Portland Slip & Fall Attorney
Was your slip and fall accident caused by negligence?
A slip and fall accident can occur when something on the ground is spilled, a floor is slippery, wet or damaged. Often times a slip and fall is also termed a "trip and fall", due to uneven or damaged pavement or surface. While not all of these types of accidents are due to any negligence, it can occur if there was insufficient care taken by the owner of the premises where the fall took place. To properly evaluate any injury claim you may have sustained, it is important to contact Attorney Herron to assist you with sorting out the incident.
When an accident like this occurs, an individual is often embarrassed and merely wants to get up and leave the place. However, if a personal injury was incurred during the fall, it should be immediately reported to someone on the premises and any witnesses should be identified. Minor details on these types of cases are important to document to preserve your rights. You can trust Portland personal injury lawyer Bartley E. Herron from Herron Law, LLC to obtain all of the needed information to properly and completely document any injuries and losses you may have suffered due to this fall.
