Slip and Fall Accident Attorney in Panama City
When a Fall Isn't Your Fault
Most times when a person falls, the result is nothing more than minor bruises
and feelings of embarrassment. Slip and fall accidents are fully capable
of causing catastrophic injuries or even death. If this happens, it is
of the highest importance to determine who is at fault for the accident.
If another person is responsible for your fall, you have a right to file a
personal injury claim, which could result in a settlement or jury verdict to compensate
you for your medical expenses, your lost income and pain and suffering.
