Injuries from Falling at Premises or Business
When you enter a store, restaurant or business, you are owed a duty by the owner that the premises will be safe and that you will be warned of hazards. That includes falling on the sidewalk because of snow or in the aisle because of debris that the shop owner failed to remove. Who is responsible? Shop owner? Maintenance Company? Both?
In these cases, a thorough investigation is needed since many large companies will use other businesses to clean, maintain and even supervise workers. Also, the employees are trained not to give statements and will rarely assist you in obtaining the information to make your claim. They will sometimes deny that surveillance footage exists that would clearly document the incident.
If you fall or trip at a business premises, here are some things to remember:
Seek Medical Treatment
Prioritize your health and attend all scheduled doctor's appointments.
Consult with a Lawyer Before Speaking to Insurers
Insurance companies may attempt to obtain statements or prompt a quick settlement from you. Never speak to the insurance adjusters or representatives until you have legal representation.
Inquire About Healthcare Expenses
Submit the costs of medical treatments to any applicable health insurer. Upon resolving your case, your health insurance company will typically be reimbursed for a portion of the expenses they covered for your medical care.
Consult with Your Attorneys
While this process is typical, you should consult with your attorneys for advice on your particular situation.
