How A Slip and Fall Attorney Handles Insurance Claims, Investigations, and Settlement Negotiations


A slip and fall attorney reviewing insurance claims and settlement documents.

When you slip, fall, and suffer injuries as a result, you may qualify for slip and fall accident compensation. A slip and fall accident lawyer can help you recover this compensation through the insurance policy of the party responsible for keeping the property safely maintained.

Maximizing slip and fall accident compensation doesn’t happen by chance. It takes a skilled lawyer to make the most of the process. A slip and fall attorney leverages their knowledge of insurance policies and personal injury law to investigate the accident, build a case, and negotiate the settlement you deserve based on your injuries.

Taking a closer look at the process of recovering slip and fall compensation helps you understand what to expect when you contact a lawyer after suffering a slip and fall injury.

Recovering Compensation After a Slip and Fall Accident

There are three main stages of recovering slip and fall accident compensation. Before you can get started, you need to collect information, research slip and fall lawyers, and attend a free consultation. Once you choose a lawyer to take your case, they’ll begin investigating the accident.

After the attorney has collected evidence, they’ll identify a target compensation value and submit an insurance claim. Then they’ll engage in negotiations with the insurance company. Finally, you’ll receive the compensation your lawyer has won for you.

Once in a while, an insurance company refuses to make a fair settlement offer. When this happens, your slip and fall accident attorney can take the case to court for a verdict. However, the vast majority of slip and fall claims are resolved through settlement, which is usually faster and less costly than going to court.

Investigating a Slip and Fall Accident

A slip and fall accident attorney builds a case by investigating the accident. The exact steps a lawyer takes during the investigation usually depend on the specifics of how, where, and why the accident occurred.

Items a lawyer usually collects as part of an investigation include:

  • Accident reports
  • Eyewitness testimony
  • Security camera footage
  • Medical reports
  • Photos of the accident scene
  • Medical bills and receipts

A lawyer uses this evidence to build a case. First, they need to prove that the property owner showed negligence by keeping the property in an unsafe state. To create a compensation goal, the lawyer must also show how the accident impacted you financially and emotionally.

Navigating the Insurance Claims Process

Once a lawyer has the evidence to demonstrate liability for your accident, they’ll submit a claim to the responsible insurance company on your behalf. Slip and fall lawyers have a deep understanding of insurance law. They know how to interpret the terms of a policy to support your claim.

Allowing a lawyer to submit the insurance claim on your behalf ensures that it’s done correctly with the necessary evidence. Lawyers are also well-versed in insurance tactics. They handle communication on behalf of clients to ensure clients are protected from these tactics.

It’s nearly guaranteed that you would recover far less money if you tried to seek compensation without legal representation.

Negotiating a Slip and Fall Settlement

An insurance company won’t just hand over the compensation you’re seeking. Insurance companies are for-profit businesses that are financially motivated to keep their payouts small.

Getting the most out of a slip and fall accident claim requires negotiation skills and knowledge of insurance policy terms and personal injury law. Your lawyer may negotiate with the insurance company until they come to a settlement offer that works for both sides.

Ask How a Slip and Fall Attorney Can Help

If you’ve been injured in a slip and fall accident, a slip and fall lawyer may be able to help you recover the compensation you deserve.

Most slip and fall accident attorneys take payment as a contingency fee. This means that you probably won’t owe any money upfront, and you only have to pay for your slip and fall lawyer’s representation if they win your case.

Contingency arrangements lend peace of mind and allow injured individuals to recover compensation even if they can’t afford to pay legal fees.

You have nothing to lose by contacting a slip and fall accident attorney, and you might be surprised to discover how much you stand to gain.

You don’t have to pay for someone else’s negligence. Contact Schrier Law Group today to learn how our experienced slip and fall attorneys can help you recover compensation after a slip and fall accident in Florida.

I must say that Mr. Schrier was there when we needed immediate advice after my wife got rear-ended by an unlicensed speeding lunatic. We called a handful of attorneys in our area, but after waiting 2- 5 days they would drop her case. We found Mr Schrier online and he explained the pros/cons and he took the case. We waited patiently, and in time he was able to tracked down the actual owners of the car and get their auto insurance info!

I was involved in an auto accident in January 2016. We decided to contact Paul K. Schrier, PLLC for legal advice. He never got annoyed with me calling to ask questions, which was quite often. We have finally reached the final stages of this case, which they handled very well, and have come to a settlement. I highly recommend the Florida personal injury attorneys at The Law Offices of Paul K. Schrier, PLLC, especially Paul K. Schrier to any one who needs a personal injury attorney. Thank you very much Paul for everything you have done do me.

The Schrier LG is an excellent firm! They accepted my case, provided me with all the procedural information, maintained a high level of professionalism while showing kindness and care. The doctor's office that they suggested is another group of kind and considerate individuals, dedicated to my full recovery. I would recommend the Schrier Group to friends, just as they were recommended to me. I am happy with my settlement and very pleased with the attention and diligence of the group as a whole. Thank you again!

Mr. Paul Schrier is by far the best attorney for the job! He is very responsive, knowledgeable, and very efficient. Despite my very busy schedule, he kept me informed throughout the process. I am very please with the outcome of my case. The customer service I received from the entire team has been amazing! Thank you all so much!

Ms. Jean


Not only did I get a phenomenal attorney to represent me in my case, but I also got a step by step education on how the legal process actually worked. I was encouraged to ask questions and be an informed client. I was never treated like a case. I truly felt like the advice and recommendations he gave to me would have been the same he would have pursued if he were the client. That was important to me. I needed to work with an attorney I could trust with my best interest in mind...and that is what I got with Paul Schrier.

Juan Rodriquez
