Do I need a slip and fall injury lawyer?
If somebody else’s negligence caused your slip and fall injury, you’re probably reeling with questions as to how you can move forward. One question you shouldn’t even have to consider is whether or not you need a personal injury lawyer to review the facts of your case.
The negligence of another party should not have caused your injury in the first place. An experienced attorney will be able to work to secure the compensation you need to cover your lost income, medical bills, and pain and suffering. Those who attempt to go through the legal system alone usually do not receive the compensation that their case merits. We discourage people from attempting to handle their claims without an experienced attorney by their side.
It can be overwhelming to try to get the compensation you deserve while also recovering from a serious injury. A compassionate attorney at Hach & Rose, LLP can carry out the difficult tasks required to win the compensation and peace of mind for your case.

Types of Cases We Handle
The personal injury lawyers at Hach & Rose, LLP handle a variety of slip and fall injuries. Below are some of the most common causes of slip and fall injuries:
- Slick flooring: Unfortunately, falls due to slick flooring are exceedingly common. Employees, housekeepers, and staff at any place of business are expected to mark wet floors clearly as part of standard safety protocols. We do not tolerate excuses for wet flooring that has been left unmarked or insufficiently labeled.
- Loose or uneven carpeting: A safe environment entails that features of the building are up to code and free of potentially dangerous areas. Negligence comes into play when the owner or employees are aware of the loose or uneven carpeting and either do not attempt to fasten the carpet down or do not put up signs for visitors or guests as a warning. Victims of such mistakes are protected and an experienced personal injury lawyer can determine liability for such a case.
- Cracked sidewalks: Falling on the pavement as a result of a cracked sidewalk can cause severe ankle, knee, and leg injuries. A property owner is required to keep sidewalks reasonably safe and free from potentially dangerous accidents from occurring. It can be difficult to track down who is liable for an injury that occurred on public sidewalk although an experienced attorney can help determine who is at fault for such an accident.
- Insufficient lighting: Buildings and sidewalks must be properly lit for guests and visitors. An injury sustained as a result of poor or insufficient lighting is not something we take lightly as it is entirely preventable. Building and property owners maintain the responsibility of keeping well-lit corridors, sidewalks, and rooms as part of their standard safety protocols.
- Debris or other walkway obstructions: Obstacles such as construction equipment, cleaning supplies or miscellaneous items like boxes or crates should always be kept clear from pathways. To knowingly leave an item that could be tripped over is to act negligently. We are prepared to protect your claim in the event you fell as a result of obstructed walkways.
Slip and Fall Statistics
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, falls accounted for 5% of job-related fatalities for women and 11% of fatalities of men. The National Floor Safety Institute reported that the leading cause of hospital emergency visits at 21.3% was due to falls. Slips and falls were reported to be the number one cause of workers’ compensation claims and are the primary cause of lost days from work.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration reported that the common causes of spills from wet products on walking surfaces are water, mud, grease, oil, food, and blood. Dry products that cause surfaces to become slippery are dust, powders, wood, granules, and plastic wrapping. Common causes of trips include “uncovered hoses, cables, wires, or extension cords across aisles or walkways.” Crumpled carpets, irregulars in walking surfaces, changes in elevation, and irregular steps are also common causes of trip injuries according to OSHA.
The National Safety Council reported “falls are the leading cause of unintentional death in the U.S., accounting for nearly 32,000 deaths in 2014. In the year 2014, over 31,000 people died in a fall in the workplace, and 600 died and 47,000 were injured in 2013.
