Slip + Falls

A severe slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accident can strike anyone. Elderly people are especially susceptible to injuries that may result in a serious loss of function or independence. In fact, falls are the leading cause of injuries to the elderly.

Property owners or renters need to take reasonable steps to ensure that their premises are reasonably safe. Failure to do so will result in liability for injuries sustained on their premises. Legal claims have arisen out of a range of dangerous conditions, including:

  • Defective or broken stairs, inadequately lighting, or faulty construction or maintenance, missing or insufficient railings
  • Uneven concrete sidewalks
  • Slippery surfaces in stores, restaurants or other commercial venues

At David Doig + Associates, you can count on our experience and practical guidance on whether your claim is worth pursuing. Important considerations include:

  • An early investigation
  • Investigating your claim is up to you and your lawyer — not an insurance company. Taking steps to preserve evidence and contact witnesses can be especially critical
  • An extensive rehabilitation team that focuses on the best rehabilitation possible regardless of the cost will drastically improve your chance of a full recovery

Put the strength of our experience on your side. Contact David Doig Jones directly to arrange a free consultation. We look forward to speaking with you and explaining how we can help.
