“Professional, caring and easy! Mr. Ponton represented me when I was involved in a car wreck with a drunk driver. He explained how the process works, kept me informed while the case was pending, and ultimately got me way more than I expected. I would definitely use him again.”

We Don’t Get Paid Unless We Win

Some attorneys charge by the hour, and you pay whether you win or lose. Some attorneys ask their clients to advance the case expenses, which can run into the tens of thousands of dollars. We don’t. We provide a free initial case evaluation, and all cases are handled on a contingency fee basis. This means that our firm does not recover a penny unless we win. It also means our interests our aligned-the more we recover for you, the bigger our fee is. We do not require any payment from you unless we obtain a verdict or settlement.

How Much Your Slip and Fall Case Is Worth

Variable Factors If you slip and fall on someone else’s property, it’s highly advisable that you estimate the value of your claim before taking any legal action. This would allow you to get an upper hand and know beforehand what settlement would be fair and what would be unacceptable. There is no fixed value for a slip and fall settlement. It varies depending on so many factors. One has to know every single detail about the case in order to have an idea of what they should settle for, which is a difficult feat to achieve. Moreover, factors that contribute to slip and falls vary extensively from one case to another. The severity of the injuries for the injured party or the property damages of the defendant where the accident occurred all have to be considered before settling on the amount. It’s really nearly impossible to take them all into…

How Long Slip and Fall Settlements Take

Slip and Fall Case Misconceptions One of the greatest misconceptions about slip and fall cases is that they are easy to win. Many people generally believe that because they slipped and fell on somebody else’s property, it automatically means that they should win the case. Truth is, slip and fall cases are actually very difficult to prove in a trial, and they end up taking months or years in court.

If one has to go into a trial for a slip and fall settlement, they have to greatly consider how much time, money and effort has to go into the case in order to realize a positive outcome. The Settlement Amount Even on winning the case, most of them settle for a lot less. It is generally believed…

Get The Help You Need

It’s important that you speak with a lawyer as soon as possible. The sooner we are involved, the better we can prepare your case. As time passes, evidence is lost and witnesses forget what happened. Emails and videos are purged. For example, large big box retailers routinely destroy surveillance videos after thirty days, which might have caught your fall at the grocery store on camera. Georgia law provides for sanctions in the event that a company destroys video evidence, but only after it receives “notice of litigation.” Call the Atlanta Personal Injury attorney today at 404-418-8507, or contact us online to schedule an appointment.
