Nassau County Slip and Fall Attorneys
Slip, trip, and fall accidents may sound innocuous enough, but when you suffer an injury in a fall because someone was negligent, you may feel frustrated and overwhelmed. Slip, trip, and fall accidents can happen anywhere and can have serious consequences. From shattered kneecaps to broken hips, a fall can be devastating and can even lead to death. The Nassau County slip and fall attorneys at Rosenberg and Gluck, LLP understand the seriousness of these types of injuries and are here to help.
While most slip, trip, and fall incidents are truly unintentional accidents, stores, public spaces, and private property owners are responsible for providing a reasonable degree of safety for visitors. Failing to put a wet floor sign out after mopping, leaving a paint can in the center of an aisle, or not attending to broken railings, can all be regarded as negligence in a case.
If a Nassau County store owner or other responsible party is aware of a hazard and does not take reasonable measures to correct the problem, he or she could be found responsible for a victim’s injuries. Proving negligence is the number one priority in slip, trip, and fall cases.
What to Do After an Accident
If you have been injured in a slip, trip, and fall accident, you may initially think that the accident was your fault. Look around at the environment. If you suffered an injury and the cause of your accident was not your own inattention, you may be entitled to compensation. Our well-versed Nassau County slip and fall attorneys can help you secure adequate recoveries for your injury.
Smartphones have revolutionized the world of personal injury law. Take as many pictures as you can, if you are able. Photographic evidence is very powerful in personal injury claims and can highlight the cause of an accident without relying solely on witness accounts. Ask for bystanders’ information. Their accounts may be helpful if a claim goes to court.
Call for medical attention and have someone inform the manager on duty or property owner. The place of operation may need to file a report of the accident. Get copies of all medical records associated with the accident and make sure they reflect your injury properly. Take pictures of your injury, too, if possible.
Do not admit fault or talk freely about the accident until you consult a lawyer. Contact one of our qualified Nassau County personal injury attorneys who specialize in slip, trip, and fall accidents.
