How Can a Lawyer Help Me with My Premises Liability Case?

If you are not a legal expert, you may need to get some help after an injury on another party’s property.

A lawyer can help you with your premises liability case in several ways, including by:

  • Investigating your accident
  • Collecting evidence to prove your case
  • Calculating your case’s value
  • Handling legal paperwork
  • Dealing with insurance negotiations
  • Going to court

Continue reading for more information regarding what a lawyer does to help with a premises liability case.

A Lawyer Can Help Investigate Your Accident

You were hurt in an accident on someone’s property. How did the accident occur, and who is liable for it? Your lawyer helps you examine all aspects of your accident to determine what happened and gather the evidence you need to prove it. 

For example, if you were hurt in an accident at a hardware store where an object fell on your head, your lawyer can help by interviewing witnesses and compiling their statements. Perhaps the store had surveillance equipment. Your lawyer can work to get a copy of the video footage that shows what happened.

Your lawyer’s job is to make your case as strong as possible, and they use evidence to do that. Types of evidence that we can use to prove a premises liability case includes (but is not limited to):

  • Photos and video footage
  • Statements from witnesses
  • Medical expert reports
  • Medical evidence
  • Documentation
  • Physical evidence
  • Police or accident reports

An Attorney Can Calculate the Value of Your Case

Your injuries have probably caused you some losses, such as:

  • Physical pain
  • Mental distress
  • Permanent injuries
  • Scarring
  • Disfigurement

Some of the above are non-financial losses you may have suffered due to your accident. These losses are compensable, but you will need to determine their value. When a value is assigned, you can demand an insurance company pay you for these losses.

You can also be compensated for your monetary losses, such as:

  • Lost wages
  • Medical bills
  • Future lost wages
  • Property damage
  • Physical therapy expenses
  • The cost of mental health treatment

Your attorney will help by adding up all of your losses and coming up with a fair settlement amount. They then make every effort to get you fair compensation from an insurance company or the court.

A Lawyer Can Help You Handle All Applicable Legal Paperwork

Whether filing an injury claim or lawsuit, you will have to deal with paperwork. This paperwork can be complicated and stressful to handle without legal knowledge. There are filing deadlines and other rules that you must adhere to, or you run the risk of a claim denial or inability to collect compensation entirely, per Nevada Statutes Chapter 41.

Having a lawyer helping with your case means you will not have to worry about legal paperwork, filing deadlines, or other issues related to paperwork. Your lawyer can take care of these tasks on your behalf.

You Can Depend on Your Attorney to Handle All Things Related to Insurance Negotiations

Dealing with insurance companies is part of the process of recovering compensation after an accident. Property owners have insurance policies designed to protect them financially if someone is injured on their property. 

For example, a homeowner has an insurance policy that helps them pay for damages of injury victims. A business owner has a business insurance policy that can protect them from liability when injuries occur on their premises, per the Nevada Division of Insurance

To obtain financial compensation for your injuries, you will most likely have to communicate with the property owner’s insurer. If you have a lawyer, they can handle these communications for you. They can file your paperwork with the insurer, handle negotiations, and defend your interests with zeal.

Going to Court is Easier with an Attorney by Your Side

Taking a case to court is rarely necessary, but you may have to go to court for an injury case. Your lawyer can litigate your case, handle all court hearings and filings, and fight for your right to compensation after an accident. 

In the rare event of a case going to trial, a lawyer can file your lawsuit, represent you during hearings, argue your case at trial, and work to get the court to award you fair compensation.
