Let the hardworking legal professionals at Cavanaugh & Thickens handle the insurance companies so that you can focus on healing.
Slip & Fall Injury Compensation
In the days,
weeks and months following an injury from a slip and fall, there are certain
things that you should avoid doing. For example, here are some common mistakes
people make after a slip and fall incident:
Ignoring injuries: It’s crucial that you seek medical care as soon as possible and keep all medical documents.
Waiting to contact an attorney: Contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. It is important to preserve key evidence like incident reports, surveillance video, and other store documents.
Giving a recorded statement: Avoid talking to insurance representatives or the property owner without your attorney present. While insurance adjusters may seem helpful, their job is to deny or minimize your claim – ours is to help you.
Making assumptions: The insurance company might make a low-ball offer to settle the case quickly. Don’t assume they are out to give you a fair settlement or have your best interest in mind.
Being careless with information: Keep everything involved with your case. Take photos, write down witness names and contact information, and keep all medical documentation.
Posting on social media: Don’t make posts about your injuries online. It is easy for innocent statements to be taken out of context weeks or months down the road.
