Patrons who slip and fall due to business negligence have rights

Sometimes, business owners in Kentucky and elsewhere fail to take proper care of their properties. As a result, their patrons may unexpectedly slip and fall, which can lead to serious physical injuries. Here are some tips for protecting oneself from a financial and legal standpoint in the event of a slip-and-fall accident.

For starters, as soon as the accident happens, the injury victim may want to make a report of this accident as soon as possible. In the event that the victim chooses to seek compensation for his or her injuries in civil court, an accident report may help to establish his or her claim's legitimacy. A report is especially invaluable if no witness was present at the time of the accident.

In addition, the injured party would be wise to pursue medical attention as soon as possible. Medical reports may help to strengthen his or her claim documentation. These reports should ideally include all evaluations, care plans, research and lab outcomes associated with the individual's accident-related injury.

Finally, it is essential that individuals who slip and fall on dangerous property and are injured as a result seek the assistance of an attorney. An attorney can help them to pursue the full amount of damages to which they are entitled in light of the circumstances surrounding their accidents. Financial damages in a successfully litigated premises liability claim cannot undo the events leading to a slip-and-fall accident in Kentucky. However, they may help the injured party to more easily move forward from the potentially life-altering accident.
