I fell at Wal-Mart and hurt myself but don't know what caused me to fall. I have called several law firms and, although I didn't talk to a lawyer, they all turned me down. What should I do?
Call Egerton Law and you will talk to a lawyer. "Slip and fall" cases are hard to win as the burden is on the injured person to prove the negligence of the store. Proving negligence is more challenging when the injured person doesn't know what caused the fall. However, our firm regularly handles these cases and we will consult with you without charge to assess your case.
I slipped and fell in a store and hurt my back, but I already had back trouble before this fall. The store's insurance company has refused to pay because they say I had a pre-existing condition. Do I have a case?
Insurance companies routinely turn down claims when they find out the injured person has a pre-existing condition. But that should not be the end of the story. A law firm can help you win your claim. Call Egerton Law and our attorneys and staff will be glad to discuss the matter with you.
I think that I am entitled to Social Security Disability. I have been reading about it on the internet and am discouraged by all the red tape and complications involved. Is there any way that I can handle my claim in an easier fashion?
The easiest and most effective way to handle a Social Security Disability claim is to consult a law firm with several attorneys and a large support staff that regularly handles Social Security Disability claims. At Egerton Law, P.A. you will always speak with an attorney on your first call and will receive a free consultation. Call 1-800-800-4259.
Can I apply for Social Security Disability and keep working without penalty?
Yes and no. You can keep on working but you are limited on the amount of money that you can earn within a particular time period. Call Egerton Law, P.A. and our lawyers will be glad to offer more details regarding your case. 1-800-800-4259.
My son is starting to drive. What is the best advice I can give him?
Rear-end collisions are the most frequent and occur because someone is following too close. Teach him to remember this important rule: You should be far enough behind the car in front of you so that if that car suddenly turned into a brick wall, you could stop before you hit it.
I'm the parent of a newly licensed driver. How can I afford insurance?
Buy auto insurance that includes a million dollars or more of uninsured/underinsured coverage. Even careful, experienced drivers can be seriously injured by a careless driver with minimum ($30,000) liability coverage. It's inexpensive and pays you up to a million dollars (or more) to cover your losses if the at-fault driver has low coverage or none at all. Don't rely on the insurance salesperson! Call our office at 1-800-800-4259 for more information.
