First of all, don’t do it alone. Call a slip-and-fall expert attorney to help you negotiate a fair settlement. Doing it alone will yield a much smaller settlement in most cases.
We’ll make sure you have good pictures of the defect causing you to slip and fall, and we’ll make sure you gave notice of the injury to the property owner and/or employer too. Negotiations after a trip and fall accident will require getting all the medical records and even a narrative report from a treating doctor, who can advise as to their opinions regarding diagnoses, restrictions, future care, etc.
