What should I do if an insurance company approached me about my injuries in a slip and fall case?
The short answer is that we have to think big picture here, which is you hire an attorney if you haven’t already. That’s because the reason the insurance company is contacting you in order to provide you fast or quick money is because the insurance company believes there’s an issue on liability. They believe that the reason that you slipped on the berries at the grocery store was their fault. Then they’re trying to minimize the amount of recovery or dollars in your pocket. While $1,000 or even $5,000 may sound really good, right now, one month after the incident occurs, you don’t know always what your injuries will develop into.
Quite frankly, that kind of case, what if that case is worth $10,000 or $20,000. That’s why the insurance company tries to get to you first before you get an attorney involved because the insurance company is trying to cut your rights and interests. That’s the opposite when we get involved. We’re trying to maximize your rights and interests in the recovery and ultimately the dollars in your pocket.
