The best thing to do right after a slip or fall is to contact The May Firm. Our lawyers will handle insurance negotiations for you to help ensure that everything goes smoothly.
Most businesses or property owners are smart enough to carry liability insurance. This can help protect them and cover the cost of injuries they cause due to their reckless or negligent behavior. Unfortunately, insurance companies are businesses whose goal is to pay out the smallest settlement claim possible to those who are injured. Although they represent the property owner, they are first responsible to their shareholders.
The May Firm’s personal injury lawyers are experienced in dealing with these companies and are familiar with the games they play to minimize payout on claims. Representation from our firm ensures these insurance companies are held accountable and greatly increases your chances of getting the appropriate settlement amount to meet your needs.
“We built our firm on the principle that victims deserve an advocate as experienced as the people on the other side of the table.”
