Defining Slip and Fall Accidents
A slip and fall accident is one of the most common kind of premises liability accidents. If you are involved in an accident on the property of another and the person responsible for that property has been negligent, then you may have the basis for a personal injury lawsuit. However, in order to be able to make a viable claim, the responsible party must have been remiss in providing the proper level of care.
As mentioned on our page focusing on premises liability accidents, there are three levels of care corresponding to why someone has entered onto a property. The highest level of care is afforded to business invitees, the next level is given to licensees, and the final and lowest level is attributed to trespassers.
Basically, someone would be considered to be negligent if he or she knew of a hazardous situation or should have known about it and either failed to alert a visitor to the hazard or did not attend to eliminating the danger. In addition, in order to bring suit in a civil court, one must have suffered injuries and/or had property lost or damaged. Additionally, the injured party must have acted in a responsible manner while on the property.
Get Medical Help First
If you are injured in a slip and fall accident, it is important that you seek medical attention as soon as possible. In some instances, if your injuries are severe enough, you won’t have a choice as to when you get medical help. However, if you decide to wait to seek medical attention, then it is important to do so within the first seventy-two hours, as injury claims made by those who are examined within that timeframe tend to be given more weight by insurers.
Seeing a doctor will help to establish a baseline for your injuries, will create a medical record of such injuries, and will aid in verifying your legal claim. It is also important to follow the instructions of your doctors concerning additional appointments, examinations by specialists, and any advice concerning prescribed medications, recommended treatments, and behaviors to avoid.
Do You Have a Case?
If you are injured due to the negligence of another, you should meet with a personal injury attorney who is experienced in representing those who have been injured in slip and fall accidents. You should contact a lawyer as soon as possible. If you call Attorney Aaron R. Coven and are unable to come to his office to meet with him, he will gladly meet you at a place and time of your convenience.
Acquiring legal representation early in the process will allow you to tell your story to your attorney while it is still fresh in your mind. It will also enable your attorney to collect evidence while it is still undisturbed, and aid your legal team in developing a strategy for your claim and coordinate all aspects of it in a timely manner. This will go a long way in giving you an upper hand in your attempt to get the compensation that you deserve.
Compensation in Slip and Fall Cases
If you are injured in a slip and fall accident, you are entitled to recover for medical bills, lost wages, and physical and/or mental pain and suffering. Additionally, if your injuries are of a chronic or permanent nature, then you may sue for future medical bills and care.
