Usually, any person injured in a premises liability case can file a lawsuit on their own behalf. However, if you are not familiar with the law or with the process of filing a lawsuit, it might be a good idea to consult an attorney for advice and representation.
There are many factors that are considered when determining the value of your claim. The amount of damages, the severity of injuries, the number of people involved in the incident, the location, and if there were any witnesses. If you have any doubts as to whether or not you should consult with an attorney, it is always best to consult with one before making any decisions.
