Whether you’ve been somewhere once or a dozen times, it’s fair to expect businesses to keep their properties safe for visitors and customers. Even the sidewalks that you use every day should be maintained to prevent accidents. However, this isn’t the case and many people find themselves injured and hospitalized from a trip and fall injury that could have been prevented by the property’s owner or operator.
If you’ve recently found yourself the victim of a trip and fall accident, you may be facing mounting bills for hospitalization, doctors’ visits, physical therapy, prescriptions, and maybe even surgeries. You might also be suffering from lost income due to missing work to care for your injuries. It’s unacceptable that you should have to shoulder the burden alone and the personal injury attorneys at Pursiano Barry Bruce Demetriades Simon LLP want to fight for your fair compensation. Contact us today to schedule your free case consultation.
No matter the circumstances, being in an accident and dealing with the subsequent issues can be overwhelming. Not only are you dealing with injuries, which can be severe, but you might be wondering about your rights and who is responsible for your accident. And, if you’re going to file a lawsuit, there’s a lot more that can be added to your plate, including filling out paperwork, submitting it on time, and acquiring evidence that adequately supports your claim of negligence.Hiring an experienced personal injury attorney can help take care of the legal side of things so you can focus on getting better and returning back to a normal life. Also, because a trip and fall attorney is more familiar with the law and what to look for, they can efficiently conduct an investigation and assess negligence and potential compensation. When it comes to trip and fall cases, a litigation lawyer can be an invaluable ally.
At Pursiano Barry Bruce Demetriades Simon LLP, we provide a free, no-commitment consultation so that you can meet with our lawyers and see if we’re a good fit for you. Once you’ve decided to work with us, our Nevada personal injury attorneys will immediately start conducting a thorough investigation on your behalf. This may include surveying the site where the accident happened, interviewing the police and first responders that were on scene, and even consulting with professionals in other fields, such as engineers, to determine the specific hazard that caused you to fall.
No matter who is responsible for your injuries, we won’t back down from ensuring that they are held responsible and you receive fair compensation. Property owners and operators that may be held responsible include:
We’ll also be your advocates when considering a settlement. Oftentimes, business owners’ insurance companies will try a low lump-sum settlement, especially when a claimant isn’t represented by a law firm. While it may be tempting, this sum can often be much lower than what would be considered fair compensation for the pain and suffering the claimant has experienced. We will work to secure a fair settlement that accurately addresses your grievances without being tangled in years and years of litigation.
Once a civil attorney has reviewed your case, we can assess the possible compensation for your injuries and related costs, which can include:
It’s important to immediately seek medical attention so all injuries can be documented.
We will then draft paperwork on your behalf and submit it to the court to begin the legal proceedings. While we wait for the other side to respond, we will begin to build upon our evidence to support your claim. In addition to consulting with field experts, this can include depositions, interrogatories, and subpoenas. We will also file and respond to any court motions.
Most cases don’t have to go to trial and are resolved through settlement. However, we won’t accept anything less than fair and are prepared to fight for you. When the time comes, we will give you all of the information and our professional guidance to determine whether a settlement is right for your case.
