A tumble down a flight of stairs or slipping on a wet patch of ground can be devastating. A slip and fall injury may not seem that serious, but it can result in weeks of hospitalization or a permanent head injury if you are unlucky. When this happens, recovery isn’t your only concern. You will probably be wondering how you can pay for months, years, or even decades of medical bills. For most people, that is a financial hit they can’t afford.
However, a fall injury doesn’t have to result in financial ruin. With the help of an experienced Foley slip and fall lawyer, you can get the compensation you need to pay for all your expenses after suffering a serious injury.
If you suffered a serious injury in a fall accident, you need the assistance of the Foley slip and fall lawyers at Caldwell, Wenzel & Asthana. Contact our law firm today at (251) 444-7000 to schedule a free consultation with our slip and fall lawyers in Foley, AL.
Most fall injuries we handle involve negligence by some sort of business. The advantage of that situation is that every business has liability insurance. Unfortunately, the insurance company for that policy wants to pay as little money as possible, and the business wants as little publicity of its failure as possible. This means the insurance company is likely to make a quick settlement offer that doesn’t even begin to cover your expenses. But unless you are represented by experienced Foley slip and fall lawyers, it may seem reasonable.
Experienced attorneys, like those at CWA, understand the severity of the injuries you suffered and how much they will cost to fully recover from. We will never back down from a fight with an insurance company and will never accept an offer that doesn’t fairly compensate you for the harm you suffered. When it comes to dealing with a negligent business and a greedy insurance company, only aggressive negotiation will get you the money you deserve.

When people fall, they often hit their heads. Unfortunately, many people don’t realize the dangers of head injuries. What may seem like a light injury could be a traumatic brain injury that debilitates you for life. If you strike your head in a fall, don’t take it lightly. Instead, contact our law office right away. We will direct you to an experienced head injury doctor who can properly evaluate your injury and determine whether it is more serious than it seems. Getting evaluated as soon as possible is important so you don’t miss out on your chance to get fairly compensated.
Because we always want to get the most compensation possible, we want our clients to be informed. In our experience, an informed client can better help their case. This is why we go out of our way to answer all your questions about slip and fall injuries. The following are some of the most common questions our clients ask.
How much money is my case worth?
Every case is different. However, your case is probably worth more than you realize. The value of your case is based on:
Many clients don’t realize they can get compensation for more than medical bills. Therefore, they severely undervalue their claim.
Somebody told me I can’t get any money if I don’t sign a waiver. What should I do?
This is a common tactic businesses use when someone falls in their establishment. It isn’t true, and you shouldn’t sign anything. If you did sign something, contact our law firm right away. We can show that you were coerced into signing your rights away, but we can only do this if you let us know quickly.
How long do I have to file a lawsuit for a fall accident?
Alabama state law gives you two years from the date of the injury to file a lawsuit against the negligent party. Don’t delay in getting started. Two years can pass a lot more quickly than you realize, and there are very few options to sue if the statute of limitations has passed.
Will I have to pay CWA in advance?
No. We take all of our fall injury cases on contingency. That means you only pay us after we get money for you. And if we can’t get you any money, you will never get a bill. Additionally, your initial consultation is completely free.
Will my slip and fall case go to trial?
Our Foley slip and fall lawyers will attempt to negotiate a settlement before going to trial. A fair settlement ensures you get the money you need quickly. Typically, we go to trial only if the insurance company refuses to negotiate in good faith. Thankfully, when that happens, you are represented by attorneys who have decades of trial experience.
While these are some of the most common questions we receive, you probably have other questions based on the specifics of your case. We are happy to answer these questions during your free consultation.
If you or a loved one has suffered a serious fall injury that is the fault of another party, you deserve compensation for the harm you suffered. Our experienced attorneys will vigorously fight to get you full and fair compensation.
No one should have to face financial ruin from a slip and fall accident. If you need money to pay for medical bills or lost income, contact our slip and fall attorneys at Caldwell Wenzel & Asthana at (251) 444-7000 right away.
