Question:

What mistakes should I avoid after a slip and fall injury?

Answer:

The most common mistake I see when people who have been injured in a slip and fall are one, they think it’s their fault. They think they’re clumsy. They don’t think that they shouldn’t say anything to the store owner or the person that owns the property. That’s just not true. You need to make sure you contact an attorney and help them understand what happened and what the circumstances were like. In a lot of cases, it’s not the person’s fault that slipped, fell, and got hurt; it’s the premises owner who didn’t keep a safe and orderly floor plan out there. Don’t think it’s your fault.Mistakes to Avoid After a Slip and Fall InjuryThe second mistake people make in a slip and fall injury case is they don’t seek medical treatment soon enough and if they do seek medical treatment, they don’t do what the doctor asks them to do because they don’t think they have time or they can’t afford it. Doctors professionals. When you see a doctor, follow their advice. If you don’t, it will come back on you when you try to negotiate your case or you try to go to trial with your case.
The third mistake clients make is they don’t hire attorneys soon enough and so a lot of the evidence is gone. The store might be remodeled. The event, device, or structure that caused the slip and fall might be gone now, might be disappeared, might be fixed, and so you can’t take good pictures of really what happened to show a jury. Hire an attorney. Select an attorney and let them take care of the investigation, the preservation of evidence, and help them orchestrate this case for you and direct you in the right ways.
