There is no debate about the fact that you experienced an accident. What remains to be determined is if another party is responsible for the event. That’s where consulting with a slip and fall lawyer comes into the picture. Here are two ways that the lawyer can help.
Evaluating The Merits Of Your Case
The slip and fall lawyer will want to know all about the accident from your point of view. That includes everything that you remember from before, during, and after the event. If there were witnesses, the lawyer will want a list of names. Any records of medical treatment are also helpful. The goal is to evaluate your case and make a preliminary determination about your case. If the lawyer believes there is enough evidence to seek damages, the consultation can progress to the next step.
Going Over Your Options
Assuming the slip and fall lawyer believes you have a case, the conversation will turn to going over your options. After filing the case, there may be the potential for negotiating a settlement. If the other party does not wasn’t to negotiate or you’re not satisfied with the offer, the case can continue to the court. Your legal counsel will help you understand each approach and what could happen as a result.
Don’t assume you have no rights or that your case is crystal clear. Seek advice from a lawyer and determine what to do next. The counsel that you receive will help you make an informed decision.
