Advice for Victims of Globe Slip and Fall Accidents

By Breyer Law Offices on January 23, 2015

If you are involved in a Globe slip and fall accident, you may have to endure a stay in the hospital, followed by physical therapy and a long bed rest. Victims of slip and fall incidents that sustain serious injuries often feel helpless and don’t know where to turn for help. The trouble with these types of accidents is that it may be difficult to determine liability. However, you can improve your chances at a positive case outcome by following the tips below.

  • Never agree to anything at the site of the incident. If you are injured at a place of business, the owner or manager may try to offer you something for your troubles, like a gift card. If you accept this compensation, it could be used against you during a lawsuit and claimed as a settlement, leaving you without the compensation you need to pay for your medical bills.
  • Always seek medical attention. If you leave the store on foot and later go to the doctor, you could jeopardize your claim. The security camera footage could show you walking away, making it look as though you were not injured, or that your injuries were not significant.
  • Visit the physician. Go to a medical provider who can fully assess the extent of your injuries and record them in your medical file. Your doctor will also help you determine the best course of action for your medical care.
  • Contact a skilled and experienced personal injury attorney. It is understandable why you might feel that you don’t need an attorney. After all, if the business is at fault, they should be willing to help you. However, a personal injury attorney can ensure that you’re treated fairly and that you receive the compensation you deserve.

Remember a slip and fall accident can make you feel helpless and alone, but the fact is, you are not alone. One call to a premier injury attorney can put you on the path to recovery right away.
