Slip and Fall Accidents

If you slip and fall or are otherwise injured on another’s property, you may be entitled to compensation. Slip and fall liability cases may include:

  • Negligence in care of a sidewalk or publicly owned area, including icy conditions or potholes
  • Dangerous conditions in a store or home, including torn carpeting, changes in flooring, poor lighting, or wet floors
  • Unsafe or narrow staircases
  • Hazardous weather conditions, including rain, ice, or snow

If you’ve seriously injured yourself after slipping and falling on another’s property, contact the personal injury lawyers at Shure, Perez, O’Connor & Pasti today.

Medical Malpractice

Some cases of medical malpractice can leave you with clearly evident damage, such as in cases of surgical errors. Others may require diligent application of your right to fair treatment, such as a misdiagnosis that goes undiscovered for months or years. Medical malpractice does not necessarily mean a medical treatment was unsuccessful, as doctors do not guarantee the services they provide. That said, a doctor is required to have the knowledge, skills, and experience necessary to provide the services you require. Malpractice comes in when a professional’s misconduct or failure to use adequate care, skill, or diligence when performing their duties.

If you believe you’ve been a victim of medical malpractice, contact the personal injury lawyers at Shure, Perez, O’Connor & Pasti today at 301-762-8860.

Important Information Regarding Matters of Personal Injury

If you’re in an automobile accident, the following things are very important for your claim:

  1. If your condition permits, write down any statements made by the other driver and or any witnesses. This is essential, as often the other driver will say things like “I’m sorry” or “I didn’t see you” or “I was distracted”. That same person will later deny making the statement, or claim not to remember saying statements that will help you on the issue of liability. Your attorney will, of course, talk to any of your passengers.
  2. If the other driver attempts to leave the scene, write down his or her license number.
  3. Unless the impact is just a light tap, call the police to come to the scene, even if there are no serious injuries.
  4. If the police don’t show up, be sure to take pictures (with your phone if you don’t have a camera) of any damage to the other car and the location of the accident.
  5. You want to have a photo of the lanes the vehicles were in at the time of impact, as there is often a dispute as to which lane each car was in (the car at fault may have tried to cut in front of you in order to turn, for example).
  6. Don’t rely on your insurance company for photos of property damage. Take your own pictures from different angles to show the severity of the impact.
  7. You are required to give a statement to your own insurance company. However, DO NOT give any statement to the other driver’s insurance company.
  8. Immediately contact your Insurance agent and file a claim under your PIP coverage. The covered amount is usually $2500, but can be much higher. PIP is cheap and you can’t be without it, as none of it has to be paid back.
