Don’t be ashamed of seeking legal help after experiencing a slip and fall accident. It is easy to put the blame on yourself, attributing your fall to clumsiness or lack of paying attention. Health implications and recovery time after a fall may be longer ordeals than you think, leading to wage loss and the accumulation of medical expenses.

Most businesses or property owners are smart to have insurance to protect them from assuming liability in the event of an accident. At the end of the day though, an insurance company is a business whose goal is to pay out the smallest settlement claim possible to those who are injured.

The May Firm lawyers are experienced in dealing with these companies and are familiar with their operating procedure.
