Should you Hire an Attorney after your Slip and Fall Injury?

If you are injured in a slip and fall accident, one of the first things you should do is to consult with a lawyer. Depending on the circumstances, the owner of the property where you were hurt may be legally responsible for your injuries. A personal injury attorney can review the facts and let you know whether you have a valid claim against the property owner.

The Insurance Company Offered Me Money. What Should I Do?

Also, many slip and fall injuries result in a settlement with the property owner’s insurance company. It is never a good idea to sign anything from the insurance company until you have consulted with a lawyer, since you may be accidentally giving up some of your rights. Your attorney can also negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf to obtain a fair settlement for you.

Will I Have to Go to Court?

You may need to file a lawsuit to recover adequate damages and protect your rights. Proving a slip and fall case can be very difficult, and an experienced attorney improves your odds of winning. Also, a lawyer can locate experts to help with the presentation of your case.

How Much Does a Personal Injury Attorney Charge?

The good news is that most attorneys will take slip and fall cases on a contingency basis. This means that you do not have to pay your lawyer up front. Instead, your lawyer will simply take an agreed-upon percentage of your award. Also, you are not obligated to pay the attorney in the event that you are unsuccessful in court.
