As a personal injury lawyer, I have represented people in Slip & Fall Accidents throughout my 25 years in practicing law. At my law office in Providence RI, we have experience handling slip-and-fall incidents of all types, including slips on food and foreign substances in restaurants and supermarkets, trips over badly aligned sidewalk edges and other dangerous surfaces, and falls down stairs that are in poor condition and/or not built to code.
Finding an Experienced Slip & Fall Attorney
Any attorney that you are considering to handle a slip-and-fall case for you should have extensive experience handling these different types of incidents, because each will have unique aspects that must be adequately proven in order to resolve your case.
If You Are Injured in a Slip & Fall Incident
Here are a few tips in how to successfully pursue a slip and fall lawsuit. If you or a family member has been injured in this type of accident, please review these tips carefully - your case could depend on it.
From a legal standpoint, slip and fall injuries differ significantly from traffic accidents in an important manner: The conditions that caused a slip and fall injury can much more easily and quickly be "cleaned up" or "lost" than can the physical evidence resulting from a traffic incident.
If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident, it is critical to gather and preserve evidence from the incident including, photographs and witnesses statements. In addition, having an experienced personal injury lawyer to guide you is crucial.
Don’t Let Insurance Companies Pressure You to Settle
Auto accidents happen every day and if you’ve been hurt or injured in a car, truck, motorcycle or any other motor vehicle accident, you may be eligible for compensation.
This recent spike in fatalities is tragic for many vulnerable families who are grieving their loss. Sadly, many insurance companies may take advantage of vulnerable people by working hard to settle claims quickly and for the lowest possible amount – all to boost profits.
Don’t settle and don’t sign away your rights without talking to an experienced personal injury law firm first.
3 Reasons You Should Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer after an Auto Accident
- An attorney will look out for your best interest and strive to get you the highest compensation possible. While settling your claim quickly with the insurance company might seem like a good plan, it’s critical to take the time to fully assess the injuries sustained. You only have one opportunity to prove your injuries. Once you accept a settlement, that decision is final and you may lose your rights to ever file another claim again – even if you discover your injuries are worse than you originally thought.
- He or she will know what questions to ask and can walk you through the claims process. Not only can an experienced personal injury lawyer establish a timeline for each step in the process, they are familiar with the paperwork – saving you the hassle of having to navigate complex documents on your own.
- An attorney will help protect you from unnecessary or harassing inquiries from the insurance company or other parties involved. Your attorney knows what questions are relevant and will help protect your rights. You don’t want the insurance company to misconstrue your words and undermine your case.
