When you file a Pennsylvania slip and fall claim, it’s important to act with integrity and disclose all pertinent information to your Philadelphia premises liability lawyer. Hiding your background or keeping significant details from your lawyer will only wind up in hurting your case and chances for compensation down the road.

As you’re working with your attorney, you’ll need to be open with any details about your: 
  • accident and injuries;
  • employment history;
  • credit history and tax records;
  • claims history;
  • medical history; and
  • history of substance or alcohol abuse. 
It’s also important not to exaggerate your injuries. For example, if you fell at one of the shops in Liberty Place, don’t falsely claim that you threw your back out if you really didn’t. Not only is exaggerating injuries is unethical, but it’s also illegal and will only reflect poorly on you. 

Rest assured that the prosecution will have a team of experts and investigators trying to “dig up dirt” on you. But when you’re open and truthful, your lawyer will be able to assess the facts objectively, build a sound case and avoid being surprised by curveballs.

Try finding a Philadelphia premises liability lawyer with whom you feel comfortable sharing your story. Your attorney will be able to guide you through the Pennsylvania slip and fall claims process and help you avoid costly mistakes that could hinder your case.
