My daughter slipped on cleaner that was on the floor in a grocery store in Hollywood. She went to the doctor who told her that she had a torn ACL. As a result, she had to take off two weeks from work and she might have to have surgery. An insurance representative from the grocery store contacted her and offered to send her a check for $1,000. Should she accept the check or hire a lawyer?

It can be difficult to know the full impact that an injury will have, following an accident.  Insurance companies understand this and will frequently offer settlements right away to minimize their liability.

Before your daughter accepts a settlement offer from the insurer, it would be a good idea for her to talk with a Los Angeles slip and fall attorney who will be able to estimate the value of her case.  Our law firm provides free consultations, so your daughter has nothing to lose by calling our office.
