Surrey Trip and Fall Lawyer

A simple trip to the store can destabilize you for a long time– perhaps the rest of your life– if you suffer a serious trip and fall on the premises. You could remain out of work for weeks or months while recuperating, worrying about how you will pay your bills and keep a roof over your head and food on the table. Property owners must keep their premises safe, and a lawyer will protect your interests, and hold them accountable. Our Preszler team of Surrey personal injury lawyers can help you receive the compensation you deserve. In addition, our dedicated staff at our trip and fall law firm has helped clients for more than half a century.

Trip and fall injuries

Many trip and fall injuries are relatively minor. Others are more serious, resulting in bone fractures, soft tissue injuries and severe bruising. Then there are the injuries resulting in permanent impairment or disability; including traumatic brain injury or damage to the spinal cord. These victims may never return to work and require lifelong care.

After seeking medical treatment, it is wise to consult a trip and fall lawyer to learn about your options in filing your claim. Never agree to an insurance company settlement before obtaining legal advice. Insurance adjusters want to settle a claim for as little as possible. What seems like a reasonable amount may prove too little for a person with serious injuries. A lawyer knows the fair amount of a settlement for the type of injury suffered by the client as well as the prognosis.

Commercial properties and trip and fall

Many accidents happen on commercial properties, including large chain stores, restaurants, supermarkets and mall outlets. Indoors, such as a grocery store, accidents may happen because employees did not put up warning signs or cordon off recently mopped areas. Poor lighting in stairwells or uneven stairs or flooring may cause patrons to fall. Outdoors, parking lots and pavement may contain holes, or uneven surfaces. In winter, owners may allow ice and snow to accumulate, putting customers and passers-by at risk.

Collect evidence

If injured in a trip and fall accident, try to photograph the scene with your smartphone for use as evidence. If that is not possible, try to have a relative or friend photograph the scene as soon as possible. The more evidence available, the better the case for premises liability.
