CAN I SUE IF I SLIP AND FALL?
You definitely can! As long as you have evidence that you were injured due to the negligence of the property you were injured at, then you have a great case on your hands. Just be sure to have all of the necessary evidence to make your case is relevant. Having witnesses, photos, medical bills, surveillance footage, and proof of loss wages (time off work due to injury) can really help your case. Remember, to win a slip and fall case, you, the victim, must have evidence that it was due to the negligence of the property owner.
WHEN SHOULD I GET A SLIP AND FALL ATTORNEY?
Your medical bills are piling up and you’re missing work due to your injuries, causing you to lose money left and right. Doctors are calling you saying you owe thousands on your medical bills, and you have no idea how you’re going to afford it! That’s when it’s time to give our slip and fall attorney a call! We protect you against the insurance companies, which rarely acknowledge liability to a person with no representation. Our slip and fall accident attorney will recognize all of the factors that can affect liability and damages caused, whether positive or negative.
WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU HAVE A SLIP AND FALL ACCIDENT
You were involved in a slip and fall accident in a store or a mall, what do you do? If your injuries are serious, then you must seek medical attention within 72 hours, or sooner, after you’ve been injured. You’ll then have to report the accident to either the manager, owner and/or landlord of the property you had the accident at. Be sure to document everything too! So collect names, phone numbers, email addresses, and addresses of the witnesses so you can file the best claim possible. You’ll also need pictures of the EXACT location you had the accident at.
WHEN DO I SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION IN SLIP AND FALL CASE?
The most important reason to seek medical attention in a case is for your safety. Serious injuries, such as broken ribs or a torn ligament, can be oblivious to the victim before diagnosed. The victim may think they’re experiencing a little soreness, but the problem can be much bigger. If you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms, please seek medical attention:
- Tenderness or soreness in ribs, ankles, arms, back, etc
- Broken/fractured bones
HOW MUCH CAN I GET COMPENSATED?
Generally speaking, the compensation earned is made to pay by the liable party based on your damages, so this includes medical bill costs, lost income if work was missed due to your injury, compensation for your pain and suffering, and God forbid, any funeral expenses. The total compensation amount can range depending on how serious the injury was. No law states that a person should receive X dollars for pain and medical expenses because of a slip on a spill or missing a step due to faulty maintenance, so this is where we come in to fight for the compensation that YOU deserve.
Every case varies, but the general rule of thumb is the greater the injuries and impact it had on your daily life, the greater the compensation!
