Slips, Trips, and Falls | Poor or Inadequate Lighting | Negligent Security
According to the National Safety Council, more than 9 million people visit emergency rooms every year because of a slip, trip, or fall. While many of those injuries are minor, a slip-and-fall almost always has the potential to be serious or catastrophic. In fact, falls are the leading cause of traumatic brain injury across the country, accounting for more than a third of all TBIs.
Most injuries sustained in premises liability accidents are preventable, caused by the carelessness or negligence of owners, property managers, and others. If you or someone you love is hurt in a slip-and-fall on someone else’s property, the experienced attorneys at Bailey & Galyen can help.

Frequently Asked Questions About Premises Liability Claims
What Should I Do Immediately After a Slip-and-Fall or Other Premises-Liability Injury?
- In the moments immediately after a premises-liability accident, focus on your health and medical needs. Don’t try to minimize or shake off your injuries. If possible, don’t move until emergency medical technicians arrive, and defer to their judgment. Seek immediate medical care at a hospital, urgent care facility, or doctor’s office. Be sure to let doctors and nurses know about anything that seems out of the ordinary, and ask them to document everything in writing.
- Retain an experienced attorney as soon as possible. Your lawyer will take immediate steps to protect your legal interests, gathering and preserving physical evidence and getting contact information and statements from potential witnesses. Your lawyer can also be your advocate with insurers, helping you get the benefits available under your policy.
- Take time to get contact information from others on the scene, including owners, property managers, and witnesses. Take pictures of everything, from the conditions on the property to your injuries.
