We Can Determine if You Can Recover Compensation
After being injured in a slip and fall accident, you may wonder if you qualify to secure a financial recovery. Basically, if you were injured on another party’s property due to a foreseeable hazard, you could have the basis of a personal injury claim. So, if you slipped and fell on a wet floor in a grocery store, you could argue that because the property owner did not implement warning signs, you were hurt.
To have a successful case, you must prove one of the following:
- The property owner or manager knew of a potential hazard on the premises but did not address it.
- The property owner or manager should have known about a potential hazard on their premises but did not remedy it.
Your Levittown slip and fall accident lawyer can gather evidence to prove one of the above statements. Your medical records, photos of the accident scene, and the accident report are all pieces of information that could supplement your case.

We Take Slip and Fall Accidents Seriously
One of our founding partners, Richard Jaffe, is a trained emergency medical technician (EMT). He understands how a fall can quickly transform the quality of an injured person’s life. He and our other founding partner, Stephen Cohen, also understand how difficult the financial recovery process can be.
Seek Medical Attention After Getting Hurt
After falling, your first instinct may be to brush it off and move on. However, without seeking medical care, there is no way for you to understand the severity of your condition. What you may write off as a minor bruise could actually be a symptom of a more severe condition, like internal bleeding or organ damage.
By seeking medical care after getting hurt, you can:
- Start the process of gathering evidence to support your case
- Learn more about your diagnosis and prognosis, as well as receive treatment
- Connect your injuries to the accident in question
If you are concerned about the cost of medical care, these expenses can be included in the value of your case.
Liability in a Slip and Fall Accident Claim
Liability for your slip and fall will depend on where you were hurt. Your accident lawyer may be able to hold the following parties financially accountable for your injury-related losses:
If you slipped and fell on a residential property, like an apartment complex, you could have a case against the landlord. Landlords are responsible for keeping their properties safe for both residents and their guests. This involves keeping parking lots well-lit, roping off unsafe areas, and fulfilling work orders.
Retailers must hire employees to routinely monitor their stores. This involves cleaning up spills, placing “wet floor” signs, and keeping walkways clear. If you were hurt while visiting a store, you could have a case against the corporation that owns it.
You can hold another individual responsible for your damages if you were hurt on their property. In this instance, you could file a claim with their homeowner’s insurance policy.
Depending on your circumstances, you could even hold a government agency accountable for your losses. The Law Office of Cohen & Jaffe, LLP can determine liability for your damages.
