Slip & Fall Accidents
It can happen in an instant. You slip and hurt yourself falling in a grocery store, restaurant, gym, or office building; or you fall down a poorly lighted stairway or are hurt by defective equipment or poor building design. Please don’t assume that your slip and fall injury was your fault.
If you were injured on someone else’s property, whether it was an apartment building, corporation, government agency, or store, know this: it was someone’s responsibility to keep the environment safe to ensure that your accident shouldn’t have happened, and they failed to do so.

Questions about Slip and Fall Injuries
Below are questions we commonly answer from people who are suffering from slip and fall accident injuries.
After being injured, what should I do first?
You should immediately seek a doctor’s attention. Go to the hospital. Don’t underestimate the severity of your injury. Even though you may not feel injured right now, you will eventually feel the extent of your injuries. The symptoms of injuries like whiplash and concussions may not appear until hours after your accident. Don’t wait; seek medical help immediately after your slip and fall accident. See a doctor and then call a personal injury attorney. If you call Dianne Sawaya, she will not only provide legal assistance, but she will also seek medical help for you.
Who am I filing the slip and fall injury claim against?
This depends on the circumstances of your fall. You could be filing the claim against an insurance company, property owner, or contractor. When a property owner fails to take steps to keep you safe, they should be held responsible. A property owner can be an individual, a corporation, or even a government agency. And commercial premises often are owned by big corporations and are protected by big insurance companies with lots of lawyers. You need our help.
At the Law Offices of Dianne Sawaya, we know that this isn’t the easiest thing to understand. All you know is that you fell, you’re injured, and you need help. Who you’re filing your claim against is the least of your worries. Please don’t worry about it. Focus on getting better; call Dianne Sawaya.
Do I have a personal injury claim if I slipped on ice?
Snow and ice are common causes of slip and fall accidents, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that you have a personal injury claim. This is why it is very important to contact an attorney soon after your accident. In order to investigate the cause of your fall, we’ll need to collect photo evidence of the scene. If snow and ice were a factor in your fall, we’ll want to document that before it melts and the environment changes. We’ll also want to contact any witnesses of your fall. If you’ve tripped and fallen on snow or ice, and your accident has left you with injuries, please contact our premises liability attorneys today so we can more definitively answer this question.
