Slip and Fall

Most people see slips and falls as their mistake – you weren’t looking where you were going, or you were clumsy. But all too often, slips and falls are not mere accidents, but rather the result of carelessness by the property owner. If you are injured due to the negligence of a property owner in Washington State, you could have a premises liability case on your hands and you could be owed compensation for your pain and injuries. Did you trip because of an uneven sidewalk? Did a product at a store fall on you? Did you fall down because of a badly lit hallway or stairwell?

According to the National Safety Council, slips and falls are the single most common reason for Emergency Room visits. The U.S. Department of Labor reports that the average slip and fall injury costs roughly $28,000. For many individuals and families across the county, medical bills like that could put them in a dire financial situation that would be difficult to recover from.

Serving the Bellevue and Seattle areas of Washington State, Andrew Kim Law Firm, PLLC, specializes in securing financial compensation for slip and fall injuries and other instances of premises liability. With over 15 years of related experience, Andrew Kim and his legal team will help you determine if your fall could have been prevented by the property owner, build your case, and ultimately seek justice for you and your family.

What are some examples of premises liability?

• You are injured slipping and falling on a snowy, icy, or unshoveled sidewalk.
• You are injured when a product at a store falls on you from shelving.
• You are injured because of a poorly lit hallway, stairwell, or room.
• You are injured because of a poorly repaired stairway, sidewalk, or other surface.
• You are injured slipping and falling on a freshly mopped floor that is not marked as dangerous.
• You are injured at a construction site lacking cautionary signs or safety fencing.

In any of these cases, if the property owner was well aware of the danger that caused your injury, and if the property owner had a sufficient opportunity to fix the problem but did not, he or she could very well be liable for your accident and responsible for your medical bills and any related pain and suffering.

Don’t try to cover the costs of your hospital stay, medical bills, and rehabilitation costs alone. If you were not responsible for your slip and fall injury, it is up to you to make the property owner accountable for his or her negligence. Bringing your premises liability case to light will not only alleviate your financial woes, but it will also help ensure that someone else will not be harmed in a similar fashion in the future. Let us help you receive the support you need and make Washington State a safer place to live for everyone.
