How to Know if Your Slip and Fall Case is Worth Pursuing?
If you’ve had a slip and fall and the floor was wet or there was a raised piece of sidewalk or a broken piece of sidewalk, for example, or the lighting wasn’t adequate or there was a slippery substance on the ground, you absolutely owe it to yourself to pursue the claim. The only way you can find out whether or not it’s worth pursuing is by getting a medical examination to see what’s wrong with you. If you go to that medical exam and the doctor tells you you’re fine and you’re feeling fine, you should not pursue that claim.
If you are having chronic, ongoing pain and you go and see the doctor and the doctor recommends that you are going to need lots of therapy or surgery and a whole bunch of different diagnostic studies such as EMG tests and MRIs and X-rays, then you absolutely should pursue it, because we really don’t know how long it’s going to take you to heal and what exactly your damages are.
The short answer is if you have a slip and fall and you are injured, you should pursue it. If you’re not injured, don’t pursue it at all. Contact us for a free case evaluation. If you do have a case, we can help make sure you are compensated.
