Four Things to Avoid After Slipping and Falling

Four Things To Avoid After Slipping And Falling

Next to auto accidents, slip and fall accidents are the second leading cause of personal injury in the U.S. Nevertheless, many slip and fall victims damage their case by doing one or more of the following things:

1. Assuming the accident is their fault

Because slipping and falling can be interpreted as clumsiness, some victims wrongly assume that they fell on their own. When a building manager comes to their aid, they apologize and take responsibility for the fall. If you claim that a slip and fall is your fault, your words could be used against you if you decide to pursue a claim.

2. Waiting to see if they feel better

In order to avoid medical costs, some victims wait to see if they feel better before seeking medical attention – a decision that could cause some injuries to go unnoticed. Because injury cases are based on evidence of injuries, slip and fall victims should go to a hospital immediately after they fall to document any injuries.

3. Minimizing their injuries to a physician

When they minimize their injuries to a physician, slip and fall victims reduce their chance of being sufficiently compensated for injuries, especially those injuries that begin subtly and intensify over time, such as nerve and brain damage.

4. Accepting a quick settlement

Insurance companies offer injury victims lowball settlements to avoid paying the large settlements that Philadelphia personal injury lawyers could otherwise negotiate on victims’ behalf. Although the settlement amount can seem generous initially, it is often insufficient to even cover a victim’s medical expenses.
