It’s impossible to say whether or not you need an attorney to represent you in your slip and fall accident case without learning more facts. Not everyone who falls on someone else’s property needs to hire an attorney. If there were no injuries involved, you probably do not need an attorney. If you suffered only very minor injuries that require no medical treatment, you probably do not need an attorney. Finally, if you suffered very minor injuries that required only minimal medical treatment, and the property owner reimbursed you for that, you most likely do not need an attorney.
However, there are much more serious slip and fall accidents, for which the victims should speak with an attorney. In some cases, slips on wet or icy surfaces can cause very serious medical problems, or even death. The very old and very young are especially prone to serious injuries as a result of a fall. Typically, people who are involved in a slip and fall accident suffer significant medical bills, disability, long lasting pain, and more.
If you have fallen on another individual’s property or on business property, you should consider speaking with an attorney. You do not have a lot of time under the law to wait after you have been injured before you need to secure your right to recover. In order to be successful in your case, it’s better if you get the case going sooner rather than later.
