An interesting fact about slip/trip and fall lawsuits is a lot of lawyers won’t take them because they are complicated, difficult and require a lot more work that other type of injury cases.
It is important for people to realize that you do need a good lawyer on these – someone who is prepared to go the distance, to describe your situation to a jury and not rush to settlement for the quick pay-out. Many less experienced lawyers don’t know whether a settlement offer is fair or not.
Beyond that, the biggest mistake lawyers make in slip and fall cases is not knowing who the parties are. It is fundamental to sue the people who negligently caused the plaintiff’s injury and not bringing in the right parties can lose an otherwise winnable lawsuit.
