The steps your personal injury lawyer will take
After a slip and fall injury, you may need to seek compensation from the negligent parties and their insurance company to cover things like lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering. There are a number of steps an effective personal injury attorney will take when approaching your case:
- Investigate the accident. One of the first steps is to examine the accident and the details surrounding it. This likely involves visiting the scene and finding out exactly what happened, and if there was negligence on the part of the property owner.
- Obtain witness statements. If one or more other people saw your accident, they can significantly support the validity of your case. These witness account provide an important third party, unbiased perspective on the incident.
- Seek expert advice. Engineers and other experts can help determine what caused the accident and who is at fault. They can also testify on your behalf in court, if needed.
- Consult local permits. It’s important to check with local government agencies to see if the owner had the right permits for the property at the time of the accident. If not, it can support your argument that negligence or improper maintenance was involved.
