Regardless of whether you have suffered from a minor car accident or a severe fall on a property, it is important to hire a legal professional to ensure your rights are protected. Although minor car accidents don’t require the assistance of a lawyer, a slip, and fall cases aren’t suitable for self-representation. Most of these accidents occur on the property where the owner does not have a clear liability, and a slip and fell injury isn’t always a straightforward matter.
Hiring a slip and fall attorney is necessary if you are unsure whether you have a strong case. Insurance adjusters have many ways to avoid paying out full amounts. They may pressure you to accept a small settlement or trick you into making a statement that will damage your case. A slip and fall attorney will be able to work with the insurance company to get you the compensation you deserve.
The first step in filing a slip and fall lawsuit is to determine fault. It is not easy to determine who is at fault in a slip and fall case. For example, if a slip and slide were the result of someone’s negligence, the insurance adjuster may try to convince you to accept a very small settlement. It is very difficult to evaluate pain and suffering, and proving that you were at fault can be very complicated.
