Pursuing And Protecting Your Rights After A Slip-And-Fall Injury

Who knew that a slip-and-fall could be so painful? After experiencing the pain and suffering of a fall, you may wonder how your mounting medical bills will get paid. Under Washington slip-and-fall laws, you have the absolute right to hold a negligent party responsible for your injuries.

Putnam Lieb Potvin, a premier personal injury law firm in Olympia, has protected the rights of the injured for over 30 years. Whether your injury happened at work, at a park or while out shopping, our experienced lawyers know how to construct your legal claim to seek maximum financial compensation.

Helping You Seek Maximum Compensation For Your Injuries

When negligent actions or inactions create a dangerous condition, a slip-and-fall accident can happen. This type of accident commonly occurs at poorly maintained:

  • Parking lots
  • Shopping centers
  • Workplaces
  • Private property

At Putnam Lieb Potvin, our attorneys can skillfully guide you through the legal process of a personal injury claim. We will relentlessly defend your rights and seek maximum compensation for sprains, broken bones and trips that lead to brain injuries and other traumas.

Paying Attention Can Pay Dividends

What conditions did you notice at the time of your fall? Did the store have merchandise on the floor that was not stocked correctly? Was the wet floor at your workplace unnoticeable because there were no caution signs set out? As soon as possible after a fall, write down your account of the accident, noting:

  • Walking surface conditions
  • Unforeseen obstacles
  • Distracting influences

This information will help build your injury case. Remember that in most cases you have three years from the date of injury to file a claim against the responsible party. If the at-fault party is the federal government, the statute of limitations is two years. If the injury happened at work, you will also need to file a workers' compensation claim within one year of the injury.

Putnam Lieb Potvin can help you recover damages so that you can move on from your accident. Contact us online or call 360-596-9539 or 877-551-2871 today for a free initial consultation.
