Do I Need a Sacramento Slip and Fall Injury Attorney?
If you were seriously injured in a slip and fall accident in Sacramento, you need a slip and fall attorney to help you recover what you are owed under the law. The experienced Sacramento attorneys at Tiemann Law Firm can help you pursue a claim against the negligent property owner that caused your harm.
Bringing a claim for injuries sustained in a slip and fall accident is an involved and complicated process that requires the help of an attorney. Much more is involved than filling out forms and other paperwork.
Dealing with insurance companies can be an overwhelming process. The insurance companies do not have your best interest in mind. Their only goal is to pay you as little as possible for your injuries. In fact, they would actually prefer to pay nothing towards your claim.
In some instances, insurance companies will blame you for your accident and wrongfully deny your claim. In other cases, an insurance company may decline to settle your claim because they do not feel that your injuries are serious or permanent in nature.
Don’t let this happen to you. Call the attorneys at Tiemann Law Firm to discuss your Sacramento slip and fall case. Without an experienced attorney by your side, you will not recover what you are fully owed for the harm you suffered due to your slip and fall accident.
The attorneys at Tiemann Law Firm can also help with your slip and fall case by making sure that all your medical bills are timely paid. In some instances, your attorney can also ensure that you are getting the care you need to recover from your injuries.
Your attorney will also collect and preserve all relevant evidence to support your claim against the wrong-doer. This may include the following:
- Obtaining recorded statements of eyewitnesses
- Taking photographs of the accident site
- Speaking to the investigating first responder
- Hiring an engineer or accident reconstructionist
- Obtaining all of your medical records
- Having you examined by a medical specialist
- Collecting paystubs and tax returns to prove lost wages
Once your attorney has all pertinent evidence, they will try to negotiate a fair settlement on your behalf. It is crucial to have an attorney represent you at this juncture because an experienced Sacramento slip and fall attorney will understand what your injuries are worth and will demand that you receive the maximum compensation for your injuries.
However, some cases will not settle for various reasons. If a settlement cannot be reached, the attorneys at Tiemann Law Firm will be ready to take your case to court, and to verdict, if necessary.

Types of Slip and Fall Accident Cases We Handle
All slip and fall cases will involve a claim of negligence. Negligence is the failure to use due care under the circumstances. Negligence can manifest itself in infinite ways, unfortunately.
A party is negligent when they breach the duty of care. For example, if a business owner does not remove ice and snow from their premises, it can be argued that they breached a duty to keep their customers safe.
In Sacramento, property owners are negligent when they fail to properly maintain or manage their property. If their negligence causes someone to be injured in a slip and fall accident, the property owner will be responsible for the injured party’s damages.
There can be several causes of slip and fall accidents. These may include:
- Spilled food and beverages in a grocery store
- Debris left on the premises
- Failure to remove snow and ice
- Wet surfaces both indoors and outdoors
- Worn out carpeting
- Defective sidewalks
- Uneven flooring
- Clutter and debris
- Loose floorboards or floor tiles
It is important to speak to a Sacramento slip and fall attorney about the circumstances of your accident to determine how the standard of care was breached by the wrongful party.
