Palm Desert Slip and Fall Information

Do You Have a Slip and Fall Injury?

A slip and fall accident can happen to anyone just about anywhere, a supermarket, a vacant lot, or even at someone's home. Depending upon the seriousness of the injury and your particular situation, you may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages.

Slip and Fall Legal Issues

To be compensated, the slip must be caused by someone failing to safely maintain the property, such as milk spilled on a supermarket floor, or a hole in the ground without a sign warning of the danger. Your legal status at the time of the slip and fall is also an issue, but a Palm Desert personal injury lawyer can tell you if you have a case.

Best Time to Seek Legal Help

No matter what your legal issue may be, it is always best to seek legal help early in the process. An attorney can help secure what is likely to be the best possible outcome for your situation and avoid both unnecessary complications or errors.

What to Expect from an Initial Consultation

  • Seek to determine whether the attorney can represent you. There is no one-size-fits-all legal solution and it may turn out your needs are better served by an attorney in a different specialization.
  • It's important to find a legal ally who is both competent in the law and someone you can trust to protect your interests.
  • Discuss how the practice's billing works and discuss possible additional charges or fees that may arise during or after the resolution of your case.

An attorney consultation should provide you with enough information so that you can make an informed decision on whether to proceed with legal help.
