What are some common mistakes people make during a slip and fall case?
Unfortunately, there are many common mistakes we see people make after they’ve been injured in a slip and fall in Orlando. One of the most important things to do if you’ve been injured in a slip and fall, if you’re able to or if you have someone with you that can, is to document the scene immediately. Take photographs of what caused you to fall, what caused you to slip, because oftentimes that evidence will disappear quickly, and will be disputed later on, and there’s nothing better than having photographs at the exact time of the incident.
Another very common mistake we see people make is failing to seek medical attention right away. It’s very important to seek medical attention right away after a slip and fall so that your injuries can be documented immediately, and also so you can have peace of mind and know the extent of your injuries and what’s going on. Also, if the case is needed to be litigated later, immediate medical attention helps document your injuries and meet the burden of proof.
Another common mistake we see people make is to fill out an incident report and write things in that incident report that will hurt them later. Sometimes it’s a great idea to give an incident report but be careful of what you write or put in there so that it can’t be used against you later. Another very common mistake we see people make is hiring the wrong lawyer. Slip and falls are tough cases in the state of Florida, and there’s a lot of law that applies to them. If you don’t hire a lawyer that knows about those specific statutes, knows about that law, it can be the difference in recovering money or getting nothing.
