An experienced lawyer with GTW Lawyers can guide you through the legal process of a slip-and-fall case, fighting for your rights while you focus on recovery. We will work to hold the at-fault party responsible for your injuries.

What Should I Do After a Slip and Fall Accident?

Immediately following a slip and fall accident, you should seek medical attention, especially for serious injuries. Take photos and videos of your injuries and accident scene. Contact an attorney to help you recover compensation for your losses.

Investigating the Accident Scene

Our slip-and-fall accident attorneys will begin collecting evidence immediately. Whether your accident was caused by uneven flooring, wet tiles, or broken pavement, we will review the scene and find evidence that proves the property owner was aware or should have been aware of the potential dangers. Personal injury lawsuits require clear evidence, and our law firm works diligently to find it.

Common Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents in Milwaukee

Slips and falls occur all across Milwaukee and can happen for a variety of reasons, including:

  • An uneven walking surface
  • A cluttered walking path
  • A dangerous condition in a store, like a wet floor

Milwaukee slip and fall lawyers handle many accidents that happen every day. Property owners are responsible for keeping visitors reasonably safe, which means promptly removing any hazards before someone falls.

Injuries Resulting from Slip and Fall Accidents

Sadly, many slip-and-fall accidents result in more than just a bump or bruise, often leaving victims with life-threatening injuries. Some of the more common injuries our law firm sees include:

  • Broken bones
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Injuries to eyes, nose, and teeth
  • Fractured wrists

These injuries can leave victims with extensive medical bills and time missed from work while they recover. Our personal injury lawyers can help you recover financial compensation for your losses.

Who Is Liable for Your Injuries?

In a premises liability case, a property manager has a legal duty to provide reasonable care to lawful visitors. Injury victims who were hurt by a hazard on someone else’s property may be owed compensation for their damages. An experienced slip-and-fall lawyer can prove liability cases if you sustain injuries at a business, someone’s home, your workplace, or another public location.

Demand Compensation for Your Slip and Fall Injuries

Wisconsin slip and fall compensation can come from property owners responsible for any injuries on their property. In a slip and fall injury case, victims can seek compensation for the following:

  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future earning potential
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Medical expenses for ambulance rides, hospital stays, doctor appointments, and other medical bills related to the injury
  • Future medical expenses

A slip-and-fall lawyer with GTW Lawyers can review your personal injury case during a free consultation to determine how we can seek compensation for your medical bills, lost income, and more.
