How Our Slip and Fall Injury Attorneys Can Help You

Slip and fall injury cases are hard to handle on your own. Our personal injury attorneys will work with you to determine if you have a viable slip and fall case. In dealing with your claim, your slip and fall lawyer may:

  • Assess Injuries and Suggest Necessary Medical Treatment: Your attorney will review your medical records to evaluate the extent of your injuries. Our attorneys work with medical experts who can testify about the necessary medical treatments and rehabilitation procedures needed for you to make a full recovery. A medical expert will evaluate the extent of your injuries to help ensure you are fully compensated for damages.

  • Gather Evidence:  This helps prove that the owner or occupier was negligent in maintaining the property and contributed to your injuries. This is done by:
    • Visiting the scene of the accident
    • Taking photographs of the dangerous condition
    • Questioning potential witnesses
    • Reviewing available video surveillance to establish how long the unsafe condition existed
    • Obtaining copies of accident reports
    • Reviewing the businesses' operational records and cleaning logs

  • Negotiate a Settlement: In some cases, the slip and fall attorney may negotiate an agreement directly with the property owner or its insurance company. Cases often settle because property owners and their insurance companies seek to avoid the costs and negative media reports associated with a jury trial. If these negotiations do not result in an adequate settlement offer, your personal injury attorney will prepare to take the case to trial.

 


Our Slip and Fall Injury Attorneys Can Help

It is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible following a slip and fall accident. Over time, key pieces of evidence may become lost or destroyed, and eyewitnesses often forget some of the most important case details. If the case demands it, our attorneys will take depositions of store employees to establish that the area where the accident occurred was not regularly cleaned or maintained. 

Remember, the moment you are injured, the clock counts down to the day the statute of limitations for filing a lawsuit runs out.

If you have been injured on someone else's property, and you believe it was due to their negligent actions, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Let our team of experienced slip and fall attorneys help with your injury claim.

Frequently Asked Slip and Fall Questions

HOW MUCH DOES A PREMISES LIABILITY ATTORNEY COST?

Hiring a slip and fall lawyer does not require any upfront legal expenses because they work on contingency.

Working on contingency means that the client does not pay anything upfront, and the lawyers only collect a small percentage during the final settlement.

Operating on a contingency fee basis is very helpful to slip and fall victims, since they can be confident that their lawyers will do everything they can to optimize their final settlement.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO GET A SETTLEMENT IN A PREMISES LIABILITY LAWSUIT?

When it comes to the length of time it takes to settle, premises liability lawsuits can greatly vary.

First, you should contact an attorney soon after your slip and fall accident. Waiting to secure an attorney can draw out the settlement process, especially if you try to file a lawsuit without legal representation. 

Second, how bad the accident was and the degree of the injuries can cause the case length to vary. In many cases, insurance companies want to wait until the victim's injuries are entirely healed and the medical bills are totaled before settling. Discussing your options with an expert law firm is very beneficial since they can set up a medical lien. A medical lien makes it so that you do not have to pay any out-of-pocket medical bills until your case is settled.

Finally, it depends on the settlement size and when you can get a court date (if you cannot settle in mediation). If you are prepared to accept a smaller settlement, then your lawyer can wrap up your case in a few months. If you are going after a greater settlement, the process is lengthier and could end up going to trial.

WHEN SHOULD I HIRE A SLIP AND FALL LAWYER?

If you were involved in a slip and fall accident while in a public setting or on the job, you may wonder if you should hire a slip and fall lawyer. If you were injured as a result of your accident, then you should absolutely contact an attorney.

However, if you did not suffer any injury, or your injury was not bad enough to get medical treatment then you should not hire a premise liability lawyer. You will not qualify to take legal action if you did not sustain any serious injury.

HOW MUCH IS MY SLIP AND FALL LAWSUIT WORTH?

The worth of a premises liability case is dependant on many different factors, including:

  • The amount of insurance coverage that is available
  • The wages you lost for missed time at your job
  • The full extent of your injuries

Depending on the details of your accident, your lawyer can draft a demand letter to give a pretty accurate estimate of the total expenses related to your accident.
