Why You Should Call a Personal Injury Attorney for Your Slip and Fall Case

Slip and falls are often frustrating, unexpected turns in the day. The majority of the time they occur because someone else was careless and did not put the proper signage out. You are at risk of slip and fall almost everywhere, they can happen at school, the grocery store, or a shopping center. Although these cases are usually minor and result in no serious injuries, it’s still important you know how to handle it and when to call a slip and fall lawyer. Most injury cases such as a small fender bender can be handled on your own; however, with slip and fall cases it is best to have representation. It’s far too common that we see people not receiving the justice they deserve for their incident. Our slip and fall attorney’s at Lieberman Injury Law will make sure they fight for you and get you the compensation you deserve.

Establish Fault

Unfortunately, when you have a slip and fall accident the defendant will sometimes fight it saying that you slipped on your own, downplaying any injuries you might have received. This is where your personal injury attorney will come in and fight for your justice. With our team on your side, we can trace back what happened during the incident and ensure that we have all facts ready to claim that the property owner was negligent. We do this by talking to you about what happened, going over every detail no matter how insignificant. At the moment you were probably not thinking about every step you were taking; however, to get all the proper information for the case we need to think back to every step before the incident happened. This can include where you were looking if you were with anyone, and even what kind of shoes you were wearing at the time. After going over your case with you, the attorney should have a better idea of what happened and how they will establish fault. At this time we will look to state and local laws to see if the property you slipped and fell at violated any property laws. This will help build your case.

Proof of Losses

Proving the losses you have had to struggle with during this whole situation sounds a lot easier than it is. Simply saying that you fell and got injured is not enough evidence for your case. This is where having an experienced attorney will work greatly in your favor. With an attorney, you can properly put together a timeline of what happened and how it has brought you to the position you are currently in. This timeline will work by providing an image to the other side and the jury or judge in the courtroom. All parties involved will be able to get a clearer picture of what you have had to go through as a result of your slip and fall. During the time, you will have to gather all of the documentation that you have collected thus far and hand it over to the attorney so we can help build your case. This includes medical documentation of all injuries you have sustained and all of the medical bills you have had to pay. If you are out of work because of an injury, we need to see proof of that too. Anything that occurred as a result of your slip and fall injury will prove to be valuable to your case. The more documentation you can provide your personal injury attorney, the stronger your case will look to the judge or jury.
