Slip and Fall Injury
Until it happened to your family, you probably never gave much thought to how serious a slip-and-fall could be or how easily it can occur. Though these accidents are the stuff of cartoons and slapstick comedy, there is simply nothing funny about the real-life injuries that victims suffer: broken bones, bulging discs, head trauma, and other serious, long-term damage. The effects on your health could change everything from your ability to do the things you love to your financial security. Getting hurt in a slip-and-fall doesn’t make you a careless person – it just means that you were unfortunate enough to be the one to suffer because of another person’s careless actions.
Slip-and-falls can be just as serious as any other type of accident. To protect your family, you need the support of an attorney who takes your situation seriously. At Console & Hollawell, we’ve helped clients throughout Pennsylvania, from the big cities like Philadelphia to the rural towns, get compensation and care. Don’t wait any longer to get help. Call (215) 225-2040 today.
There’s No Reason Not to Pursue a Claim
Sometimes slip-and-fall victims are reluctant to pursue claims. They worry about the extra “hassle” of dealing with a claim. Often, victims mistakenly think that their injuries will go away on their own or that they can just “tough it out” in spite of the pain. Beneath these excuses is often a fear of stigma. If a victim files a legitimate claim, will people think of them as greedy or “sue-happy”? Is a victim doing something wrong by filing a claim?
Not at all! When you file a personal injury claim, it’s so you can be compensated for the consequences of someone else’s wrongdoing. It’s not your fault that store employees left unmarked spills on the floor, or that a poorly maintained sidewalk or commercial parking lot developed deep cracks or potholes. You’re not seeking a jackpot – you’re seeking justice for the losses you suffered because property owners failed to uphold their legal responsibilities. It’s just as important to hold people accountable for civil law-breaking as it is to hold them responsible for criminal activities, especially if someone suffered because of the negligence.
Take Your Life Back
When you suffered a slip-and-fall, you didn’t have a choice in what would happen to you or how your injuries would affect your life. Now you do have a choice. You could accept the unfair consequences on your life and wait around hoping that your injuries will heal, or you can stand up for your rights and make sure you are getting the care you need to get better. Filing a personal injury claim doesn’t mean that you are “sue-happy.” It means you are doing everything you can to make sure that your injuries don’t define you or destroy your family’s quality of life.
Pursuing a personal injury claim when you have been hurt in a slip-and-fall is empowering. It puts you back in control of your future, but don’t think that you have to do it alone.
