We are here to help you seek compensation for your pain and suffering, economic losses, inconvenience, and disruptions to your future. The state of Massachusetts does not limit the amount you can receive in a personal injury lawsuit, which means we can pursue the recovery you deserve to its fullest extent.

What Not to Say to Insurance Adjusters

If your slip and fall was caused by the negligence of others, you can be sure of one thing: insurance carriers will try to limit their liability by blaming you for causing the accident or offering a settlement that does not fairly compensate you for your injuries, losses, and other expenses.

Expect insurance adjusters to contact you to offer a cash settlement. Depending on your case, more than one insurance company may contact you. They will ask you how the accident happened, to describe your injuries, to list treatments you are receiving, and to share your schedule to return to work.

We recommend that you never answer any questions before you have spoken to your slip and fall lawyer in Brockton, MA. Ideally, you would refer the insurance company to your personal injury lawyer for all communications related to the case. This will help protect you from saying or doing something that could hurt your case.

We also recommend that you:

  • Never allow an insurance company to pressure you to quickly accept their initial settlement offer
  • Never allow an insurance company to downplay your injuries, or persuade you not to hire an attorney
  • Never share information about your financial status or give permission to view your private medical records

Remember, the insurance company does not have your best interests at heart. They are trying to build a case that supports a minimal amount of compensation. Your lawyer can help fight against these tactics and negotiate for the settlement you deserve.

  • Recommending strategic options to pursue

Establishing Liability for Your Slip and Fall Accident

Private property owners and business establishments—even government entities—have a responsibility to maintain their property to reduce the risk of slip and fall accidents.

Specifically, business operators are expected to:

  • Maintain floors, aisles, walkways and carpeted areas such that they are not ragged or torn and that the lighting is adequate
  • Ensure obstacles are not left in aisles
  • Clearly mark construction hazards, puddles, or wet floors
  • Prevent aisle floors from becoming extremely slippery due to grease, oil, or wax

Our team will gather evidence from witnesses, police reports, medical records, photographs, and videos from the accident. It is important to establish that the property owner should have been aware of the potential risks presented by poor

Maintenance, yet did nothing. We will demonstrate that, had they paid attention to risk factors, your injuries could have been prevented.

Establishing the Extent of Your Injuries

As your legal representatives, a slip and fall lawyer in Brockton, MA will:

  • Review reports of EMTs who treated you at the scene and transported you to a hospital emergency room
  • Review hospital records of attending physicians, nurses, radiologists, surgeons, orthopedists, or neurologists who provided emergency care
  • Review medical records regarding the costs for ongoing treatment with private care providers for lingering pain and suffering, including costly drugs and ongoing physical therapy and repeated X-rays, CAT scans, MRIs, etc.
  • Assess work-related issues, such as your diminished capacity to fulfill job requirements and loss of income
  • Assess the affected lifestyle changes, such as lack of physical ability to perform simple housekeeping tasks like cooking a meal or dressing or bathing yourself.

Reviewing Your Choices on How to Proceed

Once you have engaged our firm to represent you, we will begin to build a case strategy that supports the following options:

  • You may choose to accept a cash settlement offered by the insurance carrier. Our team will negotiate on your behalf to reach an equitable settlement to account for your pain and suffering, inconvenience, and economic loss.
  • Should you reject the settlement offer, you can agree to voluntary court mediation. Our legal team will mediate on your behalf. If no agreement is reached, a date will be set for a trial.
