The Slip & Fall Law Firm Serving Phoenix
Slip & Fall Info
Slip and fall injuries are common, but that doesn’t make them any less dangerous. Whether you’ve slipped on a wet floor at a grocery store or hurt yourself in a dangerous area that wasn’t clearly marked, you may have a case.
Over a million people suffer significant slip and fall injuries every year in the United States, and roughly 17,000 people are killed from these incidents each year. These injuries also cost victims an average of $30,000 in medical and rehabilitation fees.
Most stores and places of business are required by law to provide safe and accessible locations and facilities for their customers. Some of the most common businesses covered under these laws include:
No matter how serious your slip and fall injuries are, you may be looking for compensation to help take care of your medical bills and get your life back on track. If your injuries were caused by the negligence of another, you deserve to be compensated.
That’s exactly where Blackwell Ruiz comes in. Our lawyers will be fierce advocates for your rights as we build your injury case and seek the compensation you’re rightfully entitled to. We’re here to make things right.
Slip & Fall: $150k Recovered
Mr. Ruiz, in my opinion, fought and won an unwinn-able lawsuit with Bank of America for me. He kept digging until he found enough evidence to convince them they could not win. I have nothing but praise for Lawrence and would gladly hire him again if the need ever arose.

Legal Questions? Talk to a top attorney
If you’ve been hurt in the state of Arizona due to the carelessness or negligence of another person or business, we’re here to help. Blackwell Ruiz handles all types of personal injury cases, including slip and falls.
Slip and fall injuries are some of the most common in the country. Our team is proud to advocate for victims all over the state, including Phoenix, Glendale, Flagstaff, San Tan Valley, Peoria, Mesa, Scottsdale, Queen Creek, Gilbert, Paradise Valley, and Chandler.
You’ll notice most personal injury law firms throughout the nation claim not to charge “until you win.” Blackwell Ruiz is the same—we work based on contingency, which means you’ll see zero charges until we’ve won your case.
In cases involving minor injuries and small amounts of damages, you may not need to hire an attorney. However, most personal injury cases are far more complex than they might seem, and the average victim who chooses self-representation tends to receive less money in their settlement.
That’s hard to say until you’ve met with an attorney for a consultation. Arizona’s slip and fall laws seem simple enough on paper, but you’ll want the expert opinion of an attorney to know for sure whether or not you have a case.
No. We don’t think it’s fair to charge clients even more money when they’re already dealing with hospital fees and physical therapy fees. We charge a percentage of your total payout, meaning you don’t pay until you win.
As with many questions, that depends. The more simple your case, the quicker it might take. If you’re seriously injured, are seeking a large amount of damages, or your case is more complicated, it will likely take longer.
We have a track record of winning large, fair settlements for our clients that don’t require going to court. However, a percentage of cases will need to go to court—if yours is one of them, know that you’ll be fully prepared ahead of time.
Believe it or not, there are certain situations where trespassers may be protected under Arizona state premises liability laws. If you were injured while trespassing, seek the help of an experienced attorney.
Most locations have time limits in place that can affect your ability to seek damages after an injury case. These limits are called “statutes of limitations.” Your best bet is to file your case ASAP to make sure you don’t miss your deadline.
If you’ve just been injured in a slip and fall Phoenix, it’s tough to estimate how much your case is worth—and assume that lawyers who claim to know the amount may just be trying to sign a new client. As your case progresses, we’ll be able to give you a clearer idea of what to expect.
If you fell at work, you may have two options—a personal injury claim or a workers compensation claim. Blackwell Ruiz also handles workers comp cases, and our attorneys can help you decide which type of case better fits your situation.
