Length of Your Slip and Fall Case
The length of your slip and fall case is a very complex thing because it depends on many factors. There are no two cases that are exactly the same. Some cases involve easy people to deal with, where it’s clear who’s at fault. Some cases you have to do an awful lot of investigation to figure out exactly who’s at fault. It depends what type of case you have.
Length of Your Slip and Fall Case | Determining Extent of Injury
Some cases, the injury is crystal clear in the very beginning; you’ll know what the injury is and you have a pretty good idea what the prognosis is. Other cases, injuries keep on growing. Maybe there’s an operation six months later; maybe there’s another operation six months after that. You have to wait. You have to wait and see the entire injury to decide how much the entire injury is worth. You can’t rush these things, especially with slip and falls. It can often lead to operations, and the operations can often lead to further operations. You need to see everything there is. You need the doctor to determine no more treatment is necessary. This is the future for this client. Then you can determine how much this client should get for the injury that the client has sustained.
Length of Your Slip and Fall Case | Litigation
As far as the other side, it depends on who the defendants are, who their insurance carriers are, and many other factors that go into the case. A lot of these cases, especially the slip and falls, have to be pursued. They have to go to court. There has to be depositions, EBTs, and discovery. What we like to do when we have a serious injury for a slip and fall case is we immediately put it into suit and pursue it so we can get to the very end of the suit and the payment for the client as quickly as possible. We can work as hard as we can to get what the client deserves, so the client gets every penny the client should get for the injury that the client sustained.
