Did Someone's Negligence Cause You To Fall?

Just like that, your feet went out from under you. Maybe it was on a poorly lit stairway, an unshoveled sidewalk or an obstructed walkway. Wherever it was, you were on the ground, in pain, with injuries whose extent became clear only later. Sound familiar?

Many of these injuries could have been avoided through proper maintenance and design. Unfortunately, property owners' negligence has now caused you harm. Nathan J. Stuckey and his firm stand ready to assist you, as we have hundreds of clients in Springfield and throughout Ohio. Nathan is a tenacious lawyer, an attentive and careful listener, and he knows how to get the justice you deserve.

Common Hazards

Slip-and-fall accidents can happen anywhere. Some of the most common scenarios we see are:

  • Uneven or poorly maintained sidewalks
  • Stairs with inadequate railings, tread or contouring
  • Raised surface accidents
  • Slippery surfaces, both indoor and outdoor
  • Construction site accidents, often related to debris or equipment

Just because these incidents are common does not diminish their seriousness. We will use every legal option at our disposal to ensure that you get what you need.

Injuries Can Be Significant

Despite its innocuous name, a slip-and-fall injury can be quite serious. Depending on the nature of your fall and what surface you land on, you could suffer from:

  • Broken bones
  • Lacerations
  • Contusions and internal bleeding
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Neck and spinal cord damage

Insurance companies will try to minimize these injuries, but we can help you get appropriate medical documentation to detail the full extent of it. This will be critical in the settlement phase and potential courtroom proceedings.

Fast Action Is Essential

After a fall, the property owners will often try to remove evidence of the hazard through some kind of hasty repair. By contacting us as soon as possible, we will be able to investigate the accident site and document it as it was at the time of your injury. In addition, we can interview eyewitnesses, obtain security camera footage and procure other corroborating evidence. These elements will ensure the largest possible slip-and-fall settlement.
