What mistakes should I avoid after a slip and fall injury?
When people come to my office after they’ve been injured in a slip and fall accident in Pennsylvania, one of the biggest mistakes I see is they wait too long to get treatment. They wait weeks thinking that their injury is going to heal on its own and it doesn’t. Then what you have is a gap in treatment that’s going to affect the value of your case later on.
The second biggest mistake I see people make is hiring the wrong attorney. You can’t hire a friend who dabbles in personal injury just because he or she is your friend. In order to maximize the value of your case, you need to hire somebody who knows what they’re doing. You need to hire an attorney who does personal injury on a daily basis and who’s preparing a case for trial from day one.
An attorney who does this on a daily basis and who has handled these cases in the past will have a true understanding of the value of your case. When an offer is made by the insurance company, they’ll be better prepared to advise you as to whether to accept it or reject it. If you do reject it, they’d be better prepared to take your case to trial.
