Slip & Fall- Reasons to Speak to an Attorney
Slip & Fall accidents may seem trivial, but when these incidents become serious, life-altering or substantial injuries, it’s important to recognize the enormous impact a slip & fall can have on your life. Slip & Fall injuries can be your own fault, but sometimes, they may be due to another person’s negligence.
Regardless of the severity of your case, it is always a good idea to talk to an attorney about your injury. Remember, with Sgro & Roger, it’s free.
The top 3 reasons why you need an attorney after a slip & fall:
1.) Attorneys can prove liability.
As long as your attorney demonstrates that the opposing party in this Slip and Fall incident was at fault, usually by displaying outright negligence.
2.) Attorneys sort through evidence and find additional witnesses.
Attorneys can gather additional evidence, talk to witnesses and sometimes find other Slip & Fall victim cases on the same property that could really benefit your case. Additional evidence can usually prove that the property knew about the issue that caused the injury and chose to blatantly ignore it.
3.) Attorneys deal with other attorneys and courts so that you don’t have to.
Slip & Fall trials can enter mediation in which the defendant’s attorney comes up with a settlement that satisfies both parties involved. With an attorney, this process is taken care of and an attorney handles all of this. They file claims, appeals and negotiate settlements providing you with the tools you need to settle your case.
