Slip and fall accidents are more common than you might think. In many cases, these accidents occur due to negligent property owners and are not the fault of the injured party. In this blog post, Tiemann Law Firm delves into specifics regarding these types of accidents and why hiring an attorney experienced in slip and fall cases is crucial.

Current Statistics Regarding Slip and Fall Accidents:

According to the National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI), slips and falls account for over 1 million emergency room visits annually in the United States alone. Moreover, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that falls are the leading cause of both fatal and nonfatal injuries among older adults.

Consequences of Slip and Fall Accidents

A wide range of injuries can result from these accidents, including sprains, strains, fractures, concussions, and spinal cord injuries. The recovery process for such injuries can be lengthy and expensive, often requiring medical treatment and time off work.

Why Legal Representation Matters in Slip and Fall Cases

Why You Should Hire a Slip and Fall Injury Lawyer

  1. Experienced personal injury lawyers understand the complexities of premises liability law and can navigate the legal system for their clients.
  2. A lawyer will conduct a thorough investigation into the circumstances surrounding the accident. This may involve collecting evidence such as witness statements, surveillance footage, and maintenance records, which are all crucial to building a strong case.
  3. Insurance companies often try to minimize payouts to accident victims. A lawyer will negotiate with the insurance company on behalf of the injured party to ensure they receive fair compensation for their damages.
  4. In some cases, litigation may be necessary to secure a favorable outcome. A skilled lawyer will represent their client in court, presenting arguments and advocating for their rights.
  5. Hiring a lawyer can bring peace of mind and make the situation a little less overwhelming, allowing the victim to prioritize their health and well-being.

Slip and fall injuries can have serious consequences, both physically and financially. In the face of such accidents, hiring a lawyer is essential for protecting one’s rights and seeking fair compensation.

I sat down and met with Jelena Tiemann about my vehicle accident.I presented all of my documentation to her in which she gave me her assessment.Although the Tiemann Law Firm wont be representing me because my settlement offer was pretty good she was very clear,forward and professional about what she felt could and couldn't be done.I recommend this law firm to anyone who needs a helping hand at fighting a case where you don't have to worry about the outcome not going in your favor. Please don't review this business if you received a freebie for writing this review, or if you're connected in any way to the owner or employees.

The Tiemanns were referred to me by a friend and I am exceptionally happy with the service I received. I had never been in an accident before. I had no idea what to do. Jelena verbally explained how everything would work to me, and she and Peter handled everything. I didn't have to lift a finger once. They went above and beyond for me and I am extremely grateful. I pray I won't ever need this type of assistance again, but I will definitely be referring them to friends and family.

I highly recommend The Tiemann Law Firm! I had never before been in a situation where I sustained injury and had to seek legal representation. I was nervous, traumatized, and had no idea what to expect. Jelena, Peter, and their staff walked me through each step of the process. They explained everything in detail. They patiently answered all my questions, responded quickly to every email, text message, phone call, etc. I felt totally prepared for each new phase of the legal process. Furthermore, they were fearless in their defense of me. In certain situations, when I felt attacked or scared my attorney protected me like I was family. Their diligence, honesty, integrity, and compassion provided a true sense of healing and closure for my family and I. The Tiemann Law Firm accomplished more for me than I ever thought possible and I am forever grateful.
