A fall injury can leave a person with a long road to recovery. Surgery, hospitalization, doctor-ordered rest and onset of chronic pain are often consequences of a slip-and-fall accident in a parking lot (including snow and ice left unplowed or removed), grocery store, other retail store, or recreation area. You may not be able to work or enjoy life as before for quite a long time. You should get medical care as well as legal advise as soon as possible.
It is very important to get emergency medical treatment as soon as possible, for a legitimate injury, in order to get your injury documented in its early stages. This important step could mean the difference between recovering compensation and having to deal with the results of the injury entirely on your own.
A prompt investigation, including photogrtaphs of the scene of the accident, interviews with eyewitnesses and review of medical records may prove property owner negligence. Your premises liabiltiy case will be stronger and more effective if an experienced attorney gathers evidence and prepares compelling arguments on your behalf.
Note: If your slip-and-fall accident occured at work, you may have a workers’ compensation claim. You may also have a third-party liablilty claim against a subcontractor or other responsible party (other than the employer) such as, equipment manufacturers, property owners and equipment maintenance services, whose negligence caused or contributed to the accident.
