Tampa’s Best Personal Injury Attorney
Did you know that there is a reason that stairs are measured the way they are? All it takes is a slight error in height or spacing between two stairs and you will find yourself tripping up or falling down the stairs. For the fallen, a major issue is the type of material the stairs are made of. There is the more common wooden stair found around homes, the steel staircase stairs found on fire escapes and in factories, and the lesser used cement stairs.
I can tell you from personal experience you do not want to fall on cement stairs.
I have a neighbor who lives at the bottom of a hill. In order to get from the street level (top) you have to descend 21 stairs. Fortunately the angle is not to steep. Unfortunately, because we live in a town where street lighting is sparse, navigating down the stairs in the dark can be treacherous. I discovered that the hard way.
One rainy day, I was going down the stairs and missed the presence of a 3 inch tree branch. I rolled my foot on it and fell forward, striking my knee against one stair and my shoulder against another. It is a good thing I didn’t fall backwards. As I lay there writhing in pain and trying to get up, my neighbor came out of his house and saw the tree branch – and the accident. He asked me if I was all right and tried to help me up. But my mom told me that if you are ever in such a situation, stay down and get someone to call an ambulance. So I asked my neighbor to call an ambulance.
He balked, saying that he would help me and there was no need to call an ambulance. But I insisted. The ambulance came and put me on the gurney to take me to the hospital. Once there, it was discovered that I had torn some tendons in my rotator cuff, had a sprained wrist, and my arm had to be put in a sling for at least a week. My job is loading trucks, which means I would be losing out on at least a week’s worth of pay.
A friend, not a neighbor, heard about the accident and told me about a web site that I should visit to try and get compensation for my medical bills and lost time from work. The site, The Personal Injury Attorney Tampa at was recommended because he had used it and got more than a satisfactory settlement. He said the staff was helpful and knowledgeable, and they had a ”no fee unless we win” policy. They have a list of steps potential clients should take when filing a personal injury claim. Best of all, the site is full of useful information that can be directly applied to your situation without having to pay a lawyer for it.
This was my first time dealing with a personal injury lawsuit, so I was glad to have the reference. I called them at their toll free number, 888-447-0618 and was immediately connected to a lawyer who evaluated my overall situation and explained to me the possibilities of getting compensated for the accident. When I decided to go ahead with the case, I discovered how reasonable the prices were for their services, and how they would be there every step of the way through the legal process. The court system is slower than we would like it to be, and my neighbor refused to let his homeowner’s insurance pay for the medical and compensation expenses. At the end of the day, I won my lawsuit all with the help and legal expertise of their excellent legal staff. If I had to do it all over, this is the place I would go to, without a doubt.
By the way, I found out all that information about stairs because it was part of the legal process. The more I learned about the little things, the more I realized how personal injury lawsuits come about. Many times we think it was just an accident or our fault, but discovering these little tidbits can be the difference between having to carry the burden of medical bills or being compensated for your losses.
But the best thing that came out of this ordeal was that I didn’t have to search around for a knowledgeable and competent legal team. That part of the problem was resolved by them. As my friend recommended them to me, so I heartily recommend them to you.
