Individuals who slip and fall due to the careless or negligent actions of a property owner could sustain a wide variety of injuries. This includes, but is not limited to:
These types of physical injuries only paint part of a picture the slip and fall injury victim will experience. Injury victims may also suffer from significant emotional and psychological trauma caused by the incident, the injuries, and the lengthy recovery process. This can include feelings of sleeplessness, anxiety, stress, and fear.
It is crucial for slip and fall injury victims to seek medical treatment as soon as possible. If necessary, take an ambulance from the slip and fall accident scene to the hospital, particularly if the injuries are open and obvious. However, there are times when slip and fall injuries do not have signs or symptoms of pain right away. That does not necessarily mean that there is no injury.
We recommend that any slip and fall injury victim go right to an emergency clinic or their primary care physician when they leave the scene of the incident. Let a doctor conduct an evaluation to determine whether or not there may be some hidden injuries. Additionally, if you have to make an insurance claim or file a personal injury lawsuit, going to the doctor very quickly helps establish a timeline of events. This will give insurance carriers or at-fault party legal teams very little wiggle room by preventing them from saying that you refused medical care.
Personal injury claims can become incredibly complicated in Riverside, particularly when victims have to go up against well-funded legal teams or insurance carriers. That is why an attorney is absolutely necessary. Your lawyer will be an advocate fighting on your behalf. They will use their resources to fully investigate every aspect of the incident in question in order to gather all of the evidence needed to prove liability.
You will not have to handle any communication with other parties involved. Your lawyer will be in charge of this communication and any negotiations to reach a settlement. By working with trusted medical and economic experts, your attorney will know exactly how much your claim is worth and will not hesitate to go to trial if necessary.
