How We Build Your Slip and Fall Case

Most accidents are not truly accidents. If you think about it, most accidents can be traced back to carelessness. It might be an employee who doesn’t clean up a spill. It can mean a property owner did not take care of damaged flooring or a broken railing. We take the time to thoroughly investigate all of the possible causes and the legal avenues that may help you receive a fair result.

However, getting a great result for a slip and fall client is no accident. These are just some of the ways that we will build your slip and fall case:

  • Immediate preservation of evidence; investigation of the accident scene
  • Gathering witness information and compiling statements
  • Taking depositions of witnesses
  • Legal drafting, motion practice, speaking on your behalf in court
  • Communication with you so that you can contribute to the case
  • Working with experts and accountants to properly value your case
  • Discussions with you about your goals and a tailored plan for your best interests

Don’t Settle with Insurance Companies

The insurance company may want you to settle quickly. When they offer you a fast settlement, it might seem like a relief. However, don’t sign the papers until you speak with a Henderson slip and fall attorney.

Most victims underestimate the actual value of their case. They may not be aware of all of the categories of damages that can be a part of the claim. Sometimes, the amount that you can claim in pain and suffering is more than the amount of your financial losses. There are even categories of financial damages that may not be immediately obvious, like lost future income and help with household tasks. Let our attorneys provide you with a free consultation before you make any decisions about how to proceed.

Slip and Fall Accidents – Frequently Asked Questions

What Can You Win When You Bring a Slip and Fall Claim?

When you bring a slip and fall claim, here are the damages that you can win:

  • Emergency medical bills, urgent care
  • Compensation for all kinds of medical care including physical therapy and mental health care
  • Costs of travel to each medical appointment
  • Short-term lost income; long term career changes
  • Property damages
  • Mental health injuries
  • Pain and suffering
  • Compensation for things you’re no longer able to do because of your injuries

There is no set amount for each victim. Instead, the victim can ask for the damages that they sustained in their slip and fall accident. The purpose of compensation is to make the victim whole for their damages. Our Henderson lawyers will help to identify each loss and bring the most comprehensive claim for your injuries.

&nsbp;

What Are Common Causes of Slip and Falls?

There are several situations that could lead to a slip and fall accident. Damaged walkways, driveways or sidewalks, unmarked danger zones, slippery surfaces, uneven flooring, broken handrails, inadequate lighting, clutter or debris in a walkway, unmaintained stairways and uncleaned spills could all result in a slip and fall. If you’re injured because a property or business owner neglected to provide a safe environment, you may be able to collect compensation through a slip and fall claim.

&nsbp;

What Is The Process of Filing a Slip and Fall Case?

Filing a slip and fall case requires drafting certain legal documents. A summons is a notice to the other party that there is a claim against them. We can help you identify the appropriate party to name in your summons.

The complaint details the facts of the case and what kind of case you have. Then, it must go to the court with jurisdiction over the case. In order to make your filing complete, you have to serve the other party with notice of the slip and fall case. It may seem overwhelming, but our attorneys can handle every step on your behalf.

&nsbp;

How Long Does a Slip and Fall Claim Take?

A slip and fall case timeline varies based on many factors. When liability is clear and the other side can pay the claim, it can be resolved in a matter of weeks. When a case is complex, it might take 18 months or longer to resolve. However, when you work with our Henderson slip and fall attorneys, we can help you shorten the time to process your case.

Getting the best result for our clients means working diligently and quickly. Many times, we find that building a strong case is the best way to reach a fair settlement without the time and expense of taking each case to trial. But remember, each case is unique.

&nsbp;

Does Henderson Have Laws that Protect Slip and Fall Accident Victims?

Yes, Henderson has laws that protect slip and fall accident victims. The laws give the victim the right to claim compensation when the accident occurs because of negligence. Negligence is a lower legal standard than intentional actions. It just means not acting as carefully as a reasonable person would have in the same situation. Henderson laws protect accident victims by placing the burden on the person who causes the accident to compensate the victim for their losses.

&nsbp;

Is It Important to Call an Attorney Right Away After a Slip and Fall Accident?

The sooner you call an attorney after a slip and fall accident, the faster they can get to work to preserve evidence. The attorney can examine the accident location in order to take photos and look at damaged structures. In addition, the faster they can begin working on the case, the better chance they have to identify witnesses and get complete statements. When you hire our Henderson slip and fall attorneys, we get to work the same day.

Adam Kutner Reviews & Testimonials

“I was in an accident four days after I got my new car and my mother recommended that I go to Adam Kutner because we have been with Adam Kutner actually since I was in my first accident, when I was eight. I was really happy to see how quickly everything was moving. I was expecting maybe a couple – well I have heard that people had taken a couple years to get a settlement from whatever accident, but I actually got mine within a few months, so it was really nice and really quick.

After my meeting with Adam Kutners office they sent me to the doctor to get my back x-rayed and neck x-rayed because they knew – they noticed I was holding my neck in pain actually and, so they wanted to hurry up with the meeting which was really kind and they got me straight to the doctor and they got me the number and location for a chiropractor also which I was treated at for two months, I think.

Overall, I would say it was really nice and quick because this was the first accident that I have ever been in on my own that I had to handle on my own, so it was really nice that the attorneys at Adam Kutners office were helpful and really patient with helping me understand what was going to happen and how they were going to help me.

I would definitely recommend Adam Kutner to friends and family because you know they are really patient people, they are really friendly and helpful. I just feel like they get stuff done.”
