What Is A Slip And Fall Case?
A slip-and-fall case is when you have fallen on someone else’s property because they breached their duty of care to you. It’s when you hurt yourself because the property owner should have known about and warned you of the dangerous conditions that caused your fall. It is the owner’s responsibility to maintain a safe environment; because they did not do so, you can sue for damages.
What Should I Do If I Slip and Fall?
Of course, after you have fallen and injured yourself it is important to seek medical help right away. But if you or a companion is able to, it is crucial to document the situation as much as possible. Take pictures of the area and the dangerous conditions, ask witnesses for their names and contact information, and get the names of the property owner and manager. When you get medical care, save all bills and paperwork.
