Watching comedians do pratfalls and orchestrate slips and falls is quite funny. The best physical comedians can take something that’s otherwise tragic and turn it into the funniest thing we’ve ever seen. And once they add the exaggerated facial expressions, I’m lost in laughter.
But in real life, slip and fall accidents are anything but funny. I’ve fallen around my home and yard, and thankfully, did not sustain any lasting injuries. There was still pain, however, and I’m sure you can relate to that, probably having fallen a few times, yourself.
Some people are not so lucky. They slip and fall and the resulting injuries are so serious they end up with life-long pain and medical treatments. Not only do they live with pain but they also must live with worry about how they will pay their bills and take care of their families if they cannot work after their accident.
If you ever find that you have a slip and fall accident where someone else or another entity is responsible, you may find yourself asking the question: Do I need a lawyer for a slip and fall injury?
The answer is ultimately up to you. But I want to let you know that if you have a trustworthy lawyer, the legal process is much more easily navigated. You will be unable to concentrate on your recovery, which is the most important task, after a slip and fall accident if you also have to handle your case on your own.
Also, there are certain nuances to legal proceedings that an experienced injury attorney understands to help avoid pitfalls that victims often face when working alone. And as much as I hate to admit it, opposing counsel and insurance companies are not always very friendly with victims who filed a lawsuit or go against them in a court room. A slip and fall victim without legal representation may be an easy target for unscrupulous tactics.
Bottom line: An attorney who handles these types of injury cases will know exactly what to ask for and how to get you want you need in a slip and fall accident.
