1. Slip and Fall Case Value

We told her a number of different factors need to be taken into account when calculating the value of a case. First, one needs to take into account the liability of the defendant; second, the nature and the extent of the injuries; third, the amount of the amount medical bills; and fourth, the amount of any type of lost wages, pain and suffering, or loss of a normal life.

2. Slip and Fall Case Timeline
We received a call from one of our clients in Naperville who had been involved in a slip and fall accident. She was asking us how long her claim was going to take to resolve. We informed her that it all depends on the complexity of the case. It depends upon the extent of the injuries. It depends upon the defendant. It depends upon the defendant’s insurance company.
It also depends on whether they want to litigate the matter and ultimately go through a trial. In total, a slip and fall case takes roughly nine months to two and a half years to resolve. If you have any further questions, please give us a call.
3. Slip and Fall Insurance Investigation
We received a call from a client in Naperville the other night who had slipped and fallen at one of the local stores in Naperville. She had received a call from the insurance company and was wondering whether or not she should return the call. We told that she should not speak to that insurance company without being represented by an attorney. The insurance company for the big box store is looking to defend the premises owner. They’re looking to save money. They do not have your best interests in mind. If you have any further questions, please give us a call.
