Slip and fall accidents can be just as common as car accidents because they are not limited to roadways. Slip and fall injuries can occur anywhere and at any time from your favorite restaurant to your neighborhood grocery store. If you have had an unexpected slip and fall, the owner or operator of the establishment or business where it occurred may have been negligent. It is the duty of the owner/operated to make the premises safe for the patrons. It is likely that the cause of the fall was known to the owner of the business. The causes of these injuries are likely to be from cracked floors and tiles, excess water from condensation or water leaks. If you slipped and fell be sure to note and document the conditions of the floor such as whether the carpeting was frayed or whether there were warning cones clearly marking a slippery floor.

Faulty pipes may spring a leak and flood your entire home. Sometimes damage to your home may be caused by a third party such as a roofer or plumber who improperly installs new equipment or makes faulty repairs to your home. Oftentimes, the insurance company you have been paying to help with repairs and compensation turns on your and denies your claim for reasons our of your control. An insurance policy is known as a contract of adhesion, that is a contract where one party to it has a greater advantage over another. Typically the disadvantaged party is the homeowner who diligently pays ever increasing premiums assuming the insurance company will help restore your family’s home. When filing a claim, the insurance company forces the homeowner to comply with a long list of post loss obligations meant to make filing a claim a very difficult process. The homeowner is forced to file a number of complicated documents within a short time frame. Homeowners may also be forced to be interrogated by the insurance adjuster during a recorded statement and/or examinations under oath where every question asked is designed to illicit information that will be used to deny the claim.
