Injured in a slip & fall accident? What you NEED to know!
Whether you slipped and fell on a wet grocery store aisle, tripped over goods in a department store or had an accident in other public venue, property owners can be held liable for injuries that occur because of negligent maintenance or a failure to warn patrons of a potentially dangerous condition.
If you are injured on someone else's property and want to file a slip and fall lawsuit against the negligent party, there are several important steps you need to take to help substantiate your claim for damages and maximize your monetary recovery.
"First you must report the slip and fall accident, document every detail to prove that a hazardous or unsafe condition existed, gather eyewitness information, call 911, seek medical attention and save your medical records and then speak with a personal injury attorney." says attorney Scott Donaldson.
Victims may sue for a host of damages including loss of income and future earning potential, past and future medical bills, emotional distress and loss of enjoyment of life.
If you've been hurt on someone else's property, you need a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer on your side. The attorneys at Donaldson & Weston can guide you and your family through the process, so you can focus on getting your life back on track.
