If you are considering hiring an attorney after you suffered injuries from a slip and fall accident in the Greater New York City area, it is important to choose a personal injury lawyer that understands your case. Use the following tips when you are researching a prospective attorney for your personal injury case.
Choosing a Slip and Fall Lawyer Who Meets Your Needs
Choosing a slip and fall attorney who you feel comfortable with is a necessity. You want an attorney who listens to your concerns about your case and answers your questions regarding it. Most personal injury attorneys offer free case reviews during which they can address any concerns you might have.
You also want an attorney who can meet your legal needs. If your case is complex, make sure you have an attorney who has represented clients with similar slip and fall cases in the past.
For example, if your slip and fall injuries occurred on property owned by a government agency, there are special rules to follow when pursuing compensation. Your attorney must know how to navigate this legal process to ensure you meet all applicable deadlines.

Your Attorney Should Focus on Personal Injury Cases
If your injuries occurred due to a trip and fall accident, you will want to work with an attorney who regularly takes on premises liability cases in New York.
Choosing to work with an attorney who focuses on specific cases instead of someone who takes on a wide variety of cases strengthens the likelihood that the attorney working for you knows the intricate details of how best to investigate, document, argue, and litigate your case. Attorneys who have experience handling personal injury cases understand how to build the strongest possible and pursue compensation on your behalf, even under complex circumstances.
Look at the Reviews for Injury Lawyers
Choose an attorney who is notable in the field of personal injury. Special awards, rankings, and reviews contribute to an attorney’s reputation. When you are researching attorneys, the following attributes are what to look for in a slip and fall attorney in NY:
- Highly ranked in The National Trial Lawyers ratings, such as the New York Top 100
- High ranking on Avvo
- Membership within the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum®
If you are considering working with an attorney, we encourage you to read reviews about them once you are interested. Choose an attorney with excellent reviews, at online resources such as Avvo or Google Reviews where clients can rate and review attorneys. While looking at these reviews, you want to consider an attorney that has recovered a considerable amount of compensation for their former clients in other slip, trip, or fall accidents.
A Slip and Fall Lawyer Can Pursue a Case on Your Behalf
The culture of the law firm matters when pursuing compensation. Some law firms encourage attorneys to navigate the steps in the claims process as quickly as possible. Some attorneys want to reach an out-of-court settlement even if it means settling for an amount that does not cover a client’s damages and losses. A lawyer that wants to quickly settle your case will rarely if ever, take your case to trial.
