An Injury Attorney Provides Legal Assistance In Premises Liability Matters
Consult with an injury attorney as soon as possible after getting hurt at a commercial business property. If the owner is found to be at-fault they may be held liable, and your attorney can file legal action seeking financial compensation for your injuries.
Property owners and business managers have a responsibility to keep their customers safe from danger while on the premises. This type of responsibility, in legal terms, is referred to as the duty of care. Some examples of this duty of care include making sure parking lots, steps, sidewalks and the like are kept clear of ice and debris and are in good repair. Spills should be mopped up, aisles kept free of boxes and ladders, and other reasonable precautions must be taken to prevent falls. There are numerous other specifics pertaining to premises liability claims that an injury attorney is familiar with and capable of addressing in a court of law.
While not all injuries require a lot of medical attention, in some cases, recovering compensation is a vital necessity. Serious injuries such as broken bones, head injuries, burns and internal damage, for example, can involve extensive medical care, including hospitalization, long-term rehabilitation, and even lifetime disability. When you factor in your pain and suffering and potential loss of income, hiring an experienced injury attorney to help you file a claim for compensation is often the best recourse.
You are not legally obligated to hire a lawyer in a premises liability case. In fact, you might not even give it a thought. This can be a huge mistake, especially in a situation where you accept the first offer you receive from the insurance company or property owner. We understand how you may be tempted to do that when you’re not getting a paycheck because your injuries prevent you from working. Bills are piling up and money is tight, and it can be hard to turn down what seems like a generous offer.
But don’t rush into anything, because the truth is, the insurance company is not interested in taking care of your needs; they just want to pay as little as they can get by with, and avoid a lawsuit. You, on the other hand, must think about taking care of your needs both now and in the future. For that reason, we strongly caution you to not sign anything or accept any offers from the insurance company until you have talked to an injury lawyer.
A personal injury lawyer has a thorough knowledge of premises liability laws and the legal system. He or she will research all the circumstances surrounding your accident and find out everything there is to know about your specific injuries. Further, they will study pertinent case law, gather evidence and compile relevant information to develop the most effective strategy for presenting your claim and issue a letter of demand for compensation from the insurance company.
More significantly, an injury attorney has experience negotiating with insurance companies. This is important for several reasons, but in particular, because there are no guarantees that the insurance company will agree to the initial demand and just write you a check. In fact, they virtually never do that. When it comes to negotiating the dollar amount of the compensation you need, your injury attorney is fully committed to driving a hard bargain and protecting your best interests. You need an injury lawyer who will aggressively pursue a claim for compensation, facing all of challenges head-on.
