What to Do After a Fall
Every decision you make after an accident can impact your ability to obtain compensation. For this reason, our slip and fall attorneys have provided several tips you can use to protect your future claim:
Tip #1 – Make sure to inform the property owner that you have been injured immediately after your accident.
Tip #2 – Seek medical attention. Failing to be seen by a medical professional can have a negative effect on your claim. In some cases, injuries can take time to surface and pain may not arise until days or even weeks after the accident. However, if you wait to seek treatment or fail to follow your doctor’s orders, your likelihood of receiving compensation will decrease.
Tip #3 – Be sure to keep detailed records. This can include copies of medical bills, photos of your injuries, and pay stubs if you lost wages as a result of your injury. Evidence is a pivotal part of successful premises liability claims, so it’s important to keep track of any information related to your accident.
Tip #4 – Contact an experienced Indianapolis slip and fall lawyer. The legal process is rarely straightforward. For this reason, it’s in your best interest to enlist legal guidance regarding your claim.
Keeping these tips in mind may increase your chances of receiving the compensation you deserve after an accident.

N Paxton Bedford, Indiana
Shortly after Ken Nunn’s Law Office agreed to take my case, I received a call from Ken himself where he explained that he was “old school” and from time to time he made personal contact with a client, although he had already assigned one of his excellent attorneys to my case. We spoke for about twenty minutes. He is genuine, honest, and a total class act. He assured me he never charges more than his client receives! Ken Nunn and his team fight for you and handle everything, which was such a relief after trying to deal with an unpleasant insurance employee!!
Honestly, integrity, and trust are what you hope you will receive, and I can assure you this is what you’ll get from Ken Nunn!

Below are examples of unsafe conditions that commonly result in premises liability claims against property owners:
No warnings posted on known hazards or construction areas
Loose steps or handrails
Icy stairs or walkways
Debris from a spill
Uneven floors or sidewalks
Known construction defects
Open excavations or sewer construction
Injuries will vary depending upon the severity of the accident, but the most common injuries after slip and fall accidents include the following:
Traumatic brain injuries (TBI), from concussions to aneurysms
Sprains and broken bones
Back and spinal injuries, like paraplegia, that result in paralysis of the lower limbs
The extent of your injuries will help determine the amount of compensation you may be entitled to receive.
Indiana gives injured people exactly two years from the day of the accident to file a lawsuit against a property owner. There are very limited exceptions to this law.
Typically, this type of case is settled during the negotiation phase. However, if both parties are unable to reach an agreement, then filing a lawsuit may be your best option, and you will need to do so before the statute of limitations deadline.
Failing to file within the set deadline may cause your case to be dismissed, leaving you without any compensation for damages. If you were visiting a public place or a private residence in Indiana and were hurt due to a fall, it’s in your best interest to speak with us as soon as you can.

Proving Liability After a Fall
Proving fault is essential to obtaining compensation after your accident on a dangerous property. In order to successfully win this type of case, the following elements must be demonstrated: the property owner had a legal responsibility to ensure the area was safe, they neglected to uphold that responsibility, and the injuries you suffered were a direct result of their negligence.
Proving liability is complex without legal representation. In some cases, property owners will quickly repair the hazardous area in an attempt to avoid paying compensation for your injuries. For this reason, it’s in your best interest to consult our Indianapolis slip and fall lawyers immediately following your accident. Keep in mind, this type of case is time-sensitive, and any delays can result in little to no compensation.
The first step is to submit your case online, in-person, or over the phone for a free consultation and evaluation. This will help us understand your unique circumstances and find the right path forward for your case.
After determining that you have a case, your legal defense team at Ken Nunn Law Office will begin preparing your case by collecting all evidence necessary. Any photographs of the area in which you fell, your medical records, eyewitness testimony, and more will be gathered to strengthen your claim to prove the extent of your injuries, demonstrate the property owner’s negligence, and defend your right to fair compensation.
From there, the negotiation process will begin. We will deliver our demand letter to the insurance company, laying out what damages we are requesting to be compensated. If they disagree with our proposed settlement, we will continue negotiating for the maximum amount legally available to you.
Finally, you’ll receive a final settlement offer which, with the advice of your trusted attorney, you will have the choice of accepting or declining. We will continue working with you if you accept the offer, making sure that everything is carried out as agreed to. We want to be sure you get your money in a timely manner.
Slip and Fall FAQs
Premises liability laws in the state of Indiana hold property owners responsible for those who visit their property. By law, a property owner has a legal responsibility to make sure their grounds are safe for visitors. If a hazard arises on their property, then it’s their responsibility to fix the problem. If the hazard is unable to be resolved immediately, it is also the property owner’s duty to warn visitors.
If an owner fails to uphold their responsibilities, they could be held liable for any injuries directly caused by their negligent actions.
If your slip and fall accident was caused by the store’s negligence or carelessness, then you may have a case. Contact our slip and fall attorneys to discuss the details of your situation and determine if you have a viable claim.
Indiana follows a modified comparative fault rule, which means that your damages may be reduced if you were partially at fault for the accident. However, as long as you were less than 51% at fault, you may still be able to recover damages. Our attorneys can help you navigate the complexities of comparative fault and pursue the compensation you deserve.
We serve clients across Indiana, including Indianapolis, Bloomington, Fort Wayne, Evansville, and the surrounding areas. Contact us today to learn more about our legal services in your area.
