Slip and fall cases vary person to person. There are a number of outliers that determine the severity of the injury sustained. Some of these factors include the age of the individual, the attire worn at the scene of the accident, the positioning of the fall, and the surrounding objects, to name a few. You may be questioning whether your Slip and Fall case is worthy in the eyes of the insurer.
When you hire a personal injury lawyer, the first thing to be done is investigations. Your lawyer will gather all evidence, starting with video surveillance of the scene of the accident. The surveillance will reveal what exactly happened leading up to the fall. Further, witness statements will be gathered from bystanders, if contact information can be made available. Next, your lawyer will gather all relevant medical records that support your claim of the injuries sustained. These medical reports will either make or break your case.
Through investigation, if your lawyer is thorough and gathers all relevant supporting documents and evidence, you may receive a settlement offer from the opposing party. However, sometimes this settlement may not be the best possible result for your claim. Your lawyer is there to navigate you through a good settlement offer and a bad one, always looking out for your best interest.
