When You’re Injured in a Slip and Fall, You Must Know Your Options
Most people who slip and fall on a sidewalk will wonder if they can sue. But very few people know the specifics in Janesville or Wisconsin when it comes to slip and fall injury law. That’s why you need a personal injury lawyer seasoned in this kind of thing.
Many people don’t sue because they don’t know these laws. Or they don’t think their injuries are severe enough. This is often a mistake.
If you slip and fall because of a business not taking care of their sidewalk or premises, you may very well have an opportunity to sue the owners.
It’s true that premises liability law in Wisconsin is a complex area. The nature and type of property you were injured on is the driving force in determining which Wisconsin law applies.
However, never assume you don’t have a case. Particularly if you’re dealing with injuries such as:
What to Do If You Slip and Fall
- See a Doctor:
Make sure you know the full extend of your injuries and get treated for them. Your health is ALWAYS the main concern.
- Keep records:
Keep a record of when your doctor/hospital visits occurred and any medications you were prescribed for the pain or swelling. It’s also important to keep all your receipts.
Also keep track of any time you’ve had to miss work because of your injuries or to go the hospital or clinic.
- Speak with a personal injury attorney:
You need to speak to someone who understands the injury laws in Wisconsin and has a proven history of fighting for people like you and a track record of winning these cases.
Are you experiencing neck and back pain after your slip & fall accident?
DO NOT ignore it. You are experiencing whiplash, and you’re entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering.
Whiplash from negligence is a serious condition, and requires medical expertise to treat—and that doesn’t come cheap. Don’t foot the bill for a business’ mistake. Take action, make a claim and get the settlement you need to get your life back on track.
