Slip and Fall

Slip & Fall Attorneys for Civil Litigation

Every year in New Hampshire, thousands of people are injured in slip and fall accidents. There are myriad scenarios in which a person might sustain a slip and fall injury – sidewalks that are not shoveled properly, stairwells with inadequate lighting, slippery floors, and so on. These accidents can happen anywhere, inside or outside, at a residence or a business, and it’s important to know what to do if it happens to you.

The Difficulty of Proving Negligence

Slip and fall cases can be among the toughest to win. Often there are no witnesses if someone slips, trips, and falls, so it can come down to your word against the word of whomever is responsible. Insurance companies are notorious for not taking these types of cases as seriously as others, since it’s a relatively easy method of insurance fraud. Also, some causes of such injuries are temporary, like a slippery floor, which can be cleaned up before the scene can be preserved. That’s why it is vital to contact an experienced attorney right away, while everything is still fresh in your mind, to prepare for your civil litigation. A slip and fall attorney, like the ones at the law firm of Burns, Bryant, Cox, Rockefeller & Durkin, will immediately start gathering evidence to help you prove your case and get the compensation you deserve.

It can sometimes make the victim feel like they were clumsy or foolish.
