Slip and Fall Attorneys Utah

Slip and Fall Attorneys Utah

The National Safety Council found that slip and fall accidents are the most common of work-related injuries in the United States. Over the years, many people have received proper coverage for accidents at their respective places of employment through workers’ compensation. This is why you should talk to an Accident Lawyer before a slip and fall accident happens.

However, there are some cases in which the employer isn’t necessarily at fault. When a third party or unaffiliated person is responsible for the fall, obtaining the money you rightfully deserve can become a tricky matter.

Imagine the following: a worker for a painting company is on top of a ladder painting the side of a home in Park City, Utah. The landscaping company that takes care of the lawn accidentally hits the worker’s ladder, thus causing him to fall.

OBTAINING THE MONEY YOU DESERVE AFTER AN UNFORTUNATE SLIP AND FALL ACCIDENT

While the worker’s painting company will cover the majority of expenses for the slip and fall incident, there are others that fall under the category of “pain and suffering” which wouldn’t be properly accounted for. In the aforementioned situation—and those similar in nature—the victim is left to suffer.

Fortunately, working with a team of personal injury attorneys can bring about justice in a quick and timely manner. Filing a lawsuit against the landscaping company, in this instance, would help the wounded worker receive full compensation for his or her troubles.

CRITICAL STEPS TO TAKE AFTER BEING IN AN ACCIDENT

If you’ve been in a car accident, there are critical steps you need to take. Stumbling past these steps instead of working through them could mean the difference between receiving compensation or not. If you find yourself on the receiving end of an accident, these critical steps need to happen before contacting your lawyer to guide you through the rest of the case.

On Site

After you have been in a car accident, if possible, move the cars to a safe location. If you can’t move the car, turn on your emergency lights so that other drivers know to avoid you. Once you are in a safe location, call 911. Next, check to see if everyone is okay. If someone is injured, let the 911 operator know the severity of the injury and take instructions for what you should do until help gets to you.

Vital Information

As soon as all passengers in the cars are safe be sure to exchange information. You need the insurance and contact information of the other drivers involved in the accident. They will also need your information as well, so offer it up readily.

Be sure you keep your insurance information in your glove compartment. After you have exchanged information, get your phones out and document the scene. Document the weather conditions, the location of lights, stop signs and all traffic control devices. Take pictures of the damage done to both cars.

Police Report

It is necessary to get a police report after the car accident. If you don’t agree on what occurred in the accident, a police report is vital to your claim. After filing for a police report, get a claim number from your insurance company. Ask your insurance company to guide you throughout the process. If it is necessary, hire a lawyer to help you in the case.

About the Author

People who want a lot of Bull go to a Butcher. People who want results navigating a complex legal field go to a Lawyer that they can trust. That’s where I come in. I am Michael Anderson, an Attorney in the Salt Lake area focusing on the needs of the Average Joe wanting a better life for him and his family. I’m the Lawyer you can trust. I grew up in Utah and love it here. I am a Father to three, a Husband to one, and an Entrepreneur. I understand the feelings of joy each of those roles bring, and I understand the feeling of disappointment, fear, and regret when things go wrong. I attended the University of Utah where I received a B.A. degree in 2010 and a J.D. in 2014. I have focused my practice in Wills, Trusts, Real Estate, and Business Law. I love the thrill of helping clients secure their future, leaving a real legacy to their children. Unfortunately when problems arise with families. I also practice Family Law, with a focus on keeping relationships between the soon to be Ex’s civil for the benefit of their children and allowing both to walk away quickly with their heads held high. Before you worry too much about losing everything that you have worked for, before you permit yourself to be bullied by your soon to be ex, before you shed one more tear in silence, call me. I’m the Lawyer you can trust.
