Were you Injured from a Fall on Someone Else's Property?

Most people just don't realize how incredibly hurt you can get by slipping and falling on a hard surface. If you have had a slip and fall or if you work in the premises liability industry, you know - major injuries can easily occur simply by slipping and falling down. If you have become injured in this manner, you're not alone. You'll need to get medical treatment, recommended for even those who feel they are okay.

These are the types of injuries in which you may have injured yourself and it may not be apparent for days, weeks, or months. The nature of premises liability cases is of urgency. Both the need to gather evidence quickly and the procedural limitations require that you assert your claim soon after it occurs. This is particularly true in snow and ice case, but still important in all premises liability cases.

The reason is logical. If there was some sort of defect or hazard which caused your fall, we'll want to clearly document it to support your case. The defense, whether it be an insurance company or the owner's own claims department, will take the position that the fall was your fault and that no liability exists against the property owner of its insurance company. We will want the evidence gathered and preserved. We'll want to speak with any witnesses available soon after the fall. It is entirely likely that the property owner will make changes or improvements to the property after the fall and we'll want to document the property before that occurs. If we have, for example, a defective staircase, we will want to inspect and take photos of it before it is replaced by a compliant version. As the injured party, it is your responsibility to prove their negligence, not the other way around. For that, we need good supporting evidence which is best gathered shortly after the injury.

If you have been injured because of someone else's negligence or because of a defect or hazard on a property, you're entitled to monetary damages. You are clearly entitled to any direct lost wages and medical bills. Less clear is the compensation to which you are entitled for your pain and suffering, including your loss of enjoyment. That means, are entitled to money for the pain you've had to endure. The same goes if you've had to give up activities, such as exercise, that you once enjoyed, but can't because of the injury. If the case is not resolved through our negotiation with the claims professional, we'll resolve it through negotiation as part of the litigation or by judgment at trial. In the latter event, the jury would decide the damages, subject to some review by the judge.
