Slip and Fall Attorney/Premises Liability Lawyer
If you or a loved one have been injured in a slip and fall accident, there are very important steps that should be taken to protect your rights and ensure that you are properly compensated by those at fault. It is important to report the accident to the property owner or manager as soon as it happens, to ensure that it is documented. A thorough incident report will often include useful information such as date and time of accident, names of witnesses, and the nature of the injuries sustained. Most importantly, however, an incident report helps establish that an accident took place, making it more difficult for a property owner to deny it ever happened. In many cases, the parties injured during slip and fall accidents are unable to file incident reports on their own behalf, because their injuries have left them hospitalized or bedridden. This is why it is critical to involve a slip and fall attorney from the outset of your case, to ensure that a proper investigation is launched and that the proper entities receive notice of the incident. A lawyer with premises liability experience will know the proper experts to retain in investigating the site, obtaining surveillance footage and/or photographs, and identifying and interviewing witnesses. Some slip and fall accidents are complicated further by the fact that the hazards that cause the accidents are temporary, such as a liquid spill in a supermarket, which can be cleaned up very quickly, destroying critical evidence. Personal Injury Attorney Jonathan S. Comitz is experienced to handle slip and fall cases such as this. He will initiate the steps necessary to preserve evidence and will help identify witnesses to support your case.
