While some accidents are so minor it is not worth seeking legal intervention, others result in severe injury with significant medical costs. However, having the right slip and fall attorney can make all the difference in securing the compensation you deserve.
Regan Zambri Long explains what you need to look for in a slip and fall attorney.
When looking for a slip and fall accident attorney to represent you, it is important to know that not all attorneys are equal. While some slip and fall accidents only result in minor cuts and bruises, others can be catastrophic and even fatal. It is important to work with a lawyer who is experienced in this practice area.
In addition to the attorneys, look for the law firm with experienced personnel including paralegals, and researchers who have access to the resources and experts needed to build a strong case for you. This may include investigators as well as a team to analyze, negotiate, and litigate if needed on your behalf.
In addition, it’s not just the support team your slip and fall lawyer has, but the way they conduct themselves which is critical.
You are not a legal professional–your lawyer should be able to explain the process to you in terms you can understand. Further, the attorney-client relationship that is established should be one of mutual respect and trust–where you are able to speak openly and know your attorney is listening.
Finding a compassionate and dedicated team can be difficult, but it is worthwhile.
Not all lawyers are equipped to handle a slip and fall accident. Instead, you will want to focus on a premises liability lawyer.
Because of the nuances of premises liability law, it will be critical for the success of your case that your lawyer is well-versed in premises liability in your state and is prepared to go the extra mile for you.
Remember, at minimum, a property owner needs to alert you of a dangerous condition. But when they know of the condition and do nothing to remedy it, and someone gets hurt, there are many criteria that need to be met to prove negligence successfully.
