What Should I Do if I've been

Injured in a Slip & Fall Accident?

If you've been injured in a slip and fall injury, chances are the property manager is already in defense mode.  You may have been asked to fill out a report or a form but not given a copy.  You need an experienced advocate on your side to guide you through the next steps.

The landowner isn't always liable

​A business or property owner isn't always responsible simply because you were injured on his property.  There must be negligence in order to hold the landowner liable.  Further, the law is stacked in favor of the landowner.  There must have been a dangerous or negligent condition that the landowner or property manager knew about, or should have about.  Further, it must have been a condition that was not open and obvious.  As you might imagine, these cases can be hard to win.

-Get Immediate Medical Attention 

If you've been injured, go to the emergency room or call your doctor.  Do not Delay.  

-Do Not Give A Statement 

Do not give a statement to the store manager, the risk management people, or  the adverse insurance company.   Anything you say can and will be used against you.  They are gathering evidence.

-Contact Your Lawyer

Every case is different, and although quick answers to common questions can be helpful, you may have additional questions or different details.  Contact your lawyer for a private, confidential free consultation. To learn more about YOUR case, give us a call or fill in the quick consult form.
