ST. PETERSBURG SLIP & FALL ATTORNEY

SLIP AND FALLS

Slip and falls or trip and fall accidents are so prevalent because they can literally happen everywhere. From walking down the aisle of a local grocery store to a parking lot after work hours you never know when your next step could be your last healthy step. According to the National Floor Safety Institute there are eight (8) million ER visits related to falls a year. Of those 8 million, 1 million of them are attributed to slip and falls. So what should you do if you trip and fall or slip and fall?

1.  Find immediate medical attention- Finding immediate medical attention, if necessary, can insure that you do not increase your injuries as well as document your injuries by an unbiased opinion. Especially if you hit your head, you could have memory issues and not remember what happened.
2. File an incident report- Make sure to also get a copy of the report for you to give to Attorney Bernstein.
3. Take your own photos- If you own a cell phone or someone around has one. Please take as many pictures as you can of the location, conditions, injuries etc. If you have your own phone, you can send them via email to Attorney Bernstein. If a witness took pictures get their information and have them email you or dbernsteinlaw@gmail.com
4. Make sure to get information of witnesses- Do not trust that the place will create an accurate incident report. Make sure to write down and save everyone’s information, including phone numbers. This is critical so it doesn’t becomes a you vs. the places story.

When you should contact a Slip and Fall Attorney?
Immediately after you can medically do so. If you are rushed to the hospital, and are seriously hurt, please take care of your health before calling Bernstein Law. However, as soon as you can you want to reach out to Bernstein Law. Reason being insurance companies know you do not have representation until they are notified of representation. They will try to do tricks and traps to trap you into statements, admissions that you aren’t hurt and statements it was your own fault. Before you know it, you have agreed to something you didn’t want to do. By reaching out to an attorney, you ensure you have an experienced person handling your matter from the beginning and don’t have to stress about the tricks and traps.

Why you should contact a Slip and Fall Attorney?
Besides the above mentioned, slip and fall or trip and fall accidents are not as simple as they sound. In order to prove the case you must show that the owner violated a duty of care. Basically, you have to show it was their fault. By hiring Bernstein law, we know how to navigate the complexities of the courtroom and insurance companies. We will verify insurance, make sure we have the correct parties who are to blame, make sure witnesses have been identified, preserve any footage, and stay informed on your medical treatment.

How much does representation on a slip and fall or trip and fall cost?
At Bernstein Law we offer a free evaluation and consultation of your case. If there is no case, it costs you nothing. If you are indeed injured and have a claim, we will assist you in getting the compensation you deserve.
Our fee is based on a contingency, meaning if we do not collect for you, we charge no fee.
