A: I would not characterize your case or potential case as a slam dunk case even if you have surgery. Trip and fall cases and slip and fall cases can be quite challenging. These are among the most heavily contested types of cases that are handled by personal injury attorneys. It is good to hear that you have an attorney in place. I trust that your attorney has advised you of the strengths and weaknesses in the case. Good luck.
