WHAT TO DO IF YOU HAVE BEEN INJURED

Dangerous conditions on someone else’s property cause injuries unexpectedly and sometimes tragically.

  1. First, seek medical attention. Tell the doctor how the injuryoccurred and every part of you which was injured.
  2. Second, take photos of the location, the dangerous condition,the spill on the floor, the loose object, or whatever caused the injury.Keep the receipt evidencing that you were at that location on thatparticular day. Also take photos of your injuries.
  3. Third, cooperate with the incident report with the propertyowner. If there is a business, insist that the manager take an injuryreport. Business owners often claim that no one reported an injury.
  4. Fourth, get the contact information of anyone who was awitness.
  5. Fifth, contact a premises liability attorney immediately, suchas Orloff & Associates. We need to put the property owner on noticeto preserve evidence such as video feeds. Preparing a case early oftenmakes the difference for a great recovery.

Do not try to handle the claim yourself. Anything you say can and will be used against you. Insurance companies are trained experts at getting you to say something against your own interest, to put words in your mouth and then manipulate you into believing that you have no case or that it was your fault. A hazard on their Property caused you to suffer an accident. GET THE COMPENSATION YOU DESERVE.
