Do I need a lawyer for my slip and fall claim, or can I do it on my own?

 

A:

Although you may know that your slip and fall injury was cause by a negligent store owner or other property owner, the insurance company for the other side may feel differently. Even if the case seems cut and dry, insurance companies are known for attempting to limit their liability in such cases.

In order to show that you mean business, you will need to file a Florida premises liability lawsuit against the responsible party. Most of the time, cases are settled outside of court through negotiations. However, sometimes cases go to trial. In either event, you will want a skilled Sarasota premises liability lawyer on your side that will do the following:

  • Investigate the evidence
  • Establish negligence
  • Negotiate with the insurer
  • Prepare your case for trial
  • Ensure you are receiving fair compensation

Experienced personal injury attorneys know that in order to win your case, several facts must be established. Your lawyer has to prove that the property owner created the dangerous condition, knew about the hazard or should have known about it, and failed to fix the dangerous condition. Although you can negotiate with the insurance company on your own, trying to establish fault and strengthen your case can be very difficult and overwhelming.

When trying to prove your case to the insurance company, it is essential to have a skilled Sarasota slip and fall lawyer on your side to help you get the most compensation possible. For a free consultation, contact the Mallard Law Firm at 888-409-3805 today.
