As a result of the slip and fall accident, the client sought the advocacy of Carlson Law Firm’s personal injury attorney in Bryan, Kathryn Knotts (Claim no. 0003011515).
“Once retained, our office worked diligently to help our client obtain the necessary treatment for his traumatic injuries,” Carlson Law Firm Attorney, Kathryn Knotts said. “Just like many others, this client did not have the financial resources or health insurance to obtain the treatment he needed. By working with local physicians, we were able to help him get the surgery he needed.”
According to the U.S. Center for Disease Control (CDC), falls are the leading cause of non-fatal, medically treated injuries in the United States, highlighting the importance of maintaining properties, signage and other important aspects that can protect people from injuries associated with slip and fall accidents.
While slip and fall accidents are a common cause of injury, many occurrences are completely preventable. More than 57 percent of fall injuries are tied to slips, trips or stumbles, displaying how important property maintenance is to safeguarding people from the hardship associated with accompanying injuries.
“Although slip and fall cases can be difficult cases, our attorneys, legal assistants and team of investigators work together to fully investigate each case and establish the evidence necessary to prove our clients’ cases.” Knotts said. “It is critical that we meet with injured victims as soon as possible as often times the necessary evidence disappears or is changed shortly after the incident.“
Poor maintenance of property surfaces, inadequate clean up following spills and failed upkeep are just some examples of property management and owner negligence that could lead to serious injuries caused by a fall.
Signage to notify patrons of hazardous surfaces, steps, water or other substances are just some of the ways that property owners and managers can safeguard people from the hazards associated with fall injuries.
While other law firms may turn down slip and fall cases because of accompanying difficulties, Knotts sees each client that walks through the office door as an opportunity to extend a helping hand.
“I am so blessed to work with a firm who focuses on helping injured individuals. Every day I feel like I am able to make a difference in someone’s life. That’s the greatest reward in doing my job,” said Knotts.
After all attorney and medical bills were paid, the Carlson Law Firm’s client received more than $35,000.
