Choosing a Negligent Security Attorney

3 Tips You Should Know About a Negligent Security CaseWe got a call from someone recently who was looking to hire an attorney for a negligent security case in Kansas. They were asking how to go about making sure that they found the right attorney for them. There are a couple of things to consider when hiring an attorney to represent you on your negligent security case. One, you want to make sure that the attorney has a core focus in handling negligent security cases.

You may have experience with an attorney who has handled some other legal matter for you in the past and may think that it’s okay to work with that attorney, but if the attorney is a general practice attorney handling a wide variety of matters, you would be best served by getting an attorney who knows how to handle negligent security cases and whose core focus is handling those cases. You also want to make sure you find an attorney who is experienced in handling negligent security cases and has a track record of success in handling those cases. There are not a lot of attorneys in Kansas handling negligent security cases. You want to make sure that you find somebody who does know how to handle them and is handling them successfully.

Finally, you want to make sure that you find an attorney that is a trial attorney. Trial attorneys take cases to trial, to a jury trial. They know how to go to trial, how to take a case to a jury trial, how to present a case to a jury to get a good recovery. Not all attorneys know how to go to trial or can take a case to a jury trial.

You want to make sure that you find somebody who will take the case to the jury, who knows how to work up the case from the beginning to present the case to the jury and knows how to convince a jury to resolve your case in a way that provides you recovery for your damages.

Mistakes To Avoid After a Negligent Security

We’ve seen a lot of people who have negligent security cases make a lot of the same mistakes. There are common mistakes that people do make when they have a negligent security case in Kansas. One is that they fail to gather all of the evidence. They think that somebody else is going to take care of documenting the scene, taking photographs, gathering all the witnesses’ information. That just isn’t the case, so they don’t get the information either themselves or they don’t hire an attorney fast enough that can help investigate and gather that evidence for them.

Another common mistake that people make is talking to the property owner, the property owner’s lawyer, or their insurance carrier and giving them a statement early on before they have an attorney. That is a huge mistake. The insurance carrier, or the property owner, or attorney at that point is only gathering that information to help them defend against your case. It is not a good idea to talk to them. Make sure that you get an attorney hired who can handle that part of the investigation for you.

Lastly, maybe the biggest mistake we see is people hire the wrong attorney. People who don’t hire the right attorney have problems with the case. People will hire an attorney who doesn’t have the experience with negligent security cases or isn’t a trial attorney that can take their case to trial if necessary. It is important to get the right attorney hired to handle your claim.

Negligent Security Case Timeline

We are often asked how long it will take to resolve a negligent security case in Kansas. That is a very difficult question to answer, if not impossible. Essentially, you are going to need to focus on getting treatment for the injuries caused by the negligent security, healing from your injuries, and getting your life back. While you are doing that, we’re going to be working on your case. We are going to be investigating all the details, gathering all the evidence, and having the case ready so that when your doctor says that you’re done with treatment, we can then send the information and present the demand to the insurance carrier and see if we can settle your negligent security case.

If the insurance carrier is fair and reasonable and willing to pay for your injuries and your damages, then we may be able to reach a settlement agreement. We may be able to get your case settled quickly. If the insurance carrier is not willing to be fair and reasonable, not willing to pay your damages, and oftentimes doesn’t respond at all, then we have to file suit and pursue the claim all the way through the jury trial.

That will take more time, but regardless of how much time it takes, our number one goal is getting you the best recovery possible. Regardless of how much time it takes to do that, that’s what we will be pursuing on your behalf.
