Slip & Fall Accident
not your fault. not your price to pay.
A slip injury or falling accidents can happen to anyone. Sometimes people blame themselves. The elderly especially, may assume their own frailty made them susceptible. Others presume weather was the cause and nothing can be done, but property owners and occupiers have responsibilities – if they were at fault, they should be held accountable. Liability may be difficult to prove and that’s where our expertise comes in.
What’s at question in a Slip and Fall is whether or not premises were kept “reasonably” safe. And when what’s “reasonable” is contested, you’ll be pleased to have the Helpforme team on your side.
The right experts on your team.
Typically, those responsible for the premises will insist that a system of maintenance and inspection was in place and that they should not be held liable. Our team of experts are often able to show that this is simply not true.
Specific engineers – civil, mechanical, biomechanical – will analyze your accident. Investigators will search for patterns of negligence and other key details. Medical specialists will assess existing injuries and their long-term consequences.
To build a credible case, facts need to be collected with integrity and thoroughness. Together with these experts, the Helpforme legal team will prepare your claim and enable you to go for the maximum compensation you deserve.
