Slip and Fall Accident

A slip and fall accident is often the result of poor maintenance of a property. A property may be in a hazardous state as the result of the failure of the property owner to properly clear snow and ice from a sidewalk or parking lot, failure to clean up spills in a timely fashion, or failure to maintain the surface in a condition free of trip hazards. A slip and fall can also occur as a result of a failure to provide adequate warning that a floor is slippery due to cleaning or as the result of the application of wax.

If you have been injured in a slip and fall, you should consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. The experienced personal injury lawyers at Paciocco & Mellow are standing by to help you. It is also important that you document your fall. You should have a friend or family member take photographs of the location of your fall. If your fall took place at a commercial premises, you should report the fall to the store manager.

Even if you think that you may have been responsible for your fall, you should have your case reviewed by an experienced personal injury lawyer. There is often not one single cause for an accident and the lawyers at Paciocco & Mellow will explore all the possible causes for your fall. It may be that you yourself are partly to blame for the accident, but even so, if someone else’s actions or inaction played a role, you may still be entitled to compensation. When the victim of an accident is also partially responsible for the accident, it is known as contributory negligence. In such cases, the court will make a determination of the degree of responsibility of the injured party and will decrease the damages awarded by that percentage. The experienced Windsor personal injury lawyers at Paciocco & Mellow can fully explain how contributory negligence may impact your case.

Slip and falls often result in very significant injuries. A fractured wrist or ankle can result in pain and dysfunction for years. Slip and fall injuries also can result in the need for physiotherapy or chiropractic therapy that is not covered by government health insurance. If you do not have private health insurance, or if your private coverage allows for only limited physiotherapy or chiropractic treatments, this can result in a significant out of pocket expense. The experienced Windsor personal injury lawyers at Paciocco & Mellow will explain to you how such expenses may be recoverable in a law suit.
