Slip, Trip & Fall Accidents
North Dakota, Minnesota & Montana Slip, Trip & Fall Attorneys
The law demands that all property owners and businesses provide a safe environment for people on their property. If an injury is caused by a defect or hazard on the property, there is a potential claim for the resulting damages, such as medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, etc. Retail store accidents like slipping on water on the floor or ice on a walkway are some of the most common types of slip and fall claims. Other cases involve falls in apartment buildings because a landing or staircase has been inadequately lit or there were no handrails. Whether the fall occurs on business or private property, there are insurance coverage issues that must be taken into account.
What Should You Do After a Slip or Trip & Fall?
- If you are injured on someone’s property, seek immediate medical attention.
- As soon as possible, have photographs taken of the scene of the injury. The property could be fixed quickly, resulting in the disappearance of evidence needed to prove your claim.
- Contact an attorney as soon as possible, because different statutes of limitation apply in different states. In some cases, you have as little as 90 days to notify the party of a claim. If you fail to give proper and timely notice of an injury, you may lose your right to be compensated for your injuries.
