Right now, it might seem like the easiest course is…to do nothing.
You are in a lot of pain and it may be all that you can do to keep up with your medical appointments and treatment. The thought of taking legal action may seem overwhelming and, quite frankly, not worth it. But nothing may be further from the truth if you have suffered a serious injury after falling at a hotel on Fleur Drive, a restaurant on Locust Street, or another commercial property in Des Moines.
What Would Happen If You Do Nothing
If you don’t do anything to pursue a legal and financial recovery for your slip and fall injuries, then you won’t get one. It is that simple. You will be stuck paying for your medical bills and your other bills. You will have to deal with your lost income, your physical pain, your emotional suffering, and your other damages on your own.
This Is Not Inevitable
It doesn’t have to be this way. You may be able to recover for your medical bills, lost income, out-of-pocket expenses, physical pain, emotional suffering, and other damages by pursuing a legal claim. And you do not have to be stressed out by the details of filing a claim. Instead, you can hire a lawyer to protect your rights and concentrate on your full and fair recovery while you work on your physical recovery. The choice should not be either your physical recovery or your financial recovery. Instead, the answer is to pursue both recoveries.
Have you been hurt in a slip and fall accident? Did you pursue a legal recovery? Were you glad that you did or did you regret that you did not pursue such a recovery? Please leave a comment and share your thoughts with others who may be just beginning the recovery process.
