It is important for you to know that it can be difficult to prove liability in a slip and fall case and that there are essentially four elements that you must prove in order to be eligible to collect damages.
These elements include:
- You were on the property legally, as an invitee to another individual's property you are owed a duty of care and a violation of this duty that results in your injuries could allow you to collect damages.
- The owner knew, or should have known, about the hazard.
- The owner failed to remove the obstacle, clean the slippery surface or failed to provide adequate warning of the danger, thereby acting negligently.
- You were injured because of a lack of warning and any other reasonable individual would have been injured in the same way.
What Should I Do After My Accident?
To make sure that you are in the best position to receive compensation for your injury, there are a few steps that you should take. First, make sure that your physical health is fully checked out by a trained medical professional. Injuries can often go unnoticed until days or weeks later. A doctor can take the appropriate tests to see if there are any hidden injuries and give the appropriate treatment for them.
Next, you should take pictures of the scene of the accident, and note the details of the surface or object that caused your fall. If you are unable to do this, then ask a friend or family member to go in your place. Owners or the employees of a business may try to cover up the accident, so you should try to do this as soon as possible after the accident. If there were any witnesses, then it would be wise to get their contact info, in case you need a statement from them. You should also report the accident to the owner or manager of the premises in which you had your accident.
After taking these steps, then you should get in touch with a Quincy slip and fall attorney from our firm before doing anything else. Both the owners and their insurance companies may try to get you to make statements saying that you were at fault, so it is important to talk to our firm before making any further actions. Our attorneys can help you draft a statement to the insurance companies and pursue settlement or litigation with the person who caused your fall.
