About Slip and Fall Legal Cases
Every year, countless people are injured in retail stores, supermarkets, bars and restaurants, parking lots, apartment buildings, and private homes, requiring legal assistance from an experienced slip and fall attorney. In many cases, these slips falls, and other accidents could have been prevented by the property owners.
Many people who become injured due to a slip and fall accident in a public or private place never consult an attorney because they do not believe that their specific situation or their injuries entitle them to compensation. Some examples of slip and fall injuries that often entitle victims to receive compensation include:
- Fractured, cracked or broken bones.
- Major burns are typically classified as 2nd or 3rd degree.
- Accidents result in bone or joint dislocation.
- Head injuries.
- Injuries involving ruptured or herniated disks.
- Knee, ankle, neck and back injuries
Tips for Handling a Slip & Fall Injury
- Be sure to report the injury and how you were injured to the manager, owner, or employee who works on the property immediately. If an accident report is filled out, request a copy of it.
- Try to take as many mental notes of your surroundings as possible. Write them down at your first opportunity. This is important in any type of injury case, especially in Premises Liability cases.
- If possible, take pictures of the hazard that caused you to fall. Nowadays, most of us have cameras on our cell phones. After ensuring you are okay, do your best to document the scene. Document it yourself, or have a friend do so for you.
- Take down the names and contact information of witnesses who witnessed your fall or what caused you to fall. These cases can often boil down to “he said, she said”, so the more witnesses who can accurately state what happened, the better.
