Slip and fall accidents can cause serious injuries, and they are often the result of property owner negligence. If you fell because someone else failed to take adequate care of their property, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your financial and non-financial losses.
Understandably, many people don’t want to file a lawsuit or go to court. Unfortunately, they may also assume that they don’t need a Pensacola personal injury lawyer. While you are not required to be represented by an attorney, non-lawyers are at a significant disadvantage, even during the settlement process.
Insurance companies will try to settle your claim for as little as possible. They will demand that you prove what happened and require you to submit extensive documentation concerning the accident and the injuries you suffered. They will also pressure you to settle your claim as quickly as possible, often before you even know the extent of your injuries or what your total losses will be. This can be overwhelming when you’re in pain and trying to focus on your recovery.
Meanwhile, every insurance company works closely with in-house legal experts and outside attorneys to determine how they should handle your claim. As a result, they know the law and understand how it will apply to your case. They use this knowledge to shape their strategy. Doing so can give them a tremendous advantage if they know you don’t want to go to court.
The bottom line is that the insurance company is not on your side, even when they are responsive and cooperative. Working with an experienced Pensacola personal injury lawyer levels the playing field. Here are some of the ways that an attorney can help with your claim:
Generally speaking, non-lawyers settle their claims for far less than what they are worth. A Pensacola personal injury lawyer can make sure you get fair compensation for your injuries.
If you cannot settle your claim, going to court is your only option to get the compensation you deserve. Unfortunately, the legal process is extraordinarily difficult for non-lawyers to navigate. A procedural mistake can jeopardize your entire claim. For example, your case may be dismissed because you failed to meet a deadline. You may not be able to submit critical evidence because you did not follow the appropriate rules. The insurance company will be represented by counsel who will take advantage of your lack of legal experience.
A Pensacola personal injury lawyer will know how to navigate the legal process, including knowing when the deadlines are, what documents have to be submitted, what evidence you will need, and how to prepare your case for trial. Also, they will know the law and how it applies to your case. This knowledge is invaluable, as they will provide guidance as to when you should settle and when you should proceed to trial.
If you, your child or any other member of your family has been seriously injured in an accident, you do not have to let the accident take control of your life.
