has happened to you, then you know exactly what we’re talking about. That’s why we urge you to get in touch with a slip and fall attorney today. Prompt action can help you to get the compensation you need for your health and peace of mind.
The high costs of slip and fall accidents
Research shows that slip and fall accidents impose a high cost, indeed, both on their victims and society at large. Here’s some food for thought to show what we mean:
- Putting working people out of work: That’s what happens tens of thousands of times a year, due to fall-related accidents.
- Up to one year, often longer: That’s how long it can take a slip and fall victim to recover from his or her injuries. Imagine what missing 12 months of work could do to your financial situation.
- Two million times a year: That’s how often flooring surfaces contribute to a fall, according to the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC). Examples include loose or missing tiles, threadbare carpet, and slippery surfaces.
Not just seniors, but all of us
One popular misconception is that only senior citizens and the physically challenged are at risk of a slip and fall injury. In reality, any of us can fall victim to these painful, often disabling public health threats. When an accident occurs, a personal injury attorney is the person to see. They can help you to get fair compensation for your medical bills, lost income, and other related expenses. The road to recovery starts by giving Douglas and London a call today.
