About Me

Working With Your Lawyer

About ten years ago, I was involved in a bad car accident. Another driver, who happened to be driving drunk at the time, smashed into the car I was driving. In addition to killing my daughter, the accident also left me paralyzed from the waist down. Although the case should have been cut and dry, the insurance company claimed that I was at fault. Fortunately, I worked with a lawyer who was able to fight my case for me. Without his help, I would still be paying off medical bills. I want to spread the word about the good that lawyers can do, which is why I created this website.

Four Little Things To Help Prove You Were Not At Fault For Your Slip And Fall Accident

If you slipped and fell on someone else's property, you could've possibly become injured. The best way to determine whether or not this is true is to always visit a doctor right after the incident. There could be an underlying injury that you are unaware of. Many people often hurt their backs, in this kind of situation, and this could lead to prolonged problems that you will want to be compensated for, if the incident was not your fault. Here are four little things that can help prove your case:

  1. ​The Hazard Has Already Been Noted: This is something that your personal injury lawyer can help you with. If the hazard has been noted in the past, either from a previous slip and fall case or just from someone pointing it out, it shows the property owner in really bad light because, obviously, it wasn't something that was taken care of. Your personal injury lawyer will attempt to find witnesses that can help prove this or previous cases that have involved the same property. 
  2. ​The Negligence of the Property by the Owner: Any property that is owned must be taken care of. If there is no routine maintenance set in place, or the property is just fairly ignored altogether, this also puts the property owner in a bad light, which helps proves your case further. Your personal injury lawyer will look into any previous maintenance that has been done on the property, if there has been any at all, and match it with the standard guidelines pertaining to that property's maintenance.
  3. There Was an Object Your Tripped Over: Most likely, you tripped on an object that probably wasn't supposed to be there. Take pictures of the object, or whatever it was that caused you to fall, as well as the surrounding area, to show there was no warning signs, as well as no reason for that object to be there and how hazardous it is where it was on the property.
  4. The Object Has No Use: In some cases, there is something on the property that is not being used and has, thus, become a hazard. This includes a drain pipe that is not connected or an electrical plug that sticks up from the ground that isn't connected to the electricity of the property. Whatever the case, these objects can probably be proved to needing removal a long time ago. 

These four things can seriously help your case go far, but you will need a personal injury lawyer by your side to provide further evidence that will help your case stand strong. To continue reading more about injury compensation, talk to a personal injury lawyer.
