Discovering Who Is Liable
Your attorney will investigate your accident to uncover who could be held liable by determining:
- Exactly how and where the accident occurred
- Whether another party’s negligence was responsible for the accident
- The injuries you sustained
Many times, a slip-and-fall accident happens very fast, and you may not be completely aware of how it happened. Some scenarios that could have caused your slip-and-fall include:
- Wet floors
- Slipping on something on a staircase
- Tripping over items
- Uneven steps
Property owners and managers have a responsibility to keep their properties clear of unreasonable hazards, such as poorly constructed stairs, snow and ice on walkways, and uneven pavement.
Your attorney will investigate the incident to determine whether the condition of the property was to blame for your accident. He or she will also evaluate whether the property owner or manager violated laws by not maintaining the condition of the property.
Accurately Proving Damages
An experienced attorney will help you accurately evaluate the damages and injuries you have suffered due to the accident, which could include:
- Inability to work presently or in the future
- Expensive medical bills
- Future medical care
- Permanent, debilitating injuries
Your lawyer will gather evidence to help prove the damages related to your accident. This evidence may include:
- Medical bills
- Medical records
- Medical tests (X-rays, CAT scans, etc.)
- Lost income statements
- Written documentation from your treating physician
To help ensure you receive the maximum compensation owed to you, it is best to work with a knowledgeable attorney who will evaluate your injuries and damages appropriately.
