Have been a patron at a store or restaurant recently and sustained an injury from an accident? You could be eligible to receive a monetary reward. This could help with any medical costs, as well as lost wages. These cases, known as slip-and-fall, occur frequently. It is possible that the establishment is at fault for your accident. Contacting an attorney who is experienced in these cases is important. He or she can consult with you, determine if you have a claim and give you advice on how to proceed.
Most customers consume their food inside their cars. These people have little risk of injury from slip and fall. However, locations do have outside areas where customers can consume food. In these areas, there is risk from spilled soft drinks, shakes and ice cream, food particles including lettuce, sauces, meat, and other things.
After getting injured, contacting a lawyer as soon as possible is important. This is for several reasons. Any injuries would be very fresh and more likely directly related to the injury. Witnesses will be easier to acquire and will remember more about the accident. The establishment will have less of an opportunity to change the evidence and build a defense for themselves.
However, the most important reason is the statute of limitations, or SOL. This is the time period that you have to legally file your claim in court. You may not ever be able to file your claim if you wait until the SOL date has passed. This varies from state-to-state, so time is important.
Nonetheless, if you have been injured in a slip and fall accident, you should consult a personal injury attorney.
