When you are involved in a slip and fall accident it can be a confusing time and you may think you have no options. Then you realize that someone else caused you to injure yourself and broke their duty of care to you. This means you will need to find the best Delaware County slip and fall attorney that can protect your rights and obtain compensation on your behalf.
It is important to not make any statements that may place you at fault. You should obtain as much evidence as possible at the scene and get contact information for any witnesses as this will become useful to your attorney down the line.
Contingency fee basis
One of the things you should look for in a Delaware County slip and fall attorney is whether they work on a contingency fee basis. This means that the client does not owe any fees to the attorney unless the case is won. If you find a personal injury attorney that does not work on a contingency fee basis then this may not be the right attorney for you.
While you may think that your case is small and that you will not ever need to go to trial, you will still need to find a Delaware County slip and fall attorney who is ready to take it all the way. A case may go to trial if the property owner and their insurance company refuse to accept any liability.
They may try to postpone the proceedings for as long as possible at which point a trial date may need to be set. If you have an attorney who is not familiar with or does not have any trial experience you may be setting yourself up for failure. Find a Delaware county slip and fall attorney with extensive trial experience from the beginning should your case become more complex than expected.
While you may think that you solely need a slip and fall attorney in Delaware County, you will also need to consider other practice areas they have experience in. At Kwartler Manu, LLC we have experience in various personal injury areas such as:
- Car accidents
- Construction accident
