No Recovery, You Owe Us Nothing
Getting injured on someone else’s property can be a traumatic experience. Not only are you in pain (and perhaps severely injured), but you are away from home, and you do not know what you need to do in order to ensure that your medical bills will be covered.
In this scenario, the best thing you can do is to discuss your situation with an experienced Valdosta slip and fall lawyer. Not only might you be entitled to coverage for your medical expenses, but you might be entitled to additional compensation as well. This includes compensation for your lost wages (if you are unable to work), your pain and suffering, and other economic and non-economic losses.
In order to recover your losses after a slip and fall accident, you must be able to prove that the property owner or tenant was negligent. Property owners and business owners are not automatically liable for all accidents occurring on their premises. But, negligence can take many different forms; and, in many cases, it will be possible to hold property owners and tenants accountable. For example, common grounds for filing premises liability claims include:
Oftentimes, one of the most challenging aspects of pursuing a premises liability claim will be proving that you feel as the result of a dangerous property condition. Many slip and fall hazards are temporary by nature (i.e. spills and maintenance issues), and property owners will usually try to remedy issues quickly once they learn that someone has been injured.
Fortunately, there are several ways to prove that a property owner is liable for a slip and fall accident. Depending on the circumstances involved, these can include photos from the scene of the accident, witness testimony and even surveillance camera footage. However, in order to collect critical evidence before it disappears, it is essential that you speak with a lawyer as soon as possible.
