Personal Injury Lawyer For A Slip And Fall Case
Slip and fall accidents are no laughing matter. These unexpected events can cause personal injuries, among other problems. These claims are aggressively disputed, denied, and defended by insurance companies and their attorneys. Here are some reasons why you should consider hiring a personal injury lawyer for a slip and fall case.
An attorney will be able to tell if you have a case that is worth pursuing. These cases revolve around the issue of liability. Liability means someone is legally liable to someone else for a harm that had been suffered. Regardless if it was a slip and fall at a store, on snow and ice, at a rental property, etc., liability must be shown.
This can be shown by demonstrating the propery owner negligently failed to reasonably maintain the property which led to the fall. If the propery owner was negligent, then liability can be shown.
Next the attorney will be able to persuasively present your case to the insurance company. That is done through photographs, witness statements, and other evidence.
Slip and fall attorneys also know how to negotiate these claims. They know the value of a case and how to argue a case to an insurance company adjuster. If the claim is denied or the offer is too low, then the attorney can file a lawsuit against the property owner, and if needed, try the case in front of a judge and jury.
