SLIP AND FALL ACCIDENT: Why Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?

Contributed by Mary Lafazanis – With the cold weather and snow now upon us, the threat of slip and fall accidents is a common winter-time conversation topic. Many of these accidents can result in serious injuries. Any injury that causes you to miss work, be unable to live as you normally would, or causes you to experience extreme pain can be considered a serious injury.

 
Potential “at fault” persons are the owner and tenant of the property where the fall occurred, and the municipality if the fall occurred on public property such as sidewalks and municipal parking lots. Did you know that you have only 10 days from the date of the accident to deliver a written notice to the Clerk of the municipality otherwise the right to claim compensation may be lost? Also, it is important to act fast when hiring legal counsel because you only have 2 years to file a claim in court.
Without the aid of a Lawyer, many people injured in slip and fall accidents would not receive the compensation they deserve for their injuries. Tony Lafazanis is located in your community and has over 35 years of experience as a Personal Injury Lawyer.
Some help Tony can provide:

 

  • Investigating the circumstances surrounding the accident
  • Documenting proof of negligence
  • Negotiating with the insurance companies
  • Representing clients in court

    Hiring Tony Lafazanis is risk free. There is no legal bill to pay if there is no settlement. www.TLLawCanHelp.com
