- Casey Hamm
- May 12, 2015
Most of the personal injury cases we’ve discussed on our past episodes have been vehicle accident related. Here, at Zanes Law firm, we also get many calls about injury cases where a person happens to fall down, gets hurt and wants to bring a claim against the party they feel is responsible. Unfortunately, people often get severely (sometimes even fatally) injured when they fall the wrong way and land unnaturally.
It is important to understand that in many cases and situations, even if you’re in a store or on someone’s property, no one else is responsible for your slip and fall injury. But having said that, we do represent a lot of folks every year who we are able to get compensated because someone else was ultimately negligible and responsible for their fall and injuries.
On this episode of Zanes Law Personal Injury Legal Tips, your host Doug Zanes covers the basics of slip and fall accident cases. Tune in to find out why some cases are more difficult to win than others and learn about the challenges that come with different types of these cases.
