If your injury is severe or may be life-threatening, get medical emergency help right away. Call 911 or ask the property owner or manager to do so for you. If you do not require emergency medical care, still seek a medical evaluation as soon as you can so that you can start documenting injuries and so that you can rule out any possible injuries that do not present symptoms right away.
Your second priority will be to get as much documentation about your injuries and its causes as possible. Take photos of the area where you were injured, including any leaky pipes, uneven flooring, or other potential hazards. Get the contact information for any witnesses as well as any details that you can remember about the accident.
Report the injury to the property owner or manager of the property and get an incident report if there is one. In addition to reporting the injury and documenting your injury, make sure that you keep any evidence of costs related to your injury. For example, keep any receipts related to your medical care, transportation costs, medical expenses, and other costs related to your injury.
Once you've done these things, contact a personal injury attorney in Fort Lauderdale or your community to review what options you have for legal recourse and compensation. An attorney can help you evaluate the likely total cost of your injuries and can help you explore your options for getting fair compensation so that you not have to pay all these costs out-of-pocket.Don’t Make an Expensive Mistake: Contact a Personal Injury Attorney
All too often, Flaxman Law Group attorneys have seen that premises liability claimants do not seek legal advice if they have been injured. Unfortunately, this can end up being a very expensive decision. In many cases, time simply runs out and victims can no longer seek fair compensation for their injuries. In some cases, victims inadvertently sign away some of their rights for a lowball offer or end up missing out on compensation options because they wait too late and important evidence is no longer available to prove their injuries or the property owner’s negligence.
Unfortunately, if you do not seek fair compensation right away you may end up paying for a significant portion of your injuries, lost income, and other expenses out of your own pocket. To find out what you can do right now, contact Flaxman Law Group for a free, no obligation consultation.
