Slip And Fall Accident Cases:

Before getting into discussion about how a personal injury lawyer can help you in slip and fall cases, it is essential to know when you can make the claims. Slip and fall accidents can take place anywhere – it might be your workplace, supermarket, home improvement shop, a restaurant, etc.

Other than these situations, you can also make the claim if you get hurt under premises liability. The theory states – owners of respective properties are liable to maintain their premises in good condition so that there are no chances of slip and fall accidents. However, if someone fails to keep their property in safe state owing to which you get hurt then you can file a lawsuit.

Personal Injury Lawyers for Slip And Fall Accidents:

Proving Liability

To file your case for a trial or for settlement, you need to prove your liability. This further implies that you will need someone to prove your innocence and guilt of the third party. Often this is easy to prove when fighting case for car accidents, but complicated for slip and fall.

For this reason, your lawyer will sit with you for a consultation process and know about how the injury took place. Sometimes, you might not remember what led to the mishap. Yet you should try to help the lawyer with all the details and he/she will figure out the possibilities of your fall and then will determine on how to proceed further.

What You are Worth Of

Your personal injury attorney will make an assessment on what you are worth of before filing a claim. Here are some of the compensatory damages you are entitled to:

•    Pre-existing injuries

Specific Damages – Special damages count for calculable loss of money that resulted from your injury. These cover medical expenditure, consequential costs and lost wages for past and future as well. Amount depends on:

•    Medical Bills
