Slip and Fall Injury Claims

Dr. Jeff J. Mollins has been practicing in Downtown Brooklyn for over 25 years. His expertise lies in the diagnosis, treatment, and documentation of injuries sustained in accidents.

People slip and fall all the time. Injuries that occur when people slip and fall can vary from mild to extremely severe. With slip and falls, like Slip and Fall Accident Doctor | Slip and Fall Injury Claims | Brooklyn most accidents, initially a person may not feel the impact of the injury until much later. It’s very important to see your doctor immediately after a fall just to make sure that you have not sustained any injury and if so, that the injury is not severe. Also, the sooner you treat the injury, chances are, the resolution will be much quicker. In addition, seeing the doctor expeditiously will make it easier to correlate (and document) the injuries sustained to the accident.

Here are some important things you should know if you or anyone you know is ever involved in a slip and fall accident:

When a person trips and falls as a result of the negligence of another, then the injured person is entitled to medical benefits paid by the negligent party. Some people have a provision in their policy that will automatically pay for medical benefits for anyone injured on their property, while other insurance policies only pay if they are satisfied that their insured is at fault.

When one falls anywhere, the cause of the fall should always be documented. A cell phone is sufficient to take a photo of a wet floor or a floor without a mat or with a defective rug. Once the cause is documented, medical treatment should be called or sought as soon as possible. The sooner one treats, the easier it is to relate the injury to the fall.

When one falls while working, there is almost always workers compensation that pays for necessary treatment. However, a person injured in a fall should always seek medical attention, as even a trip can cause injury to the back, neck, knees or other areas. The movement to the body that occurs when one slips and/or falls is always unexpected and likely to cause injury that will limit ones motion and be a competent producing cause of pain.

If an individual slips/falls in a supermarket or other business, the owner of that business will always say that the injured party should have been looking where they were going. This is not a valid defense, and a good lawyer can recover if a dangerous condition existed that caused the fall. In a supermarket, for example, the store wants you looking at the shelves and in fact stock the shelves to keep you looking there and not the floor.

In every case the first questions is, did the owner of the property do something unreasonable and the next question is what was the injury  Slip and Fall Accident Doctor | Slip and Fall Injury Claims | Brooklyn that occurred as a result of the unreasonable conduct. In order to establish injury in a slip and fall claim, one must have the testimony of a doctor or the opinion of a doctor describing the injury and attributing that injury to the accident. Quality, competent doctors know the type of tests that are needed to confirm injuries and how to quantify the restrictions in ones ability to move. Quality, competent doctors will treat the injuries sustained from a slip and fall and be able to determine if there is any permanency. All of this is essential to support a claim and to be paid for the injury and for the medical treatment. Many doctors will treat a patient on a lien, which means that the doctor only gets paid if the patient recovers and the doctor’s fees are paid from the settlement and included in the settlement.

Individuals that have been successful in all types of cases such as falling on snow/ice, falling in a stadium, falling in a parking lot and even falling in your own apartment building, are only successful if a knowledgeable doctor can support the claim that the injuries are related to the slip/fall.

  • I am never disappointed in Jeff’s service. He is a truly great man.

    Bobby K.
  • I’ve seen several chiropractors over the years, and it’s obvious when they’re just in the business to squeeze as much money out of their clients as possible by requiring visits every few days (for minor ailments). Dr. Mollins was excellent in this regard. He acknowledged that I was in minor pain and said he could help, but suggested I come in again whenever I’d like to. I really appreciated the lack of pressure. But most of all, I liked the treatment. I felt like a million bucks after my adjustment. Highly recommended!

    Emily B.
  • A notification over phone or email that they only take cash or checks would be great, prior to appointment visit.

    Tony V.
  • Dr Jeff Mollins is unlike any casual Chiropractor. There are professionals that simply go about their life committing to their job as an obligation rather than an interest. Dr Jeff Mollins is genuinely interested in his patients as a friend looks out for another friend. I’ve had neck and upper back pain for as long as I remember. But Dr Jeff Mollins was able to identify my issues and help walk me through what he was going to do to tackle the issue. I felt aware and comfortable. I had some slight pain on my left shoulder an hour after my appointment due to the major adjustments that had been made to my spine. I called Dr Jeff Mollins and he helped me right away and even emailed me to check up on me again. Dr Jeff Mollins goes above and beyond to guarantee the satisfaction of his patients and I got all of this from only one visit! Definitely looking forward to visit Dr Jeff Mollins office again and I highly recommend him.
