Stigma around “Suing” Someone for an Accident

Slip and fall law is one that is sometimes looked down on or is commonly joked about in pop culture. However, anytime someone is seriously hurt, and it could have been prevented, that is no laughing matter. It’s normal to feel hesitant to pursue a claim against a business; after all, you were the one who fell. The thing that you need to understand is that anytime there is an accident, a legal process is going to follow.

You may want to just go and seek medical attention for your injury, but then find your health insurance provider is denying the claim because they believe someone else is at fault. The point is, all of the other entities involved will have a team of lawyers working hard to protect their interests, and it’s a good idea for you to have a lawyer to protect your interests as well.

Common Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents

Grocery stores, shopping malls, county courthouses and all other public buildings have a duty to their customers (paying and non-paying) to keep their environment safe. Walkways should be safe, well-lit, and kept clear of debris. When there is a spill, a business has a duty to clean it up. Walkways along grass or other landscaping should be kept clear of mud or other runoff.

The circumstances around how you fell will very likely be contested, so it’s important to take pictures (or if you are unable, have someone else take pictures) of the accident scene immediately. Newly waxed floors, incorrectly laid carpet, spills and splashes that don’t get cleaned up in a timely manner can all contribute to an accident, and being able to prove that they were there is key.
