Premises Liability Regarding Slips & Falls
Injuries sustained in slips and falls can take a long time to recover from, especially for elderly victims. They can result in continuous mobility issues, chronic pain, multiple surgeries, extended hospital stays and more. Slips and falls typically result in:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Torn ligaments, tendons or muscles
- Back and spine injuries
- Neck injuries
At Hepworth Legal, we do what it takes to ensure that you get the fair financial compensation you deserve, this includes:
- Investigating the Slip & Fall Accident. Determining if a property owner took the proper steps to secure a safe environment on his or her property is key. During our investigation, we see if there were properly posted warning signs, uncompleted repairs or whether hazardous conditions, such as ice or snow on walkways, were not addressed.
- Negotiating with the insurance company. When a representative of an insurance company contacts you, the amount of financial compensation that they will offer you is most likely far below to what you may be legally entitled. Our personal injury attorneys can deal directly with the insurance companies and make sure you are treated fairly.
- Handling the legal paperwork. Completing and keeping track of the seemingly unlimited legal documents pertaining your accident is just one of the necessary tasks you can depend on us to handle for you, while you focus on getting better.
Dealing with the aftermath of an injury sustained from a slip and fall due to the negligence of a property owner can be difficult to handle. Also, you may not fully realize the magnitude of injuries until sometime after the accident occurred. Having a Utah law firm with experience from representing thousands of injury cases can help you make sure that you do not overlook the details that are important to your case. Contact one of the attorneys at Hepworth Legal for the legal representation you need. We work hard to ensure you are fairly compensated for your slip and fall accident.
