man walking with a right foot injury | Slip and Fall Frequently Asked QuestionsSlip and Fall Accidents can lead to serious injuries, including traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones and more. Unfortunately, many people have these catastrophic injuries caused by the negligence of others, but do not know how to protect their own rights. Here are some of the questions frequently asked of premises liability attorneys by clients who have suffered serious injuries in slip and fall accidents.

Slip & Fall FAQ

Q: I don’t have a lot of money, and these medical bills are going to be expensive. Can I afford to hire a lawyer?

A: Yes. The civil court system in Colorado is designed to give EVERYONE access to justice. A dedicated attorney will work on your slip and fall case on a contingency fee basis. What this means is that you agree to pay your attorney a certain percentage of any money that he or she recovers for you in the case. In many cases, the attorney will cover any expenses that the case incurs, to be paid out of the recovery. Ultimately, what this means is that you only pay your attorney if he or she is successful in helping you. Colorado attorneys are required by law to give you this contingency fee option, in an effort to ensure that every Coloradan has access to the civil justice system.

Q: There always seem to be news articles about “frivolous” slip and fall lawsuits. What does this mean?

A: Frankly, this is often just a spin that is put on perfectly valid lawsuits filed by people who have been seriously injured by the negligent behavior of others. Insurance companies work very hard to make everyday people think that lawsuits in general are a waste of time and money. The fact is, someone who isn’t familiar with the details of a given case has no basis to judge whether the case is “frivolous.” If, for example, the carelessness of a business owner results in a situation on his or her premises that is inherently dangerous, that business owner would be liable for damage caused by that carelessness. Frankly, your premises liability accident attorney is doing nothing more than holding people accountable for their own actions.

Q: I had a slip and fall accident that was caused by a dangerous situation, but it was partly my own fault. Can I still take action?

A: Yes. The law is like anything else, it is not black and white, one way or the other. Fault in an accident does not have to be entirely one person or the other. Your attorney will work to show that the business owner had some responsibility for the accident. Ultimately, a decision will be made about HOW MUCH responsibility each party had. In other words, it’s not “all or nothing.”

Roy Miller

I don’t know where I would be without the Law Offices of Robert Paysinger. It was a very emotional experience, and I feel as if I owe Mr. Paysinger my life! The other lawyers would promise everything, but it was only here that I felt his integrity and willingness to live up to his word. He and the paralegals were so incredibly helpful throughout the strenuous process of my case. Going through a lawsuit is an emotional roller coaster, but whenever I was confused they would sit and explain everything in terms that I could understand. They provided an emotional support and treated me like family. It’s never about the money there, but about you, if you are upset they will do everything to help you, and work extremely hard for you. They are extremely honest and straight forward. I would recommend Mr. Paysinger to everyone, because they truly and genuinely care about you.

Thanks, Robert, for all the help with my accidents (both of them). You always promptly returned my calls and were extremely helpful whenever I had questions. After my motorcycle accident, you helped me understand how to better protect myself in the future, and because of that when I got in my car accident a year later, you were the only person I considered calling.
