  • Slip and Fall Injuries

    January 13, 2021

    It is unfortunate, but happens quite often: many of us fall, trip, slip, and suffers from an unexpected accident. And even more sadly, most of the time, it isn’t our fault. I’m Priashna Singh, and I can tell you that if you have suffered from such a slip and fall, you’re not alone. Slips and falls are more common than you may imagine; they can happen to anyone and anywhere. Especially during the winter season, the maximum number of slip and fall cases are recorded in Canada’s hospitals. Now what’s even more important is to know what the next steps should be. I am here to inform you about everything you need to know if you face a personal injury, especially when the accident is not your fault. 

    Premises Liability 

    The law states that parking lots, homes, buildings, walkways, etc., must be maintained for everyone to travel safely. This responsibility is termed as premises liability. 

    The premises liability allows you to be entitled to compensation if you face serious injury after tripping or falling on someone else’s property due to their negligence. You can acquire compensation over medical bills and even leave from work. I can tell you that a slip and fall compensation or insurance can take away a lot of the suffering from my experience. 

    Steps to follow after a slip and fall accident

    I sympathize with everyone who had to go through the pain of personal injury. I understand that it is not just the pain that causes trouble, but with the accident comes along many other headaches like how are you going to manage the medical bills, how will you handle work, and you may even feel that the injury is controlling what you do. But not anymore, by remembering the following steps, you can make the situation much better and rather have control over the pain and suffering. 

    I also assure you that these steps will help you build a strong legal case.

    1. Contact a Doctor: Your health should be your number one priority. Following an accident, your first instinct should be seeking medical help. You must contact a doctor so they can examine your injury properly. This way, you also have documents and medical records, and crucial pieces of evidence. The severity of your injury will also be a deciding factor when you seek compensation. 
    2. Report your accident: Wherever the accident happens, make sure to report it to the concerned person. For instance, if you trip and fall on a sidewalk in a store, report it to the landlord, owner, or manager. Get the details of the incident, like time, place, location, etc., in writing. Ask the manager or the owner to write a report and give you a copy of it. 
    3. Document: You have to document every important piece of information. Even the smallest things can support your case. Collect the phone numbers, addresses, email addresses of every witness you can. Record their statements as well, if possible. Their statements will help build your case stronger when you seek a legal claim. Click photographs of the place where you feel. Make sure to photograph the cause, icy patches, or stairs. Store your clothes and shoes in proper storage as a shred of evidence. They may help in the future. 
    4. You don’t have to give statements: if you are asked for statements that you don’t feel comfortable answering, you don’t have to. You can limit your communication if the owner or manager asks you irrelevant questions. Refrain from posting about the incident or any information related to it on online platforms and social media. You don’t have to give any statements until you have an attorney by your side. You don’t have to place blame on others and neither take any on yourself. 
    5. Contact your attorney: The only person to provide you with the best advice is an experienced attorney. Most of the slip and fall cases are complicated to prove. It is not easy to present a strong case, and for that, you need the best and the most experienced attorney by your side. As the head of the Singh Barristers, I can assure you that we provide the most knowledgeable, experienced attorneys with a great track record of successful cases. 

    An experienced attorney like ours will know that the first step is to get the insurance company and the defendant’s attention. Every case of slip and fall is different, and the right attorney will know what to do and how to do the right thing at the right moment. I cannot stress more how crucial the company of an attorney during these times is. The attorneys at Singh Barristers know how things work and will you the legal assistance that you need. 

    The Attorney’s Role

    To pursue a legal settlement or to reach a trial, an attorney will have to prove that the property owner’s negligence caused the accident. The attorney will prove that it was not your fault, and hence you deserve good compensation. In my experience, I can tell you that it is not an easy task, and not every attorney or lawyer can achieve it. Here at Singh Barristers, we make sure that we present the fairest case to get you the most compensation possible. 

    The attorney will then investigate how the accident happened and what caused it. There are so many questions and factors that the attorney has to jot down to build a good case. For instance, let’s say you fell down the stairs; now, the attorney will collect details. What kind of shoes, slippers, etc., were you wearing? Were you carrying anything? What were you carrying? Were the stairs slippery? And many other questions. 

    These questions will only define how the fall occurred. The next step of the attorney is to develop questions to establish how it may have been the owner’s responsibility. Did you trip on something on the stairs? Were the stairs too slippery to walk? Were you distracted while walking up or down the stairs? Did you try to reach for help? Were the height differences in each stair different, which caused you to miss or trip over one? I have talked about everything you need to know if you ever face a personal injury. Starting from what you should do to what an attorney will do to help you. We know that actions speak louder than words, and that is what the Singh Barristers believe in. Our attorney will bolster your position, understand how your case is different, and what it needs. Do the right thing for your family and yourself and reach out to the best attorneys. A step towards helping yourself is allowing others to help you. And the experienced attorneys at Singh Barristers are always present to provide you with the best help.
