Everyone has had a slip or trip and fall in their life. Sometimes the cause of the fall might be from their own doing, but most of the time, it’s because of a preventable hazard. These hazards can include ice that was not easily noticeable because it was covered by snow, unseen holes in grass that are covered and left unfilled by a construction company, cracks and lips in sidewalks, or unsafe stairs that didn’t have a handrail or landing.
Whatever the cause of the fall may be, it’s crucial that you take certain steps to ensure your best interests are protected. Ideally, it would be best if you kept in mind the following:
Notify those responsible
It’s always important to remember that the injured person has to prove their claim in any personal injury case. Unlike in car collisions, where there is plenty of documentation to show what happened, slips/trips and falls often lack proof to support the incident. If you follow the recommendations made here, you’re one step closer to ensuring you recover the compensation you deserve.
