After being seriously injured in a trip or slip and fall accident, your health should be your top priority. Seeking immediate medical care could improve the outcome of your treatment and put you in a better position to bring a claim for your medical bills and other accident-related expenses.
Once your health has stabilized, you should contact a slip and fall lawyer right away for a case evaluation. Seeking legal counsel at the earliest point in time is especially important after slip and fall accidents because CCTV camera footage may be erased, and the hazard that caused your injuries could be fixed. Without this evidence, it may be more challenging to prove negligence and liability.
At Frankl & Kominsky, we know that time is of the essence in any personal injury claim. Our legal team will perform an immediate investigation into your accident, try to compile evidence of liability and damages, talk to witnesses, and take other steps to try to strengthen your claim before heading into settlement negotiations.
Besides gathering evidence before it becomes unavailable, we will also handle all correspondence with insurance adjusters. It is likely that you will get a phone call from the liable party's insurance company within days of your accident. This phone call may be recorded, in which case anything you say may possibly be used to dispute your claim.
The lawyers at Frankl & Kominsky will serve as your legal advocates through the entire claims process-handling dialogue with the insurance company, tracking your damages, and helping you and your family try to fight for the compensation you deserve.How Much Is My Slip and Fall Case Worth?
The injuries suffered in slip and fall accidents can be debilitating. Broken hips, brain trauma, fractured bones, back injuries, soft tissue damage-any of these injuries can cost thousands to treat and leave you sidelined from work for weeks or even months. In severe cases, slip and fall victims can never return to the same profession.
The value of your claim depends on many factors. No attorney can promise a specific outcome for your case, but the premises liability lawyers at Frankl & Kominsky can try to make sure your claim includes all potentially recoverable damages. Besides medical bills, lost income, and reduced earning capacity, you may be entitled to non-economic damages such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment in life, and physical impairment.
Proving damages is an important element in any personal injury claim. You should expect the defendant and insurance company to look for reasons to dispute the value of your claim, so it is critical that you do not say or do anything that would bring the severity of your injuries into question. Keep these tips in mind:
- Do not speak to the insurance adjuster or defendant without your slip and fall attorney's permission;
- Do not accept a settlement offer without your attorney's permission;
- Do not miss any doctor's appointments;
- Follow all of your doctor's instructions; and
- Do not publish photos of yourself on social media or post anything about your case. In fact, it's best to stay off social networking websites until your claim has been settled.
