When to File a Slip and Fall Lawsuit

Slip and Fall

Many people believe that after they have suffered a Slip and Fall with associated injuries, the first course of business should be to sue or they should contact Slip and Fall Attorneys and then sue.  The truth is that in most cases it is not necessary to sue the property owner responsible for the Slip and Fall at all, though it is always advisable to contact Slip and Fall Attorneys.

The truth is that the vast majority of Slip and Fall cases can be resolved without the need to resort to filing a lawsuit.  With the help of Slip and Fall Attorneys most Slip and Fall cases can be negotiated to a settlement.  This does not mean that your Slip and Fall Attorneys will be able to do this overnight, as it will be necessary for you to complete medical treatment and for your Slip and Fall Attorneys to obtain your medical records.  Once this is done, your Slip and Fall Attorneys will be able to negotiate with the insurance company and hopefully achieve a settlement that is satisfactory to you.

Unfortunately, while Slip and Fall Attorneys are able to achieve this conclusion in the vast majority of Slip and Fall cases, there are those instances where your position and the position of the insurance company just cannot be bridged, despite the best efforts of your Slip and Fall Attorneys.  At that point, your Slip and Fall Attorneys may recommend that they file a lawsuit on your behalf but that is usually after extensive negotiation has already taken place between the insurance company and your Slip and Fall Attorneys.
