Slip-and-fall surgery claim cases are a type of case where insurance companies will fight you every step of the way. The reason they fight you is that they have a built-in defense, “Why weren’t you paying attention?” They don’t care about any of the circumstances surrounding it whether there is a defect in the sidewalk or whether there’s a hole in the road. It doesn’t matter to them. They think they can get a quick out of any potential lawsuit by saying it’s not their fault and it doesn’t matter that we didn’t keep up maintenance.

This is what we have to face when we’re dealing with these types of cases. We have a recent case that is an interesting Slip-and-fall surgery claim case. An out of state retail developer bought a rundown home to renovate to flip and sell. They needed extra help so they hired another person. The first thing the owner of the house did was rip all of the old materials out of the house. This included a handrail on the stairwell that led to an open-sided stairwell with a drop of 12 feet.

One day a worker was walking down the stairs after the railing was ripped off and tripped and fell because they had nothing to grab on to. So our client required surgery because of it.

The insurance company and the owner of the house are denying any responsibility despite removing the handrail that’s supposed to prevent a person from falling. This is a perfect example of what is so clearly the other party’s fault, but they don’t accept blame. All that matters is that it’s a trip-and-fall and they don’t want to pay any money.
