New Jersey Slip and Fall Attorneys
When a person slips or trips and then falls, how they fall and the surface they fall onto can both be significant factors in determining how severe the injuries caused by the fall will be. Many slip and fall accident cases center on dangerous property conditions and whether property owners were aware of such hazards. People who have been involved in slip and fall accidents need to understand that property owners and their insurance companies will both be very likely to claim that you were the party at fault for your accident.

Do I Need A Slip and Fall Lawyer?
Both the property owner and their insurance company are likely to argue that you were at fault for your slip and fall accident, so you will immediately be dealing with a situation in which you will have to prove that another party was to blame for your accident. You will want to seek an attorney for assistance with this because they can conduct their own independent investigation that will be incredibly beneficial to you.
A lawyer is going to know what kinds of evidence to seek during this investigation, but you must keep in mind that you can often get some of the most important types of evidence in these cases when you can take pictures of your accident scene. Keep in mind that many public property owners will quickly correct the dangers that caused falls, and evidence will disappear, but your photographs of a dangerous scene will often be sufficient for demonstrating what caused your accident.
You will also want to have an attorney deal with an insurance company for you because you cannot trust the insurer to ever be on your side, even when agents are trying very hard to relate to you and act sympathetic. Representatives from insurance companies could present their conversations as just being attempts to gather information, but many of the questions you could be asked are specifically designed to elicit damaging responses that may be recorded and used against you.
An insurance company could also go a different route and quickly offer you a lump sum amount to settle your case, but this figure is almost always a mere fraction of what you are entitled to. You will want a lawyer who will always be on your side and committed to securing only a just settlement to your case, and they can file a lawsuit when an acceptable settlement offer is not presented.
