Do I need a personal injury lawyer?
As the injured victim, you may be legally entitled to compensation to cover some of the costs you’ve incurred through no fault of your own. This includes things like medical bills, physical therapy, long-term care, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other losses. However, you’re unlikely to get the full, fair compensation you deserve without a lawyer to represent you. In fact, people who have an attorney typically get three times the amount (or more) than those who attempt to settle on their own.
If you have been injured on someone else’s property, you may be able to hold the owner responsible through a premise liability claim. These cases often arise from accidents caused by dangerous and defective conditions at the premises. You will need to establish the negligence of the property owner, which essentially means showing that the owner knew or reasonably should have known about the dangerous condition, and the owner failed to repair it or warn visitors about it.
Slip and Fall
Slip and fall injuries happen in a variety of ways and if proven to be the fault of the business or proprietor, you may be able to prove negligence. The following conditions can be causes of slip and fall injuries:
☛ Injuries caused by slippery floors or standing water, ice, snow or environmental conditions present at the time of injury.
☛ Injuries that may be caused by uneven walkways, broken stairs or poor sanitary conditions.
☛ Slip and fall injuries can include slipping and falling into water, causing a drowning or severe injury to those involved.
☛ Construction site injuries caused by owner negligence involving workers or passersby.
☛ Falling store products can also be considered under slip and fall injuries.
Premises Liability requires a special understanding of the law, an understanding that requires experience and dedication to this difficult area of practice. At Kettell & Associates, we specialize in slip and fall injuries.
Wrongful Death and Catastrophic Injuries
When someone dies through the negligent act of another, a wrongful death claim can result. A family bringing a wrongful death claim after a fatal accident or medical malpractice may be able to recover compensation for their pecuniary loss and in certain cases for the conscious pain and suffering of the decedent prior to death. They would need to establish that the death was caused by a defendant's careless or wrongful actions, the victim could have brought a personal injury case if they had not died, one or more of the victim’s relatives or beneficiaries suffered a loss due to the death, and damages were incurred that may be recovered by the estate.
With the experience you need for your personal injury case, Kettell & Associates is the clear choice for your personal injury representation. If you're not being compensated fairly, we won’t stop working for you until you are paid in full for your damages. Call now and get the representation you need to obtain a fair and just settlement.
