Why Get Help from an Oklahoma Slip and Fall Attorney?
If you suffer a slip and fall injury, you typically will file a claim with the property owner’s insurance company. Unfortunately, if you do not have a lawyer at your side, the insurer may try to take advantage of you. For instance, the insurer may ask you to give a statement that it eventually tries to use against you, or the insurer may try to get you to accept a settlement offer that fails to compensate you for all of your losses.
This is why you should get help from an experienced personal injury lawyer from Cain Law Office. Our founding attorney, Monty Cain, is a member of the National Association of Top 100 Trial Lawyers and Million Dollar Advocates Forum. He understands how insurance companies work and knows how to protect our clients’ rights. You can count on Monty and the rest of our legal team to fight for full and fair compensation for you.
When we take on your slip and fall case, we will focus on your health. We will help you to get the medical care you need as you recover from your injuries, and we will also relieve you of the stress that comes from dealing with the insurance company.
Our team will immediately investigate your slip and fall accident and gather all evidence that sheds light on how your fall happened. We will also carefully review your medical records and work with experts to assess the nature and severity of your slip and fall injuries and their impact on your life. Armed with this information, we will aggressively negotiate with the insurance company and pursue a timely settlement of your case. If the insurance company refuses to treat you fairly, we will be ready to fight for you at trial.
We never charge upfront fees. Instead, we represent personal injury clients on a contingency fee basis. This means that you will pay us only if we recover compensation for you.
What Are Common Causes of Slip and Falls in Oklahoma?
In most cases, negligent property owners in Oklahoma cause slip and falls. They may fail to properly maintain their premises and allow dangerous conditions to exist without adequately warning visitors. Some of the most common hazards that contribute to slip and falls are:
- Broken stairs
- Broke or loose handrails
- Torn or frayed carpeting
- Loose flooring tiles
- Slick surfaces
- Dim lighting
- Uneven pavement
- Cluttered walkways.
Cain Law Office will put our investigators on your case right away and preserve, gather and review all evidence that tells the story of what happened to you. This evidence may include:
- Photos of the accident scene
- Witness statements
- Surveillance video footage
- Past reports of falls on the property
- Violations of local building codes
- Violations of the property owner’s own policies.
Our office will also identify all responsible parties and available sources of compensation. For instance, if your slip and fall occurs on the freshly mopped floor in an office building, the building owner, a tenant who leased office space or a vendor that provided cleaning services may all share responsibility for your injuries.
What Compensation Can You Recover in an Oklahoma Slip and Fall Claim?
Slip and fall victims can suffer a wide range of injuries, including head and brain injuries, back and spine injuries, fractures and soft tissue damage. Our law firm will carefully evaluate the injuries in your case and their impact on your life, and we will aggressively pursue damages that may include:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Lost income and diminished earning ability
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Punitive damages (if appropriate)
- Wrongful death damages (if your loved one died due to a slip and fall).
The attorneys of Cain Law Office realize that no amount of money can undo the harm that you have suffered in a slip and fall. However, the funds you recover in a premises liability or wrongful death claim can allow you to get the medical care you need and help you to move forward with your life. We will work tirelessly for you and pursue the compensation you deserve.
