The Slip and Fall: Handbook (Paperback)
The Ultimate Guide to your Slip and Fall Case...Slip and fall accidents will injure millions of Americans this year. Nearly 20,000 people will die as a result of their injuries and several hundred thousand more will suffer permanent disability. Slip and fall accidents are the second highest cause of accidental death among the elderly. The effect of fall accident injuries can be catastrophic to the victims resulting in substantially changed life styles and monetary loss. Despite the frequent nature of slip and fall accidents they maintain a reputation of being the most difficult to win of all personal injury cases. Often shunned by trial lawyers and undervalued by defendants and their insurance carriers, these cases are characteristic of personal injury litigation that demands a full knowledge of the law and technology if litigation is to be successful. If you or a loved one has been injured in a slip and fall accident, this book is written for you. This book details the process from the initial accident to liability issues and how to successfully fight for what you deserve.
