Hiring a Lawyer After a Trip and Fall Accident

Alvine Weidenaar, Personal Injury

If you’ve suffered from a personal injury due to a trip and fall accident, often the last thing on your mind is pursuing legal action. You might want to forget the whole thing, or you’re simply focused on recovering from your injuries. 

Accidents are always a shock, and sometimes embarrassing. This makes it easy to overlook any responsibility on another’s part. A trip and fall case is especially tricky as there’s usually no second party present to blame. 

But if you’ve suffered from a personal injury in any way, and it wasn’t your fault, you should be compensated! This time can be stressful and confusing, but if you act quickly in seeking an accident lawyer, you’ll be way more likely to get the compensation you deserve.     

Why do you need an accident lawyer?

Be taken seriously 
If you try to take on your case yourself, you’re putting yourself in a vulnerable position. It’s important to remember that you’re going up against an insurance company, not just against the business or property owner. If you’re unrepresented, an insurance company is highly unlikely to accept liability. They’re likely to assume that you don’t take your case seriously, and that the case itself is weak.

A trip and fall lawyer will automatically draw respect from the insurance company and allow a much smoother channel of communication. Having a professional represent you and your case will put you in a much stronger position. 

Objective Representation
It may seem like the easiest solution to simply represent yourself, but it’s pretty much impossible to be objective when you’ve been personally affected. Emotions can run high, and as neutral as you think you could be, it’s easier said than done.

Without an objective party on your side, you could seriously hinder your case. Why run the risk? An accident lawyer will give you objective and professional representation, saving you a lot of stress and hassle, and getting you the best possible outcome.  

Without legal representation for your trip and fall case, you leave yourself in an easy position to be looked over. Insurance companies are likely to delay your case by being slow to respond and taking advantage of your lack of legal support. 

Our accident lawyers know the ins and outs of trip and fall cases. They know the best ways to move things forward and how to avoid any unnecessary, and sometimes deliberate, delays.
