Common Factors in a Slip and Fall Case

The Harding Law Firm - Tuesday, November 15, 2016

Any business that is open to the public has a legal obligation to keep those on their premises reasonably safe. Their obligation is to maintain an area free of safety hazards, in order to keep their potential customers or clients out of harm’s way. If you have been injured in an accident – such as a slip and fall – on a store’s premise, it is possible that you have a valid legal claim against that business.

Common factors that come into play in slip and fall accidents within stores are:

  • Snow or ice accumulations in an entry way
  • A bunched floor mat that poses a tripping hazard
  • Unorderly displays
  • Poor lighting
  • An ignored spill without signage

If you believe you may have a valid legal claim against a store in which you endured a personal injury, contact the personal injury lawyers at Harding Law for your free consultation.

Three Things to Look for in a Personal Injury Attorney

The Harding Law Firm - Tuesday, November 01, 2016

Picking out the right attorney for you can be a stressful ordeal. You want to be sure you select an attorney that will understand your case, address your concerns, and get the results that you are looking for. When selecting a personal injury attorney, it is helpful to know what to look for in your attorney.

  1. Reputation – An attorney’s reputation will be the first thing you look into. The ideal attorney will be likable enough that other law professionals respect them, and have a proven record of experience that gets positive results. Ideally, your chosen attorney will handle personal injury claims exclusively.
  2. Affordability – A good lawyer does not necessarily mean an expensive lawyer. Many personal injury attorneys will handle claims on a no-win, no-fee basis. Look for a lawyer who is willing to work with you without making you go bankrupt.
  3. Compassion – Along with legal representation, those going through a personal injury case will be in need of support. Look for an attorney who will give you personal attention, be available to answer your questions, and invest their time thoroughly in your case. Your personal injury attorney is there to help you, so you will want someone that you feel comfortable talking to about your case and going to for help.
