What should I do after a slip and fall injury?
If you’ve been involved in a trip and fall/slip and fall, what should you do immediately? You should pull out your phone and start taking pictures because, typically, it’s going to involve a hazard. If you get a picture of that hazard, pictures are worth a thousand words. Number two, find out in your community if you have a trial lawyer that’s worth their salt. Trial lawyers try cases; settle and sign lawyers don’t try cases. Ask around, ask who tries cases, and ask that particular lawyer how many trip and fall cases they’ve tried and what their success rate is.
Why do you need a trial lawyer? These cases often go to trial. Why is that? Because insurance companies devalue these cases. They think that a jury is going to be persuaded that the person who was injured tripped over their own two feet. That’s not what happens in these cases. These cases go to trial at a higher percentage than other cases.
Finally, do not ever talk to an insurance company. They’re going to pretend they’re your best friend; they’re not. They’re out to save their client or their company money. If you do all those things, I think you’re going to be okay.
