After a slip and fall accident, you may be aware that you could file a lawsuit to recover compensation for your medical bills and other costs tied to the accident. However, trying to manage a slip and fall injury claim on your own in New Jersey can be difficult, which is why an experienced personal injury law firm should be contacted immediately.
There are a number of different critical issues that need to be investigated promptly after a slip and fall accident and signing a release with an insurance company or providing more information than is necessary to the potentially responsible party could endanger the integrity of your claim. Slip and fall injuries are often the most confusing for victims who have suffered them. Premises liability cases, or those situations in which a property owner or manager had a responsibility to maintain a safe property and failed to do so, can prompt you to file a legal claim for compensation.
Commercial users and property owners may attempt to deny liability immediately after an accident occurs. This makes it all the more important to have a comprehensive investigation launched immediately such that you can understand how the accident occurred.
Identifying that a property manager or owner knew about a dangerous condition and failed to take action to remove it or mitigate it, or proving that they should have known about such a condition, could cause them to be held liable in court for the injuries you have sustained and the resulting medical bills and other expenses. No one will look out for your interests after a slip and fall injury like an experienced attorney, who can tell you more about how the medical conditions you have sustained because of the accident will influence your future and the types of compensation which may be available to you.
You may be tempted to take a low settlement offer from the other side immediately after a slip and fall accident but you should first consult with a knowledgeable slip and fall attorney.
