Jacksonville Slip and Fall Lawyer
Slip and Fall Accidents: Overview of the Causes
Slip and fall is a relatively common accident which can cause serious injuries.

Water, ice, an uneven walkway, a spill and poor lighting are all conditions which leave a person in danger of a slip and fall injury. These injuries may include:

What is your Jacksonville slip and fall claim worth?
The lawyers at our firm thoroughly investigate all aspects of their clients' claims in order to determine proof of liability. At times, this may be a relatively simple task. Other times, it may be exceedingly difficult. The property owner may have fixed the hazardous situation in an attempt to avoid a lawsuit, or the scene of the accident may appear different because of a different time of day or different weather conditions. For this reason, you will need an attorney who is experienced and will work hard to evaluate the situation properly.
Assigning a monetary value to your claim is part of what any personal injury lawyer must do. This determination will be the basis for your personal injury lawsuit and/or insurance claim. If this number is too low, you will not receive enough of a settlement or judgment to pay for your continued medical expenses and other financial losses. Thus, your lawyer will need to be careful in determining a fair value for your slip and fall claim, particularly keeping attention on what expenses the future may hold.
