Premises Liability / Slip and Fall
Premises liability cases arise from injuries occurring in residential and commercial buildings, shopping centers and parking facilities, hotels and casinos, amusement parks, airports, healthcare facilities, nightclubs and bars, as well as universities and public schools. The general rule of law is that the owner or operator of the premises has a duty to keep the premises in reasonably safe condition or at least warn customers of a dangerous condition which the owner or operator caused, knows about, or should know about.
- How much money can I expect to get when my case is over?
First, you should run away from any lawyer who tries to answer this question before he or she has built your case into the best it can be. No lawyer can, even after meeting with you for that free, initial consulation, tell how much your case is worth. Yes, there are factors that drive most every case; how much are your medical bills or lost earnings, how bad are your injuries, did you require pyschological treatment and many others. But, there is a lot more to determining the value of any legal claim.
There are two key factors many people overlook. Nice plaintiffs, that is the people suing, can do better than others. In fact, a nice plaintiff, someone a jury will like, can turn a bad case into a good one. This is true in reverse. A likeable defendant will result in a lower verdict. As a well regarded New Hampshire Judge recently said, we can't determine the value until we "eyeball" the parties.
If you want a lawyer who will promise you a fortune to get your case, this firm isn't for you. If you want lawyers with the experience and skill necessary to accurately "eyeball" the parties, including being honest about your jury appeal, contact us below.
