You Fell On Their Property – Seek What You Deserve
It is the responsibility of caretakers and property owners to provide safe environments for guests and others on their grounds. When a slip-and-fall accident results in substantial injuries, there are several losses that can put you out of commission—professionally and personally.
Don’t let the negligence of a property owner significantly damage your life. Seek an attorney with experience representing those injured on another’s premises. Roberts & Harris PC in Raleigh can help you pursue justice for your accident. We handle cases throughout North Carolina.
Wherever The Accident, We Can Make A Difference In Your Case
A dangerous fall can occur when property owners fail to maintain safe premises.
You may have tripped over hazardous debris or slipped on ice or liquids from unattended spills. Unsafe stairs, uneven flooring or a gap in the carpet can also cause serious injuries.
These accidents commonly occur in commercial establishments such as:
- Gas stations and convenience stores
- Parking garages
- Grocery stores
- Movie theaters
- Department stores
- Shopping malls
Whatever the event, we will do a thorough examination of the details and build a case that gives you a chance to claim the compensation you deserve.
Insurance companies have a duty to compensate for accidents. We are ready to go to battle for you, seeking maximum compensation to cover myriad expenses you may be facing, from medical bills to rehabilitation costs to lost wages.
Why Hire A Lawyer For Your Slip-And-Fall Case?
It’s a normal human reaction to feel a bit embarrassed after a fall, especially if you fell down in a public space. However, that natural embarrassment shouldn’t stop you from doing what you need to put the pieces back together after suffering an injury. Accidents can and do happen but someone needs to be held accountable if they could have prevented your injury. Our legal system’s remedy for dealing with negligence is allowing victims to pursue a lawsuit for damages. In this case that means pursuing a personal injury claim to recover financial compensation for your medical bills, pain and suffering, lost earnings, and other injury-related damages.
The insurance company knows you are entitled to this compensation but will still work hard to limit their payouts and make the experience miserable for you. Having an experienced personal injury lawyer pursuing your claim can make all the difference. Your attorney will focus on what’s best for you and let the insurance company know you are serious about getting the maximum compensation available to you. At Roberts & Harris PC we are prepared for the games the insurance company will play. We’ll level the playing field and deal with them so you can focus on putting your life back together and moving forward.
Is A Lawsuit Really The Answer?
No one likes suing. Well, we take that back; there probably are people out there who enjoy suing but they’re definitely the exception. Most people would rather avoid being tangled up in a lawsuit and prefer to go anywhere else but court. In a perfect world negligent property owners would take you to the hospital and pay for your medical treatment and lost wages out of the goodness of their heart until things are completely back to normal. In the real world that simply doesn’t happen.
In the real world, insurance companies and their profit motives stand in the way of you getting the resources you need to recover from your injuries and keep the lights on while you’re unable to work. It’s important to remember that you’re not bringing a claim against the specific property owner; you are bringing a claim for recovering funds from their insurance company. This is why people have insurance and you should not go without the resources you need to avoid inconveniencing someone. This is especially important to remember if your slip-and-fall took place on property owned by someone you know. They carry insurance for just such a time and you are not doing the wrong thing by pursuing your rights with the help of a personal injury lawyer.
