Need an Atlanta Slip and Fall Attorney?

Slip and fall accidents can happen to anyone regardless of age. When a hazardous item or liquid on someone else’s property causes you to fall, you probably have a slip and fall claim. If you are considering speaking to a lawyer after a fall, you are not alone. Never let the stigma of speaking with a lawyer prevent you from calling a law firm. You must protect yourself and your family when you experience mounting medical bills and lost income after a serious fall. Our team at the Coker Accident Lawyers are here to help.

Understanding Slip and Fall Incidents

Slip and falls can happen almost anywhere, but there are a few places where they are most common: grocery stores, retail shops, restaurants, and parking lots. In most cases, a person slips on a liquid like water or trips on a crack or pothole in a parking lot. Unfortunately, you do not automatically win your case just because you fell on someone else’s property. You still have a duty to prove the property owner failed to clean up or correct the hazardous item in a reasonable amount of time. A reasonable amount of time is determined by a jury after hearing about what is normal for businesses in similar situations. Our slip and fall lawyers have handled hundreds of slip and fall cases successfully and we understand what evidence is needed to prove negligence. We can advise you on your legal rights and options.

Do I Need a Lawyer After a Slip and Fall?

If your injuries are minor or if you don’t want to bother with an insurance claim, you do not have to hire a slip and fall lawyer to represent you. But if the fall was serious, you have medical bills, or the injuries have disrupted your life, our recommendation is always to at least speak with a slip and fall lawyer for a free consultation. While every situation is unique, having a trusted legal advocate by your side as you go up against the powerful lawyers at major corporations can greatly increase your chances of obtaining fair compensation. A strong slip and fall lawyer will preserve evidence, negotiate with the company or their insurance company, and even fight for you in court if needed.

Our Approach to Slip and Fall Cases

Our lawyers have handled hundreds of slip and fall cases, yet no two cases are the same. While our team has seen the same insurance company arguments hundreds of times, how you attack those arguments varies based on the specific facts of your case. We take a personalized approach to every case that we settle. We listen to your story, review video evidence, and develop a legal strategy that is specific to you and your needs. Our legal experience in the court room gives us an advantage over many other firms who have not handled major fall cases like us. When your slip and fall attorney understands the specific strengths and weaknesses of your case, he or she can ensure that you receive the amount of compensation that you deserve under the law.

The Benefits of Hiring the Coker Accident Lawyers for Your Fall Case

Legal Experience. Our lawyers have the experience you need to put you in the best position to win your case. Your case will be handled by an experienced slip and fall lawyer, not a low-level employee.

A Complete Investigation. Did you know that after a fall, companies go into self-preservation mode and take steps to minimize your chances of getting the compensation you deserve? An experienced slip and fall lawyer, doing an immediate investigation, can protect your legal rights.

Negotiation Skills. Insurance companies will do and say anything to minimize payouts. An inexperienced or timid lawyer cannot understand when an insurance company has a strong argument or when they are bluffing. Our team’s experience gives you the upper hand in the negotiations.

Trial Skills. At the end of the day, no one wants to go to court, but sometimes court is a necessity. Insurance companies know which lawyers and law firms are willing to go to court when needed. Hiring the wrong law firm without a reputation for trial victories can severely harm the chances of a settlement in your case.

Steps to Take After a Slip and Fall

  1. Notify the Store Manager. Always report the fall so that the business can complete an incident report and document that the incident happened. Never sign anything but ask for a copy of the incident report or ask to snap a photo with your cell phone.
  2. Document the Scene. Take photographs of whatever caused you to fall. Photographing the item next to an everyday item like a dollar bill, a coin, or your shoe will help show the size of the hazard.
  3. Seek Medical Attention. If you feel you are injured, trust your body, and seek medical care. Seek care immediately so the insurance company does not say you waited too long.
  4. Preserve Evidence. Place your footwear and clothing in a bag for safekeeping. The clothes and shoes you were wearing could be critical evidence in the case.
  5. Call a Lawyer. If you were injured, do not try to navigate the case alone. Slip and fall cases are full of pitfalls. Inexperienced victims and lawyers can easily fall into the insurance company traps.
