Aside from seeking medical treatment for your injuries, it is essential to gather some preliminary evidence following your accident. Documentation is the key to proving someone was negligent in maintaining the safety of the property thus causing you slip and fall and sustain injuries.
Many factors can substantiate a slip and fall claim. If you suffered injuries because of any of the following reasons, you might be eligible to file a claim:
The insurance carrier that covers the business or home owner who owns the property where the accident occurred pays the claim. Under the Occupiers’ Liability Act, an occupier of land owes a duty of reasonable care to those who come onto the premises.
In other words, the property owner or occupier must take necessary measures to keep the premises reasonably safe. When you go into a supermarket, for example, and the floor is wet and slippery, the staff operating the store must take immediate action to resolve the dangerous conditions. The action should be to remove the fluid and post warning signs on the wet floor until it is completely dry. The supermarket should also have a system of maintenance and inspection in place to detect and address any hazards that arise.
Embarrassment or fear of conflict should not be a reason to avoid filing a claim. Your friend or family member’s homeowner’s insurance policy would be responsible for covering your damages. Therefore, you should not have to deal with the homeowner directly.
Should you retain our legal services, we would handle all communications with the insurance company taking any embarrassment, conflict, and shame out of the equation and allowing you to preserve the valuable relationships in your life.
