Premises liability covers a variety of accidents that occur on another person’s property. Slips and falls are some of the most common types of injuries that fall within this category of personal injury claims. Whether you fall because of a slippery surface, clutter, broken flooring, or inadequate lighting, if the owner is negligent, you should be able to recover compensation for your injuries. The first step is to consult with a Stockton premises liability attorney to discuss your claim. It is best to consult with an attorney as soon as possible because evidence can be lost or destroyed, especially in slip and fall cases where the evidence is the environment where the fall occurred (i.e. the condition of the floor, broken steps, spilled liquids, etc.). The owner will likely take steps immediately to correct the dangerous condition that caused your fall.
When you are injured in a car accident, slip and fall, defective product accident, or any other personal injury accident, an element of your claim is to prove you were injured. You must prove you suffered an injury and the accident directly caused the injury. If you cannot prove these elements, you cannot recover money for your claim. Therefore, your medical records become a very important component of your personal injury claim.
