What Questions Should I ask a Slip and Fall Head Injury Attorney?

The Law Office of David Dwork

When you suffer a head injury in a slip and fall, you want to make sure that you ask the right questions when you meet with your attorney. Any good slip and fall head injury lawyer will keep you informed about the status of your case. The slip and fall personal injury process varies greatly depending on the injuries you sustained and where your injury occurred, but here are some basic questions to ask your attorney that will help you to understand the basics of your case (and also help you choose a knowledgeable and experienced attorney.)

How Will We Investigate My Claim?

The claim investigation process is a crucial part of a slip and fall case. Your attorney will need to gather evidence about your accident, including photos, eyewitness statements, and reports. Another important part of your claim will be evidence of your injury, which is proven by presenting a history of your medical care or your injury, along with doctor’s reports and examination summaries. Your attorney should have a plan for how to investigate your case to show that the owners of the property knew (or should have known) about the dangerous condition that caused your accident.

How is a Head Injury Slip and Fall Claim Different?

Attorneys who don’t usually represent victims with head injuries may not know the challenges that these types of claims pose. A head injury is very different from a broken bone for many reasons. Firstly, a head injury can be difficult to diagnose. An attorney familiar with head injury law will know what medical evidence you will need in order to prevail in your claim. In addition, a head injury case is different from a broken bone because the effects of a head injury are often more devastating and more permanent. You have one opportunity to file your claim, and you want to make sure your attorney understands the impact that your injury has on your day-to-day life.

How Will My Medical Bills get Paid?

The answer to this question depends greatly on the type of defendant in your claim, the type of insurance they carried, and the type of health insurance you have (if any.) While this issue can be extremely complicated at times, it is very important to ask your attorney to explain the process for you. If you have a severe head injury, you might also be concerned about future medical expenses, which can also be a complicated issue that only an experienced head injury lawyer can handle.

What is the Value Range for My Case?

The value of your case will vary greatly depending on the severity of your injury and how permanent it is. At the outset of your case, your attorney may not have enough medical information to estimate the value of your claim, because you are still undergoing treatment and diagnostic tests. However, once your attorney begins to negotiate with the insurance company for a settlement, you should be able to have a discussion about the value of your case. Experienced head injury attorneys know to not undervalue your case.
