If you are looking for an outstanding personal injury lawyer in the Phoenix area, the first step you should take is scheduling an initial consultation with one of our attorneys. During this meeting, your attorney will ask some questions about your accident, your injuries, and the damages inflicted on your property. Your Phoenix personal injury attorney will also need as many details as possible about your accident, including where and how it happened, and how many other people or parties were involved. The more information you have, the better, so it can be a good idea to spend some time writing down all the details you can recall, before attending your Lorona Mead consultation.
Everything you say to your lawyer during this meeting will be kept strictly confidential, and your personal injury attorney will only ever disclose those details which are pertinent to your claim, and which you have agreed to make public. You can also rest assured that your attorney will be completely non-judgmental at all times, so there is no need to be reluctant or embarrassed about providing full details of your Phoenix personal injury claim.
Remember, a personal injury claim in Phoenix, or elsewhere in Arizona, must be filed within a strictly-defined period of time, and some aspects of your case may carry additional time restraints, for example, when you are seeking compensation from a public body. As such, to ensure that your Lorona Mead personal injury attorney can secure a successful outcome on your behalf, you should contact us as soon as possible, to enable us to build the strongest possible lawsuit.
Phoenix slip and fall
As the name suggests, a slip and fall accident is one where you slipped and fell on someone else’s property. This could include slipping on a recently washed or waxed floor in a store, where there was a lack of warning signs, falling due to a poorly-maintained public walkway, and anything in between. While you may believe that slip and fall accidents are a relatively minor occurrence, they can result in severe and even catastrophic injuries. If you or a loved one, has been injured due to a slip and fall accident, you deserve to receive monetary damages in respect of your injuries, and the effect they have had on your life, for example, the wages you have lost while recovering.
If you are involved in a slip and fall accident in Phoenix, our esteemed personal injury attorney recommends following these steps to help ensure any claim you may need to file can progress as quickly and smoothly as possible:
Avoid giving a recorded statement – If you call your insurance company after your slip and fall accident to discuss your injuries, they may inform you that calls may be recorded. You should be aware that you are within your rights to refuse to be recorded, and that it may be in your best interests to do so. When you consult with a Phoenix personal injury attorney, they can advise of the various ways in which this recording could be used against you but, for now, decline on the grounds of wanting your lawyer to be present before you give a statement.
Seek medical attention immediately – Not all injuries are immediately obvious and, due to the shock of your slip and fall accident, you may not be aware that you have seriously hurt yourself straightaway. Regardless, you should always seek medical attention after an accident, as the records could be used to your advantage in any subsequent personal injury claim. In addition to this, any delay could mean your injuries start to heal and do not seem to be as serious as they really were.
Gather and save any evidence – Your Phoenix personal injury attorney will advise you to keep – unwashed – the clothing you were wearing at the time of your slip and fall accident, as your clothing may contain traces of any substance that contributed to your fall. You should also keep all receipts relating to the medical expenses you have incurred, as well as a journal of all medical appointments and treatments since the slip and fall accident.

Whether you were the driver of one of the cars involved, a passenger in a bus when it collided with other vehicles, or a pedestrian struck by an out-of-control vehicle, a Phoenix personal injury attorney from Lorona Mead could help you to get the justice you deserve.
