How do I choose the best attorney for my slip and fall claim?
The other day, our office got a call about someone who had been in a store, slipped and fell because of a slippery substance on the floor and they broke their hip. They asked me, “How do I choose the right attorney for my slip and fall case?” The first thing you need to establish is a level of comfort with the attorney. Attorney-client relationships are built on trust, and we should be able to do that in our first meeting, whether it be over the phone or in-person. Next, you need to hire an attorney with experience, not just in personal injury law but also slip and falls. Slip and falls are the hardest cases in Texas. Despite the Texas supreme court’s opinion to have these cases eliminated, we have still had success winning those cases, whether it be through a settlement or otherwise. You need to hire someone who is a trial attorney. Trial attorneys work cases differently. They work every case as if they’re going to trial. Also, insurance companies and businesses on the other side know who the trial attorneys are by reputation, and that means that they’re more willing to give a fair settlement offer.
