Typical Slip and Falls Cause Exceptional Challenges 

Slip and falls are entirely preventable, but very common in the United States. Falls caused 33% of all nonfatal injuries in 2020 and were the third leading cause of accidental death in 2021. While this accident might be considered typical, the impact on victims and their families can feel exceptionally challenging. Injuries may require surgery, physical therapy, or caretaking assistance. It could take weeks or months to fully recover. Luckily, Keller Postman’s personal injury experts are here to support you. We’ll fight property owners and push your case forward as quickly as possible so that you can get the relief you need.

Common Causes of Slip and falls 

You have a right to safety when you enter a private or public building. And property owners have a duty to maintain their premises and warn visitors about potential hazards. If any of the common factors below led to your accident, our experienced slip and fall attorneys can help you establish property owner’s liability and pursue the compensation you deserve:  

  • Wet or Slippery Surfaces 
  • Icy or Snowy Conditions 
  • Uneven Pavement or Sidewalk 
  • Inadequate Parking Lot or Stairwell Lighting  
  • Defective Flooring or Broken Handrails 
  • Unmarked or Inadequately Marked Hazards 
  • Falling Objects  

Eliminating Financial Barriers to Justice

We’ve removed the financial barriers so that you can access the expert legal representation you need to win your case:

What is Your Slip and Fall Claim Worth? 

Many factors can influence the value of your slip and fall claim, but the two most critical issues include: 

  1. The Injuries: The biggest driver of the value of slip and fall claims is the extent of the victims’ injuries. It’s critical that you seek treatment immediately after a slip and fall to get an understanding of what your injuries are, and how long it may take you to fully recover from them. It’s more difficult to get fair compensation for soft tissue injuries (like bruises, sprains, and lacerations) than for “hard” injuries (like broken bones) or permanent injuries. But even soft tissue injuries can cause disfigurement, temporary disablement, loss of work, and other major disruptions to your life and wellbeing. Our attorneys will work to maximize your compensation, no matter the nature of your injuries.
  2. Premises Liability: You’ll need to establish that the property or store owner failed to take steps to ensure their premises was safe for you and other visitors to win your case. You’ll also need to prove that you were alert and aware of your surroundings when the accident occurred (in other words, that you weren’t behaving carelessly). Property owners’ insurance adjusters do not want to pay slip and fall victims large sums of money. They will thoroughly investigate the incident to find facts they can use to reduce the value of your claim.  

But Keller Postman’s attorneys have defeated the most powerful defense counsel in the world. We’ll conduct our own investigations, interview witnesses, and gather evidence so that you get the compensation you deserve for your accident.

FAQs

How much is my personal injury case worth?

The value of your case depends on several factors. How bad are your injuries? How much money have you spent on medical bills? And did you lose any wages because of the injury? Lastly, who is responsible for what happened? To better understand how much your case might be worth, you should talk to a lawyer. An attorney can look at all the details of your situation and give you an estimate. And don’t worry, the initial assessment won’t cost you anything.

Please collect any available medical records, police reports, and images of injuries or property damage and share them with us. Do not delete or destroy anything. Keep all your digital photos, emails, text messages, or social media messages, as it could impact your claim.

Yes, there are, and they are called Statutes of limitations or SOLs. SOLs set a time limit to file your claim. In Massachusetts, it is usually three years. If a deadline is approaching, respond promptly to our urgent requests to protect your claim.

We recommend keeping your social media posts private and discussing the case only with us and your spouse, if you’re married. Communications between you and Keller Postman LLC are protected by attorney-client privilege. That means our conversations are private and protected. But be careful when talking to other people about your case. Those conversations might be questioned, so be cautious.

We charge no fees unless we win your case, so you will owe nothing until we get you compensation. After that, we charge the standard 33% “contingency fee.” This means that if—and only if—we successfully resolve your case, 33% of your recovery will go to our firm for our services. If we cannot get you a favorable outcome, you will not have to pay us anything.

Keller Postman supports clients nationwide with attorneys in a dozen states, including in Boston, Massachusetts. If you have been injured and need a personal injury attorney in Massachusetts, reach out to Keller Postman today.
