Consult with your attorney for details on how a slip, trip, or fall accident case works in Iowa

You can start protecting your Iowa slip and fall accident recovery the moment that you are injured. While your case will not formally start until a complaint is filed in court, there are many important things that you need to know before you can file that complaint.

As soon as possible after your fall, it is important to find out:

Likewise, if it was your child who fell and got hurt, then it is important to know how to protect your child’s rights after a fall.

Once you have the information described above, then you can begin your lawsuit by filing a complaint. Once the complaint is filed, the defendant will have the right to file an answer. After that the formal discovery process will occur and may include things such as interrogatories, depositions, and requests for production of documents. Both you and the defendant may file motions with the court and, if the case is not decided on a motion, then the case will go to trial. Simultaneously, you may engage in settlement negotiations with the defendant.

This may seem overwhelming, but you don’t have to do it alone. You have the right to work with an experienced attorney who can handle all aspects of your case for you. Please start a live chat with us now to learn more.
