A significant fall can result in pain, time off work, hefty medical bills, and a variety of other life-altering consequences. In these situations, the victim must consider whether the accident, and thus their injuries, would have occurred if a specific property-related scenario, such as salting an icy sidewalk or repairing a broken step, had been handled.
If you have grounds to suspect your accident could have been avoided, you should contact a
lawsuit, several different elements will qualify as significant evidence, such as photos of the accident area and eyewitness testimony (this includes police and emergency personnel). Medical bills will also help you prove the extent of your injuries as well as your immediate financial loss.
You might also keep a written record of your injuries right after the accident happens so that you don't forget anything vital. Cleaning policies and copies of previous property inspections, for example, may provide evidence of a history of bad upkeep and lack of premises care. This will help assess whether or not a property owner took reasonable precautions to ensure the safety of those on the premises, and whether or not premises liability was a factor in the case.
Finally, in a slip and fall case, proof of lost wages (both projected and current), proof of pain and suffering, and any other losses incurred as a result of the accident (such as transportation expenditures) can and should be submitted.
