Taking the First Offer for a Premise Liability Case

Taking the first offer for a premises liability case is more often than not a huge mistake. Our South Carolina injury attorney explains why in this video.

Question:

Should I take the first settlement offer for my premises liability injury?

Answer:

Recently, someone called me from South Carolina after they had had a horrible fall when they’d gone to a store to purchase something. The store didn’t let them know that there was a hole in the floor. They didn’t have a warning or anything. That person called me and said, “Somebody is trying to call me from the store to take a recorded statement, and they won’t leave me alone. What should I do?”

I immediately Taking the First Offer for a Premise Liability Casetold them the last thing they should do is talk to that person and give them a recorded statement. I told them this because the person making the phone calls and wanting to take a recorded statement has an agenda. Their job is to do two things; first, they want to find out if there’s a way to blame the fall on you so that they don’t have to pay anything. Second, if they can’t find a way to do that, they’re going to try to minimize your injuries from the beginning.

One way they might try to do that is start asking you a bunch of questions about whether you’ve ever filed a claim before and whether you have any preexisting conditions. They’re going to not care that you’re still taking pain medication and you’re still woozy from the pain medication. The last thing you should do is speak with them.
