That’s when it’s time to call an experienced personal injury lawyer. That’s when it’s time to call Thompson Law.
A slip and fall accident can happen anywhere. It could happen at a store, restaurant, hotel, bar, shopping mall, parking lot or someone’s home. The owner of a property or business has a responsibility to take steps to try to prevent these types of accidents. When this responsibility is not met, people can get hurt.

Recovering financial compensation can be a difficult process. Property owners typically deny doing anything wrong and don’t accept responsibility. That leaves you in the position of having to prove negligence. The insurance company won’t be much help. They have lawyers to help them try to avoid paying you.
That’s why you need an experienced personal injury lawyer to fight for your rights. Attorney Thompson used to work for insurance companies as a claims adjuster. He knows how they operate and he knows all the tactics they use to try to avoid their responsibility. They may question your injuries, or argue they were pre-existing. They may even blame you for the accident.
Attorney Thompson starts by getting the facts. He’ll investigate your accident, whether it involved wet floors, debris, loose floorboards, damaged carpeting, uneven pavement, poor lighting or a lack of handrails. He reviews all relevant documentation and interviews witnesses. If needed, he consults experts who can explain how the accident happened.
Focused on results
This hard work allows him to build a strong case that insurance companies have to take seriously. Insurance companies typically realize it is better for them to avoid court and agree to talk about a settlement. Attorney Thompson is not interested in making a quick deal that helps them save money.
Any resolution of your case has to be one that meets your needs. This includes compensation for current and future medical expenses related to your injury. It includes lost wages. It may also include compensation for other damages, such as pain and suffering.
Another thing you can expect when you are represented by Thompson Law is personal attention. Attorney Thompson is proud of the one-on-one attention he is able to give clients. He will give you an honest assessment of your case the first time you meet. Then he will keep you informed about the case every step of the way.
If you were hurt in a slip and fall accident, it’s important to get legal advice as soon as possible. In general, you have one year from the date of the accident to take legal action. It’s also preferable to start working on your case before evidence is lost or destroyed and the memories of witnesses fade.
