Sometimes it can seem intimidating working with an attorney to handle your claim for your slip and fall case.

It doesn’t have to be.

We’ve prepared an outline of things you can expect when working with us.

Our goal is to give you the information you need so that we can review your case quickly and deliver the best possible result.

When you call us, you can rest assured that you’re calling an experienced team that will listen to your case and outline the best plan of attack for pursuing your claim.

  1. Expectation Setting. The initial call or appointment is a free case review to gather information and establish if there is a case for your fall injury. You will talk to an experienced personal injury attorney, not a secretary or a paralegal, and we will spend time gathering the details of your case. After we review these details, we will let you know if you have a case and what the next steps are.
  2. Understand fees and expenses. Every case is unique. When we work through your case, we will make sure you understand the potential costs that may be associated with pursuing your claim so that you can make an informed decision. Outside of attorneys’ fees, typical costs can include fees for obtaining medical records, police reports, court filing fees, and fees for expert opinions. These fees are rarely, if ever, out of pocket, but we will still make sure you understand them.
  3. Details of the Incident. Location, date, and time of the incident as well as your account of what happened are crucial to understanding your case. We recommend writing your account shortly after the incident, or even taking photos or video if you are able. The longer you go without recording the incident, the fuzzier the events can get. We also work with witnesses to gain a clear understanding of the events.
  4. Witness Contact Information. It is important to have witness contact information so we can get their account of the incident.

The sooner you call a personal injury lawyer regarding your slip & fall injury with information about the incident, the sooner we can help you get the outcome you deserve.
