Slip and fall accidents can result in life-altering injuries and conditions. Filing for such a personal injury case is tricky. Any little slip up can set back your claim, so it’s important to understand how the process works and why you should or shouldn’t do certain things. Some slip and fall victims may feel the urge to leave the premises right away to escape embarrassment, but it’s important to bring the incident and hazard(s) involved to the manager’s attention right away. Even if the pain isn’t intense, it is recommended that you go to the hospital, medical center, or your primary care doctor to get examined as soon as you can. Insurance companies will be closely following everything you do after the accident with the intentions to lower your settlement by trying to prove that you aren’t as badly affected by the incident as you are.
Don’t accept a settlement without speaking to a knowledgeable team of legal experts first. Sometimes, companies rush to a settlement, hoping you will accept it before speaking with an attorney. This allows them to minimize your settlement.
