Imagine, for a moment, leaving your own surgery up to yourself. The time it would take to read up on the procedure, the work involved, the preparation for the big event, and all the other components needed to perform the operation successfully would likely take weeks, if not months, to accomplish.
So, why do we leave our surgeries up to doctors and surgeons? The answer is clear; we value their experience and their ability to streamline these procedures. With this said, slip and fall accidents are highly prevalent in our society—but with an experienced slip and fall accident attorney on your side, you can streamline even this process with ease and get back to life in no time.
The question is, how do these attorneys truly make a difference and get you back on your feet faster than you could? What is stopping you from doing it yourself? To answer this, let’s look at the three ways an attorney can make your case a walk in the park today.
- Experience in the Courtroom Makes all the Difference
Just as a surgeon knows a procedure and the room it is performed in like the back of their hand, a qualified slip and fall accident attorney will know how to handle a slip and fall case and how the courtroom typically responds to a case of your sort.
Although you could absolutely choose to represent yourself in order to save money or be completely in charge of your case, the truth is that an experienced attorney will have the knowledge and credentials to state your case with ease and help you receive the most out of your damages request.
- Slip and Fall Cases can be Tricky
Just as experience in the courtroom can help to make all the difference, knowledge of how to approach a slip and fall case is essential. According to Law Firms, “over one million Americans suffer a slip, trip, and fall injury and over 17, 000 people die in the U.S. annually because of these injuries. Slip, trip and fall injuries make up 15 percent of all job-related injuries, which account for between 12 and 15 percent of all Workers’ Compensation expenses.”
With these kinds of statistics, slip and fall injuries make up a large percentage of workman’s comp cases which typically consist of one individual against an entire company and their legal representation. This can become tricky very quickly and lead to a bust in court if not handled by a professional attorney.
- Having a Good Case can Increase Your Chances of Being Compensated for Your Troubles
Lastly, the final reason to work with a slip and fall accident attorney is because a good case tends to increase the chances of you being given compensation for your accident. While most slip and fall accident cases request some kind of damages be repaid, the more solidified and irrefutable your case, the more you will be given in exchange for your situation.
This is where having an attorney that can compile all of your expenses and damages is essential. With this information being stated appropriately, you could make more in return than you even asked for and be able to at least leave this situation on a slightly more positive note.
