Slip and fall accidents commonly occur in the most ordinary places, including supermarkets, cinemas, and other places of business. A slip and fall law firm can help investigate possible causes for your injury. When a property occupier fails to reasonably maintain the property, the injured party can sue for damages in civil court. You may be wondering what the process is like. When you work with Preszler Law in Kamloops, we keep you informed every step of the way, so you never feel in limbo.
Find Expert Medical Care in Kamloops
Your slip and fall lawyer does so much more than paperwork. Initially, you will need to find the best possible medical care for your particular injuries. If you already have a medical provider you are comfortable with, we will work with them to gather all your medical records and secure expert testimony.
In the aftermath of an injury, it is imperative that you see your doctor, follow all instructions, notify your doctor of any concerns you have, and keep all follow-up appointments. Keeping a diary of how you’re feeling day to day can be a helpful piece of evidence in your case.
Injury Recovery Can Be Costly and Take a Long Time
Since 1959, Preszler Law has investigated complex slip and fall cases with winning results. Some of the cases we handle involve “hard” injuries like bone fractures, which can take a full year for recovery and may lead to residual effects such as post-traumatic arthritis. Soft tissue and joint injuries can take up to two years for maximum healing to occur, with chronic pain lasting for years.
We File Lawsuits on Your Behalf
We negotiate settlements and file lawsuits on behalf of Kamloops residents and visitors who had the misfortune of slipping and falling due to someone else’s negligence. We exchange relevant documents with the insurance company and the defendant’s lawyer and conduct a thorough investigation above and beyond what the local police department may have done. In some cases, we may conduct interviews, take depositions, secure expert witness testimony, and prepare you to take the stand. Sometimes a favourable agreement can be reached through a neutral third-party mediator once the other side sees that the deck is stacked against them.
We Fight for Damages in Court
A slip and fall case may result in compensation to cover:
Our goal is to get the maximum amount of money to assure your full recovery. We’ll help you combat common defences, such as the claim that you didn’t fall at all, that the company played no role in your accident, that you weren’t hurt too badly, or that you’re actually to blame for what happened.
The legal process can be very empowering for injury victims. Not only will you have a chance to tell your story, but you’ll ensure the same accident doesn’t happen to others.
