We seek to obtain maximum compensation to which you are entitled for medical expenses, future treatment or rehabilitation costs, lost wages and pain and suffering.

Even though you may have contributed to the reason for your injury, you may still be entitled to receive compensation. Contributory negligence is where you have contributed to the injury by not looking out for your own safety. In cases where contributory negligence is involved, it will impact the amount of compensation based on the degree of which you contributed to the accident.
Immediately seeking the advice of a lawyer will be to your advantage when you have been injured in a slip and fall accident. They will advise you on the steps you must take to ensure the best case for the compensation you are entitled to can be prepared.
