Have you ever scoffed in suspicion over someone filing a slip and fall lawsuit? If you said yes, you are part of a very large group. At one time, and perhaps even today as well, people in Pennsylvania and other states looked at lawsuits over slips and falls as something to joke about.
We actually understand this viewpoint better than you may think. After all, we were not always injury lawyers with the knowledge we now possess. We know how frivolous and silly some may seem, but many slip and fall victims have suffered serious injuries. For example, if an accident damages a victim's head, neck, spine or back, it could lead to a debilitating and costly condition that might go on indefinitely.
What would you do if you were to suffer injury in a slip and fall accident? Would you let the stigma associated with legal action prevent you from seeking the compensation you need to pay for medical treatment? We sincerely hope you would not, which is why we encourage victims to get a legal opinion at the very least.
In the end, it should be about your injury, your suffering and the collateral consequences your family may experience. If you let your opinion or the public's opinion prevent you from pursuing compensation for your injury, your family's hardships might go on indefinitely.
