Slip and Fall Injuries

“Slip and fall” accidents involve problems with surfaces or structures, such as an uneven floor, a slippery sidewalk from snow or ice accumulation, or a hidden hole in a yard.  In all cases, the injury may be attributable to the owner or occupier for not providing reasonably safe premises.  When this happens, it is important make sure you understand all the legal options available to you to claim damages.

What You Should Do
It is a good idea to take photographs of the location of the accident, put aside your footwear for future reference, and obtain the names and contact information of any witnesses.  This should be done right away, if possible, as conditions can often change after the accident.  Report the accident to the occupier or owner of the property and then talk to a lawyer as soon as possible after the injury has been sustained.  This is particularly important if the injury results in a chronic and/or disabling problem, if there is a possibility of loss of future earning capacity, or if the injury reduces your quality of life due to pain or physical restriction.

Victims are often unaware of their legal recourse, or they are tempted to settle too quickly after the injury.  However, the full impact of soft tissue injuries may not be apparent until long after that agreement and there is no way for this to be addressed if you settle too quickly.  Therefore, it is vital to not rush into anything until you have an in-depth discussion with a lawyer about all the dynamics involved.  It is important to make an informed, intelligent decision, and you can only do that with appropriate legal advice early in the process.
