Slip and fall cases are not as easy as they seemed to be 20 years ago. They have become very complicated types of cases. Far more extensive evidence for or against the injured party is often needed as a result of the many fraudulent slip and fall cases of the past, and the incorporation of technology and surveillance cameras businesses now use to protect themselves from fraudulent liability claims.
You do not want to give the establishment time to clean up, correct, or fix the conditions that caused your slip, trip, or fall injuries before it can be documented.
If you are injured in a slip, trip, or fall it is important that you take photos or videos of the area and conditions that caused the slip, trip or fall injuries. If you are physically unable to take pictures or video, you should ask someone you are with or someone at the scene to take pictures or video for you. You should also try to get the names and numbers of any witnesses to the accident.
You should immediately file an incident report with the business establishment, or a written account of the accident if the incident happened in a private home. If you are not physically able to immediately file the report, you should do so at the earliest time possible.
What types of compensation and damages may I be entitled to seek as a slip, trip, or fall injury victim?
- Injuries as a direct result of the accident or incident;
- Medical bills directly related to you or your injuries, including medical treatment, physical therapy &, rehabilitation costs, prescription costs, necessary medical equipment, and if necessary, long term or permanent treatment and care;
- Lost Wages;
- Pain and Suffering;
- Permanent or long-term diminished quality of life.
If the accident resulted in the untimely death of your loved one, immediate family members may seek justice through wrongful death civil litigation.
