I fell at a relative’s house. should I file a claim against them?

This is a common question. People fall and get hurt on a friend or relative’s property and feel bad about filing a claim or lawsuit. In the end, you have to do what is best for your situation.

Slip and fall injuries can cost a lot of money when it comes to medical expenses and long-term care. Even if your friend or relative offers to cover your emergency medical care out-of-pocket, that may not be the last time you need care. What about lost income if you miss work?

When you file a claim or personal injury lawsuit, you are doing so against their homeowner’s insurance, not them. Never feel bad for doing what is best for your health.

Can I still file a personal injury lawsuit if I didn’t seek medical attention?

If you did not seek medical care at all, you are probably not going to be successful in a slip and fall case. However, if you think your injuries are from a slip and fall incident, and it has been less than two years since the incident took place, you may still have a chance to file a claim. You need to seek medical assistance immediately and then get on the phone with a Cleveland slip and fall lawyer.

It is always a good idea to seek medical attention immediately after a slip and fall incident, even if you do not feel any pain. The full extent of some injuries is often not known for hours, days, or weeks after a slip and fall incident happens.

I feel stupid for falling, so why would I file a lawsuit?

We always hear from people who say they are embarrassed for falling in the first place. This shouldn’t be the case – many slip and fall incidents are the faults of property owners and their employees.

  • The National Floor Safety Institute says that slip and fall incidents caused around one million people to seek treatment in hospitals each year.

Some of the common causes of these incidents include:

  • Spills of food and drinks on the floor
  • Electrical cords and other wires on the floor
  • Defects in the pavement
  • Carpeting that is loose or torn
  • Inadequate lighting in an area
  • Wet floor signs being absent after an area has been mopped

None of these things are your fault. If you are injured by any of these causes, you need to seek help from a Cleveland slip and fall lawyer.

I wasn’t able to gather evidence from the scene. What should I do now?

The aftermath of a slip and fall incident can be chaotic, especially if you or a loved one are hurt. If you were unable to document the scene with photographs, let your attorney get into investigating the incident. There may be surveillance footage available that can be used in your case, and we may even find that a store employee will testify on your behalf. Remember, if you or a loved one are ever involved in a slip and fall accident, try to photograph the scene and any hazard that caused the incident. As soon as you leave, most evidence will disappear.
