It happens to the best of us. We are out walking near a storefront and we slip and fall on the sidewalk or we fall inside a store because there is water on the floor or a piece of debris that we trip over. Most of the time we are so embarrassed we just get up, brush ourselves off and walk away happy in the knowledge that not many people saw the incident and most importantly, that we are not badly hurt. But what if you can’t just get up and walk away? What if you broke your leg or hurt another part of your body making it impossible for you to walk? That’s when a call to a trusted slip and fall attorney in Tamarac is your best option.

It will be up to us to fight for your rights so that you can be compensated for your medical bills, lost wages and especially for your pain and suffering.

I’ve fallen and I can’t get up—what should I do??
If you’re an elderly person, sometimes slip and fall accidents can be detrimental to your health and well-being. You may not have been in the best shape to begin with and now you’ll definitely need to go to the hospital to get treatment. Slip and fall cases can be particularly jarring, and since we often leave the scene without documenting the evidence, here are a few things you or a loved can do to help jump start your case before we determine who is culpable:
- Photograph the scene – remember to document everything later. If you’re called the police or paramedics you will probably have to file a report about the incident, which we’ll need for evidence.
- Do Not Sign Anything – the store owner might want you to sing something that excuses them from liability. Make sure to speak with one of the lawyer’s at Cameron Law Group before you sign anything.
- Keeping Track of Related Medical Costs – If you are taken to the hospital and/or need to visit a clinic on your own, it’s best to document all the expenses so that when we present your case, we will know exactly how much compensation we will need to fight for.
- Documenting Lost Wages – Injury from a slip and fall case often means that you’ll be out of work for an extended period of time. That means that you’ll need to make sure you get the compensation you deserve.
