How Can a Slip and Fall Lawyer Maximize Your Compensation?

3 min read

Not all personal injury lawyers are equally qualified to handle complex slip-and-fall cases. A lawyer’s inexperience can cost an accident victim both time and money. 

If the insurance company knows you have an inexperienced lawyer, it will offer a low settlement amount. 

Experienced Philadelphia Slip and Fall Lawyer possess the knowledge and training to gather and organise evidence, calculate claim value, negotiate with insurance companies to maximize settlements, and go to trial if necessary.

Slip-and-Fall Lawyers Know How To  Build A Strong Case

Slip-and-fall accident lawyers have the knowledge and experience essential to navigate complex premises liability laws.  A skilled attorney collects vital evidence that includes police and accident reports, medical records, witness statements, surveillance footage, expert testimonies, and accident scene photographs, videos, or diagrams to support your claim’s validity. 

At The Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, our personal injury lawyers know how to link your injuries to the negligent actions of the at-fault party (Defendant). Our lawyers will demonstrate that the defendant owed you a duty of care, and the defendant’s negligence breached the duty of care, causing an accident, and resulting in injuries. 

Slip-and-Fall Attorneys Know How To Determine Your Claim’s Value Accurately

Slip-and-fall accident victims do not know how to determine the actual value of their cases and agree to the low amounts offered by insurers. 

An experienced attorney knows your claim’s worth and can negotiate to get you the settlement you deserve. 

Most lawyers and insurance adjusters may only consider the costs of hospitalizations, surgeries, prescription medications, medical equipment, rehabilitative care, and at-home care to calculate a claim’s worth. 

At The Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C.  Our knowledgeable lawyers consider all the above expenses, estimate future costs, and evaluate your injury’s severity, long-term effects, and interference with your daily life to determine your claim’s value.

Besides medical treatment and rehabilitation, our lawyers pursue additional compensation for expenses on therapy and lifestyle changes and seek damages for emotional distress, pain, and suffering. 

Our lawyers ensure insurers include these in the settlement. 

Slip-and-Fall Lawyers Negotiate For Higher Settlements

Seasoned lawyers utilize their training, experience, and specialized skills to negotiate with insurance companies. These lawyers often have to convince, pressure, or urge insurers to respect victims’ rights and offer fair and just settlements

At The Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, our lawyers are adept at reviewing insurance policies thoroughly and checking policy limits and coverage types. 

After determining how much compensation you need, we will send the insurance company a demand letter. Insurance companies tend to go back and forth often when negotiating a settlement. 

The claim could go for mediation. During mediation, after the parties present evidence and negotiate in person, the insurance company may put in its final best settlement offer. We may accept the offer on your behalf or negotiate further. 

The insurance company may refuse to negotiate further. When that happens, we know it is time to file a personal injury lawsuit.
