Slips & Falls
In the case of slips and falls, these types of personal injury cases typically arise if an individual has suffered an injury by slipping or falling because of unsafe conditions, such as broken or loosened floors boards, floors, or cement that was icy, wet, or oily at the time of the accident, and sidewalks, hallways, or staircases that have been neglected and/or are unkempt.
Slip & Falls Are One of the Most Common Types of Personal Injury
Slip and fall accidents can occur anywhere and there are many different ways an accident can occur, however, the most common causes we see are because of:
- wet or uneven floors;
- inadequate or lack of lighting;
- loose or missing debris such as a loose or missing floorboards or a loose floor mat;
- snow and ice.

An attorney can help you understand your rights after the accident, the claims process, and how to come to an agreeable conclusion for your claim or case.
At Johnson Livingston, it’s our job to gather evidence, prepare your case, and file a claim or lawsuit on your behalf. We take the pressure off knowing the ins and outs of the legal process and give you the guidance and advice you need to make the right choices for yourself.
Slip & Falls May Seem Minor But They Can Have a Long Term Impact on Your Quality of Life
Here at Johnson Livingston, we take our jobs personally. Our attention and passion has been and always will be focused on our clients. We give each case everything we’ve got. We care about the results our clients receive and we work hard to get to know our clients, their challenges, injury, and their ability to recover and live a good life.
Winning a slip and fall case requires the injured person to prove the liability of the property owner. Evidence must be collected and presented that shows the property owner at fault for neglecting to reasonably care for and maintain the property and therefore created an unsafe environment for others. It must be known, without doubt, that the property owner(s) were aware of the conditions being unsafe and took no action to fix the problem.
By putting our clients’ needs first we focus on doing what we do best and share your story based on facts and evidence. We communicate through every step of the process, making it easy for you to focus on getting better while we focus on your case. To do our best work and successfully tell your story, we rely on full disclosure and honesty from each of our clients.
“They were so helpful through the whole process. I was so stressed and overwhelmed when I came to them. They took care of everything and make sure my focus was on getting better!"
Steps in the Process for a Slip-and-Fall Case
Set up free consultation to meet with one of our attorneys and discuss questions and concerns you have about your case.
After discussing your case and determining if we are a good fit, we will schedule a secondary call or in-person meeting to customize an action plan and discuss the preliminaries of your case.
Following our meeting, one of our experienced personal injury paralegals will reach out and ask any follow-up questions and collect any remaining information needed to get your case started.
We will begin to establish your case. This will involve collecting information about the accident (emergency room and Doctors’ visits, insurance requests), gathering documents pictures, and information regarding the location and surrounding environment where the injury occurred, your injury and the treatment plan, etc.
Your attorney will follow up within 30 days to see how your treatment and recovery are going. Everything will be documented in detail and your progress will be tracked. We follow up with you at let once a month to see how things are going and to keep you in the loop. Once treatment has been complete then we move onto step 6.
We prepare a demand letter and any other necessary paperwork to send it out to file your claim.
We will monitor the status of your claim, and continue to follow up with you and all necessary parties to keep it going forward. This step typically takes anywhere from two weeks to 30 days.
Negotiations will follow, which can take days or weeks to complete. This is where we may settle if it makes sense for your case, move to mediation or arbitration depending on your specfic case needs.
If we choose to move forward with any case that is filed with the court (Arbitration, Jury Trial) we will take the appropriate steps until your case is complete. This process can be challenging and timely and if or when we reach this step we will take you through to completion.
Move forward with confidence and peace of mind knowing that our attorneys did everything within their power to ensure you were rightfully taken care of for the future.
