Tempe Slip and Fall Injury Attorney

Qualifying Criteria for a Slip and Fall Case:

You might wonder, “Does my slip and fall case qualify for compensation?” We’re here to provide a simple and clear guide to understanding the key factors determining your eligibility for seeking the compensation you deserve.

Let’s break it down step-by-step:

  • Your Visitor Status: When you were on the property where the accident occurred, were you there as an invited guest, a customer, or simply passing through? The answer matters because different types of visitors have varying legal protections. Don’t worry; we’ll explain how this impacts your case and safeguard your rights.
  • Noticing the Hazard: It is essential to demonstrate the property owner’s negligence that he was aware of the hazardous situation or reasonably should have been aware of it to establish liability. Whether it was a wet floor left unattended or a broken step overlooked despite being reported, we’ll thoroughly investigate the case to make it strong.
  • Comparative Fault Rule: In Tempe Arizona, even if you share some responsibility for the accident, you may still be eligible for compensation. We’ll carefully analyze the details of your situation, and no matter the circumstances, we’ll fight for the maximum recovery possible.

    Our Approach to Slip and Fall Cases

    At the Sorenson Law Firm, we truly understand how complicated slip and fall cases can be. Our main goal is to assist you in seeking the highest possible compensation for your injuries and any losses you may have experienced. Here is our approach to the investigation:

    Collecting Evidence: 

    One of the initial steps our team takes is to collect essential evidence to construct a compelling case on your behalf. This evidence includes but is not limited to:

    • Photographic evidence: We carefully record all the details of the location where the injury took place, making sure to document any dangerous conditions or careless actions that caused the slip and fall incident.
    • Witness statements: We interview witnesses present during the incident to obtain their firsthand accounts of what happened. The statements they make can offer valuable support for your claim.
    • Security camera footage: If any surveillance footage is available, we try to identify and collect it, as it may have captured the accident. Having this footage can be significant in establishing liability.
    • Your medical records: Our team thoroughly examines your medical history to understand the severity of your injuries and how they have affected your daily life. This information is useful for accurately evaluating the worth of your claim.

    Calculating Your Claim’s Value: 

    Determining the full extent of your damages is required to ensure you receive fair compensation. Our team works diligently to assess the various elements that contribute to your claim’s value, including:

    • Medical expenses: We account for all past and future medical costs related to your injuries, including hospital bills, medications, physical therapy, and any necessary ongoing treatments.
    • Lost wages: We will assist you in assessing the amount of money you have lost due to missing work due to slip and fall injuries, and we will try to receive compensation for these missed wages.
    • Pain and suffering: We understand the emotional toll slip and fall accidents can take on victims. Our team seeks appropriate compensation for your physical and emotional pain.
    • Property damage: If any of your personal things were damaged in the incident, the value of those items will be included in the claim that we file on your behalf.

    Negotiating with Insurance Company: 

    Navigating with insurance companies can be tricky because they often try to settle for the lowest amount possible. We have years of legal experience negotiating with insurance companies for individuals injured in slip and fall accidents. Rest assured; our team will handle all communication with the insurer on your behalf. We are committed to working diligently to ensure you receive a fair settlement covering all your damages.

    We provide personalized attention and ensure you get the support and representation you deserve for your case. We are committed to guiding you through the legal process, answering any questions you may have in mind, and keeping you informed at every step.

    It’s important to recognize that time is important in personal injury cases. Evidence can deteriorate over time, and witnesses may forget important details. If you’ve been injured in a slip and fall accident, don’t hesitate to contact The Sorenson Law Firm. We offer free consultations and would happily discuss your case with you.

    Let me start off by saying that if your looking for someone who is kind thoughtful professional down to earth easy to communicate with & is very pro active in how they do business & is 100% invested in you & getting the best outcome for whatever your situation may be than I would recommend jonny & rowanna. This was my first time that I needed to find a lawyer who could assist me with my situation. What stood out to me was at the end of our zoom meeting I remember saying to both jonny & rowann that I'm not interested in moving forward because I was more at fault than the lady who hit me so in my mind I'm thinking we'll this guy probably isn't going to want to take my case because it seemed like it would be an uphill battle, & he responded by letting me know that he would like to take my case & see what he could do & bottom line is that you"ll either have more than what you have now or you"ll be in the same situation. So I thought about it for a minute & decided to trust them to see what happens. So from that day on all the way til the case was resolved I've had a great experience with them. Rowanna explained everything to me in a way that was not complicated & always asked me that if had any questions or if I didn't understand she would ask. They are easy to talk with & made me feel like I was important & trying to get the best outcome for me. When my case was complete I was so grateful & appreciated for what they were able to do for me. Johnny & Rowanna are the best & will always have & want the best for you I know because they did that for me. Thanks again CHRISTOPHER

    I worked with The Sorenson Law firm for about 5 months resolving a personal injury claim that occurred during a car accident I was in and I couldn't have been more happy with results. The firm was always responsive, quick to answer any questions I had and I could tell they had my best interest in mind. I would recommend The Sorenson Law Firm to anyone that needs a personal injury lawyer, they're great!

    I cannot recommend the Sorenson Law Firm enough. After an accident, I was in a situation where I knew very little about my options. I reached out to my community for advice and Johnny’s wife was quick to put me in contact with him to get me some help. The insurance company we were dealing with was not the easiest, but Johnny and his team did a wonderful job at recovering my losses and fighting for me. Johnny and his team kept me well informed and educated throughout the process, which meant a lot as I was very naïve and knew very little going into this process. I feel fortunate to have crossed paths with this wonderful team, and if life ever throws another curve ball, I’ll be sure to use the Sorenson Law Firm again!!!

    Sorenson Law Firm made a tough situation less burdensome for me and my family. Going through the lost of a loved one and having to instill trust in people you don't know is hard. But Johnny Sorenson and his associates were very caring, professional, informative and timely when it came to our case. I would recommend The Sorenson Law Firm to anyone that needs lawyers that actually care about their clients and not just a paycheck. I'm writing this as a thank you to their company and to the team that worked on our case. Thank you!
