A Skilled Lawyer Can Advise You of Your Rights
Before negotiating a settlement or filing a lawsuit, you need to understand your legal rights. Personal injury law is complex, and failing to understand your rights and obligations can put your financial recovery at risk.
Your attorney could help you understand if you have a viable case for compensation. Generally, this requires evidence that negligence played a part in your accident. However, legal pitfalls could also put your case at risk, like the statute of limitations—the deadline that applies to every slip and fall injury case. If you file your lawsuit after the expiration of this deadline, the court will likely dismiss your case.
Negotiating a Settlement
Many premises liability claims never result in legal action. It is not uncommon for these cases to be resolved through a negotiated settlement before filing a lawsuit. An attorney could give you the best chance of a fair settlement by negotiating with the other party or their insurance carrier.
Filing a Lawsuit
If settlement negotiations do not produce a fair offer, it is time to go to trial. Your legal representative will guide you through the legal process, which can include meeting all deadlines, interviewing relevant witnesses, gathering evidence, and potentially identifying expert witnesses.
