Most of us have taken our share of tumbles in life. A property owner isn’t automatically responsible for an injury just because someone falls or is injured on the premises. A Greensboro Slip & Fall Lawyer at Garrett, Walker, Aycoth & Olson is here to help you with your case.
On the other hand, the law demands that all property owners and businesses provide a safe environment for people on their property. If an injury is caused by a defect or hazard on the property, there is a potential claim for damages (medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages) that result from the injury.We have represented people who have fallen in shopping centers because of hazards (like water or birdseed that is on the floor or potholes in the parking lot). Other cases have involved falls in apartment buildings because a landing or staircase has been inadequately lit or there were no handrails. Whether the fall occurs on business or private property, there are insurance coverage issues that must be taken into account.
What should I do after I have a Slip & Fall Case?If you are injured on someone’s property, seek immediate medical attention. As soon as possible, have photographs taken of the scene of the injury, since the property could be fixed quickly and then the evidence of what caused the injury disappears.
It can be helpful to have a Greensboro Slip & Fall Lawyer assist you in locating the insurance policy associated with the premises on which the injury occurred.
