When Should I Hire A Slip And Fall Attorney?
Have You Suffered an Injury?
If you experienced a slip and fall accident while on the job or in a public place, you may be wondering if you need to hire a slip and fall attorney. If you suffered an injury due to your accident, then contacting an attorney is something you should consider. However, if you have not suffered any injury, or your injury was not bad enough to seek medical treatment, you do not need to contact a slip and fall attorney. Without sustaining an injury that requires medical treatment, you will not qualify to file a lawsuit.
That being said, if you have suffered an injury, here are a few questions you should ask yourself before contacting a slip and fall attorney in Georgia:
Does my injury require medical attention?
- How long will my injury impair me from my everyday life?
- Was my injury caused by my mistake or someone else’s negligence?
- Will I be compensated for my lost wages?
- Will my medical bills be covered?
These questions will help you decide if contacting a personal injury attorney is necessary. Most slip and fall cases are often challenging to handle alone, and most insurers will rarely acknowledge liability to an unrepresented person. You will not get very far handling a slip and fall case on your own.
I met with Harry Brown personally and he sat with me for 20 minutes at our initial consultation to explain everything. He even called after my surgery to see how I was doing. I met with him several more times after that and was kept informed about my case throughout. I highly recommend Harry Brown as an attorney.
If you want your case settled, you and your slip and fall attorney will have to prove the defendant was negligent, and their negligence caused you to suffer an injury.
A first-rate slip and fall attorney will examine the scene of the accident, discuss all possible outcomes, and help you figure out exactly why and how you were injured. The attorney will put a case together to prove the defendant’s negligence.
Your slip and fall attorney will need the proper documentation for lost wages and medical records regarding the accident. This process can be complicated and time-consuming. Your personal injury attorney will make sure there is a sufficient legal conclusion that your accident caused the injuries you were treated for. Your slip and fall attorney will also review your pain and suffering to represent you in the best possible light to the insurer.
