You can improve your chances of recovering damages for a slip-and-fall accident if you take certain steps. If possible, take photos or video of the property hazard and get the names of any witnesses. You should seek medical attention even if you think your injuries are minor. You could risk further injury if you have a fracture or ligament damage, and it weakens your injury claim if you delay seeing a doctor.
Stephen Rue & Associates Law Firm can send an investigator to document the dangerous condition before it is repaired or covered up. We know how to show that the property owner was negligent in property maintenance or code compliance, or failed to respond to an obvious hazard or complaints from tenants or patrons.
