What Qualities Set Our Slip and Fall Attorneys Apart? 

If you were hurt after slipping, tripping, or falling on someone else’s property, you may be planning to take legal action against the liable parties. While you could embark on this journey on your own, filing a claim is often a complex undertaking, so it’s easy to make mistakes that might affect the outcome of your case.  

Hiring a skilled attorney to oversee the logistics of your case, may not only help you avoid serious errors but could also alleviate stress during the challenging days ahead. At HPIL, our legal team has decades of collective experience representing slip and fall victims in the state, arming us with the knowledge and resources to prevail under even the most difficult circumstances. 

Let’s take a look at some of the qualities that set our legal team apart from others in the area: 

  • Experience Handling Slip and Fall Claims: Just because an attorney has had success overseeing dog bite claims or car accident cases in the past, doesn’t mean that he or she has the necessary skills to prevail in a premises liability claim. Such cases often demand a drastically different approach, with success often depending on having a nuanced understanding of particular case laws, statutes, and proceedings. At HPIL, our slip and fall lawyers have a track record of success in this area of the law, so you can rest assured that we possess the knowledge and resources to help you achieve a favorable result.  
  • Compassionate: Whether it’s discussing the impact your condition has had on your everyday life or sharing details about the emotional trauma you’ve experienced; you will need to be incredibly vulnerable with your lawyer at certain points during proceedings. As such, you should look for someone who makes you feel at ease. At HPIL, our attorneys understand the devastating effect a slip, trip, or fall can have on someone’s life and livelihood, so we will always strive to provide support, guidance, and assurance throughout this stressful period of your life. 
  • Availability: Most attorneys handle multiple cases at any given time, but this doesn’t mean yours should be an afterthought. At HPIL, we give every case the attention it deserves, investigating the accident thoroughly and providing personalized representation from the first day until the final verdict.  

What Evidence Could Help Strengthen My Claim? 

Building a strong slip and fall case will almost always require one important ingredient: Strong evidence. As such, taking time to gather evidence immediately after the accident could be crucial to the success of your claim. 

At HPIL, our legal team can help investigate the accident, gathering the necessary proof to demonstrate liability, causation, and damages. Here are a few types of evidence that may play a role in your slip and fall case: 

  • Pictures of the Scene: Your attorney may be able to use photographs of the hazard that caused your injuries to not only show how you were hurt, but also demonstrate the property owner’s negligence. As such, if you are physically able to do so, you should use your smartphone to snap pictures of the scene, making sure to photograph the hazard that caused your injuries from multiple different distances and angles.
  • Eyewitness Testimony: Whether it was a staff member or another visitor, anyone who saw you slip, trip, or fall, may be able to corroborate your version of events. As such, you should write down their names and contact numbers to share with your premises liability lawyer. Your attorney may want to contact them to determine whether their statements will help strengthen your case.
  • Surveillance Camera Footage: Most business establishments are equipped with surveillance camera systems that are always recording. As such, it’s possible one of these devices may have captured footage of the moment you were injured. You will, however, need to act quickly to obtain these recordings before they are erased, as such videos are routinely deleted every few months or weeks.
