Falling down is embarrassing. And some people might just pick themselves up and get out of the area as soon as possible without documenting their fall and collecting evidence to support a potential claim. Of course, we never talk to those folks as many of them simply walk away from potential claims. If you look around, though, you’ll find that many personal injury attorneys, such as those in our office, will provide a free consultation to help you see if you even have a case. Seeking competent legal counsel early can be the difference in whether you have a case or not. For example, if you fell in an apartment parking lot and you didn’t take pictures of what the scene looked like, it might be very difficult two months later to paint a picture when it’s 70 degrees outside. From our experience, when you get injured in a fall, often you are not even thinking about preserving evidence for a possible claim – or lawsuit. That’s why it’s important to take advantage of the free consultation. Getting an attorney on your slip and fall case as soon as possible will help increase the odds of a successful outcome.
At the Kramer Law Group, we offer a free review of your case to see if it has the components that make for a winning case and advise you of evidence we think will help strengthen your case. It costs nothing to see if there’s something there. During our meeting with you, we’ll listen to your story and if we think there is merit to your case, will investigate deeper to see if we can satisfy the requirements for such a claim under Utah law. If you hire us, we’ll develop a proactive strategy to clinch the evidence quickly that will help improve the chances of success down the road. We’ll look at your injuries and calculate your medical bills, lost wages and future lost wages, and examine how your fall might affect your ability to earn a living. We’ll then collect all supporting records, bills, expert opinions, and other evidence, and attempt negotiation with the property owner and their insurance company.
The reality is that most personal injury cases, including slip and fall or premises liability cases, will be settled out of court. In the event that it does not, we will take your case to trial and present it to a jury of your peers.
