Slip and Falls
Why hire a slip and fall attorney?
Premises owners are often evasive and unreliable following a slip and fall on their property. As an experienced personal injury firm, DLF has seen premises owners avoid fall victims, blame the victim, evade identification, deny liability, and more. Diab Law Firm will grab the premises owner’s attention and fight your legal battle for you while you concentrate on your health.
How much do you charge?
Diab Law Firm charges nothing up-front, and you will pay nothing unless the Firm wins your case. DLF will advance all costs, even the cost of litigation, so you will never go out-of-pocket for your case.
What can I recover in my slip and fall claim?
We will construct a damage model for your case and among the damages, we can help you recover are:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Loss of companionship
- Pain and suffering
Call to discuss your individualized damage model. The consultation will be free.
How long will it take to resolve my slip and fall case?
It depends. The length of a case turns on many factors, such as the facts of the accident, the insurance companies involved, the extent of injuries, whether litigation is required, and many other factors.
Do I have a case?
You might. The viability of each case depends on factors too numerous to list here. There are a number of factors among these unique to slip and fall cases. Please call for a free, no-obligation case assessment.
The premises owner and/or their insurer are denying my claim. Can you still help?
Very possibly so. The expertise of an attorney with knowledge of the industry and of our justice system can turn the tides in your favor. Call to see if Diab Law Firm can turn your claim denial into another successful case.
I did not inform the premises or business owner, manager, or supervisor of my fall and therefore did not receive an incident or accident report. Do I still have a case?
You might. While incident and crash reports constitute useful documentation of the accident and may help resolve the matter, the lack of a report does not necessarily doom your case. Call to see if Diab Law Firm can turn your claim into a successful case even without an incident or crash report.
There is a mistake on the accident or incident report. Do I still have a case?
Though not usually helpful, mistakes on accident and incident reports do not necessarily doom your case. DLF can help you overcome these errors.
Will my case go to court?
Probably not. DLF strives to resolve cases as early as possible to minimize expenses and help clients quickly. Though the Firm prepares every case for the possibility of trial, most cases, even those that require some litigation, do not proceed to trial.
Should I return to work?
This question invokes both legal and medical issues. Under Texas law, a claimant generally bears a duty to mitigate damages. In other words, you probably should return to work if you can. However, if your doctor due to medical necessity issues instructions limiting your motions at work or prohibiting you from working altogether, your legal duty to mitigate does not obligate you to continue working in the same way or at all, respectively. Always request your doctor’s instructions in writing.
