In a trip and fall lawsuit, just like with almost any lawsuit, there is no guarantee of a certain monetary award. While a skilled personal injury attorney can examine the facts of your case to determine a potential estimate for damages, this does not mean the insurance company will agree. Your attorney needs to be experienced in fighting insurance companies in order to get what your injuries deserve.
If you were injured in a trip and fall accident, your attorney will likely ask you a few pertinent questions in order to help determine if you have a case. These questions include:
- Where was the accident?
- Did the accident take place on private or public property?
- What is the extent and severity of your injuries?
- What were the conditions surrounding the accident?
- Was the defendant wholly or partially responsible for the accident?
This list of questions is not exhaustive. To discuss your potential trip and fall case, contact an experienced accident attorney.
Some attorneys are not truthful when meeting with potential clients. They mislead the individual, wanting the person to believe that their case is worth far more than it actually is, and putting the victim through even more than necessary.
Accurately Determining Value
There are many trip and fall cases that result in server and life changing injuries including traumatic head injuries, spinal cord injuries, and broken bones.
