The Importance of Your Slip & Fall Lawyer
Property owners have a duty to maintain their properties free from hazards. If you have tripped or slipped and were injured due to a poorly maintained property, you may be able to recover compensation for your injuries. If you have been in a slip and fall accident, it is crucial that you retain a lawyer as soon as possible.
Once memories fade and wounds heal, collecting evidence becomes more difficult, especially if the property owner has fixed the hazard that caused your injury. The sooner you contact a slip & fall lawyer, the sooner they can begin to gather evidence, interview witnesses and build your case
What are Slip & Fall Injuries?
Slip and fall accidents can occur while walking through grocery stores, retail-establishments, gas stations, restaurants, rest rooms, office buildings, parking lots or sidewalks.
Injuries resulting from slip and falls may be the responsibility of the property owner or others whose negligence caused a condition to exist that contributed to causing your injuries. Important facts include whether and how long the owner or occupants of the property knew of the issue and if any action was taken to remedy the condition or whether there were any warnings posted.
No two slip and fall premises liability cases are ever the same. The extent of liability and likelihood of successfully proving a claim depend on the relevant facts and the ability of your attorney to investigate and prove the facts that prove liability for the resultant damages.
The Importance of a Slip & Fall Lawyer
Although there is no such thing as a slip and fall lawyer, there are lawyers who are uniquely qualified to prosecute slip and fall claims successfully as a result of their education and training and who have extensive experience handling slip and fall cases.
The degree of success achieved in proving the liability of a property owner for injuries caused by a dangerous condition and obtaining reasonable and fair monetary damages for medical bills, economic losses and pain and suffering, depends largely on the experience and ability of the lawyer you choose to handle your case. It is, therefore, of utmost importance to check on the lawyer’s level of specialized experience and successful track record in winning slip and fall cases.
