Do I really need a trip and fall attorney when the other side knows they’re responsible for my fall? Isn’t it simple enough to represent myself? After all, I got injured, and it wasn’t my fault—why should I be financially responsible for my injuries?
Personal injury cases are rarely that straightforward. Insurance companies make it difficult to obtain the money to heal from your injuries and move on. The insurance adjuster’s job is to settle your case for as little as they can—saving their employer money while leaving you to foot the bill.

Establish Fault & Liability.
For any personal injury case, it is essential to prove the other party is at fault and liable for your injuries. Without this, your case goes nowhere.
Our practiced personal injury lawyers investigate the cause of your injuries and examine the scene of the accident. We know the intricacies of the local, state, and federal laws that pertain to your case and how to apply them to best support our personal injury claim.
Gather Strong Evidence.
It is imperative to demonstrate the effects and extent of your injuries through proper documentation, whether working with a premises liability lawyer for a slip-and-fall injury or an auto accident lawyer after a car crash. A skilled lawyer will gather evidence on your behalf so that you can focus on healing.
Strong evidence to support a personal injury claim will include after-visit summaries and medical bills, as well as statements from medical experts familiar with the effects of your injuries. Being seen by a physician the day or soon after will help strengthen a case.
The cause of your injuries will dictate additional evidence that can help your case, such as police reports, photos of the accident scene or your injuries, or witness statements. After reviewing your case, our experienced personal injury lawyers will determine what evidence to gather to obtain the best outcome.
Negotiate & Litigate.
The at-fault party’s insurance company is likely to reach out to offer a low-ball settlement amount in the days following an accident. There is no way of knowing what an acceptable offer is early in the process unless you only suffer from minor injuries. Only when your injuries are healed (or as healed as they’re going to be) can you know the full financial impact of your accident.
Once we’re on your case, we communicate on your behalf. We will discuss your terms and define what you think is a reasonable offer when it’s time. Then we negotiate with the other party’s insurance company to obtain a fair settlement.
If we can’t reach a fair negotiation, our personal injury lawyers are prepared to go to trial to get the best possible outcome for your case.
