Shopping is one of the most common activities that people perform on a daily basis, especially when it comes to buying groceries and essentials. Unfortunately, it isn't uncommon for business owners to pay close attention to their customers to ensure that nothing is being damaged or stolen from the store. Were you unfairly physically removed from a store after being given only a small amount of time to do so on your own? Did you end up getting physically injured during the process of being removed, and also have to deal with the psychological effect it has had on your life?
No one should have to experience what you are going through after innocently shopping at a store, which is why you need to contact a personal injury attorney as soon as you can.
Paying an Attorney on a Contingency Basis
Although it is common for attorneys to charge clients on a contingency basis when it comes to handling personal injury lawsuits, you won't know what to expect until after the first consultation. Before finding out if the attorney will take your case on a contingency basis or not, you will need to explain what happened to you in details on the day in questions, such as what led to you being physically removed from the store. Don't attempt trying to hold back information under the fear that it will make you look guilty of what the store attendant was accusing you of. An attorney has the skills to determine if you are being truthful or not, and he or she will likely take your case based on if your story is believed to be true.
Physical & Psychological Effects of Your Injury
You must provide very thorough details in regards to all injuries that you suffered from due to getting physically removed from the store in question. For instance, did you fall to the ground and end up with a brain injury that may never be able to be fully treated? Did you develop anxiety of shopping in brick and mortar stores after experiencing the traumatic incident? The reason why an attorney will need details of your physical and psychological injuries is so he or she will know how much money should be calculated into your personal injury lawsuit.
Discussing a Settlement with the Other Party
The most dreaded aspect of the lawsuit is the time that is sometimes involved before a settlement has been reached in court. An attorney might actually be able to help you avoid going to court to settle the case. He or she can attempt discussing a settlement with the other party via mediation before proceeding to go to court.
