Every year, more than a million people in the United States are seriously injured due to slip, trip, and fall accidents. These accidents can hurt more than a person’s pride. In fact, slip, trip, and fall accidents account for more emergency room visits than any other type of accident. Even more disturbingly, these types of accidents result in more than 16,000 deaths each year. Sometimes, seemingly minor accidents can lead to significant injuries.

Accidents can happen anytime, anywhere, and to anyone. However, many slip, trip, and fall accidents could be avoided if property owners would institute known safety measures and correct potential safety hazards. It’s important to understand that, if you’ve been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, you are entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Whether your injury is minor or catastrophic, consulting a personal injury attorney will help you preserve your legal right to compensation. An experienced personal injury attorney will also protect you from further victimization from insurance companies and the legal system.

HIS GENUINE CONCERN PUT HIM IN A CATEGORY OF HIS OWN

I don’t usually participate in reviews however, my experience with Mr. Youd was incentive enough to do so and I thought perhaps it might help someone who may be hesitant or intimidated to meet with an attorney. Mr. Youd’s knowledge of the law and his experience were evident right away but it was his genuine concern for my situation that put him in a category of his own. He was able to counsel me swiftly and concisely with excellent advice and tremendous foresight. Kudos and thank you!”
