Slip and Fall Injuries

When grounds are unsafe and people suffer injuries in slip and fall accidents, they may have legal rights to collect financial compensation for their injuries and losses. However, slip and fall cases can be complicated, which is why injured victims should learn as much as they can about premises liability law and slip and fall injury lawsuits.

At Shevlin Smith, we know that a slip and fall accident can cause a pile of medical bills that victims might be unable to pay. We also know that an injured person may be losing income due to the injury keeping him or her away from work. Because we don’t feel that victims of slip and fall accidents should suffer physically and financially, we are passionate about providing victims with helpful information on this website to empower them during an overwhelming time.

Medical MalpracticeMedical Malpractice

Many doctors, nurses, anesthesiologists, and pharmacists, among other healthcare professionals, make mistakes. While every human being makes mistakes in their professions from time to time, there are consequences for mistakes that negatively affect a person’s life. For example, doctors are held to a standard of care. When they make errors because they deviated from the standard, they can be held accountable under medical malpractice law.

If you have been injured as a result of a negligent healthcare worker—whether a medical mistake took place in a hospital, doctor’s office, or pharmacy—you should learn about your legal rights, the process, what steps you should and shouldn’t take, and what types of damages you may be entitled to.
