If you've been the victim of a slip and fall accident, you may be wondering why you need a lawyer. Often, property owners are more than willing to take responsibility after an accident happened on their premises. But when it comes to slip and fall accidents, property owners and managers are rarely the sole individuals responsible for your compensation – more often than not, insurance companies are the primary parties responsible for your payment.
Dealing with the insurance company can be tricky. It's the job of adjusters and other insurance professionals to minimize the costs of your claim and deprive you of compensation to which you may be entitled. Having an experienced slip and fall lawyer on your side may mean the difference between getting the money you deserve and losing out on the funds that you need to cover medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses.
Depending on the facts, you may have a claim against your neighbor or her landlord. You may even have a claim against a completely different third party.
That's why contacting a lawyer is so important when you've been involved in a slip and fall accident. An experienced lawyer knows the right questions to ask and can coordinate a thorough investigation to determine who's responsible for your injuries.
