How Can I Hold a Negligent Property Owner Legally liable?
Premises liability accidents can be difficult to investigate, especially if you do not gather evidence and contact a slip and fall lawyer as soon as possible. Property owners may destroy or cover up evidence, or make repairs. Because of this, it’s important to gather evidence immediately following the accident. Evidence can include photos of the accident scene, from multiple angles, medical records from any medical treatment you received, video footage, witness statements, and any other documentation related to the accident.
If you suffered injuries, speaking with a slip and fall lawyer immediately following the accident can give your case the best chance of success. A slip and fall lawyer can investigate the accident and build a case that demonstrates that the property owner knew or should have known about the dangerous condition on their land and failed to address it. A slip and fall attorney will also assess the extent of the injuries and the impact they have had on your life.
Slip and fall victims can sustain various injuries, ranging from minor bruises to severe fractures, head trauma, or spinal cord injuries. These injuries can result in medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and diminished quality of life. Your attorney will work with medical professionals, life care planners, economists, and other experts, to accurately value your claim and determine your medical care needs in the future.
During this time, they will negotiate with the homeowner’s insurance company to fight for your right to economic and non-economic damages.
