Do You Have a Slip and Fall Injury?

A slip and fall accident can happen to anyone just about anywhere, a supermarket, a vacant lot, or even at someone’s home. Depending upon the seriousness of the injury and your particular situation, you may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages.

Slip and Fall Legal Issues

To be compensated, the slip must be caused by someone failing to safely maintain the property, such as milk spilled on a supermarket floor, or a hole in the ground without a sign warning of the danger. Your legal status at the time of the slip and fall is also an issue, but a Chesapeake personal injury lawyer can tell you if you have a case.

When to Hire a Lawyer

It is in your best interest to get legal help early on in addressing your situation. There are times when hiring a lawyer quickly is critical to your case, such as if you are charged with a crime. It may also be in your best interest to have a lawyer review the fine print before signing legal documents. A lawyer can also help you get the compensation you deserve if you’ve suffered a serious injury. For issues where money or property is at stake, having a lawyer guide you through the complexities of the legal system can save you time, hassle, and possibly a lot of grief in the long run.

How to Prepare for Your Initial Consultation

Prepare for your consultation by writing down notes of your understanding of the case, jot down questions and concerns for the attorney, and gather your documents. Remember that you are trying to get a sense of whether the attorney has your trust and can help you address your legal issues. Questions should include how the attorney intends to resolve your issue, how many years he/she has been practicing law and specifically practicing in your area, as well as how many cases similar to yours the attorney has handled. It can also be helpful to broach the subject of fees so that you understand the likely cost and structure of your representation by a specific attorney and/or legal team.

Points to Consider Before Hiring a Lawyer

Experience. Regardless of the type of legal matter you need help with, an experienced attorney will usually be able to get you better results.

Competence. Determine an attorney’s expertise by asking about their track record for the issue you need help with resolving.

Fit. There are plenty of good attorneys out there; make sure you find one you are comfortable working with.
