“I fell and need a lawyer.” If you have had a fall and are not sure whether or not you need a lawyer, there are several things to take into consideration. With personal injury claims, such as “slip and fall” cases, liability is often unclear and finding the best lawyer may be worth the cost.

Having a fall can happen to anyone, no matter what age and in any weather conditions. In fact at some point in most people’s lives they will have a fall and it will more than likely not be their fault!
“Premises Liability” refers to a level of safety maintenance required for buildings, homes, parking lots, and even walkways–for people who travel on their premises. This means that if you’re injured on someone else’s property due to their negligence, you could be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost time at work, and much more.
You won’t necessarily need a lawyer for all types of fall cases. If you missed a step, slipped on the stairs, tripped over your own coat or clothing, or you reached for something like a handrail or your phone and lost your balance…a premise owner is not legally responsible for these things. But for something such as a poorly constructed staircase, broken handrails, etc., you’re looking at a premise liability case.
As we mentioned, accidents involving falling, slipping, or tripping are generally considered “premises liability” cases. Some examples of premise liability cases include:
