Most people do not have notice that a slip and fall accident is about to occur. This kind of accident can happen anywhere and at anytime. In many cases, people are not seriously injured when they slip and fall, but other times the injuries can be severe. Often, an accident is simply an accident and could not have been prevented. However, other times negligence plays a big role in falling or slipping on another person’s property.
When negligence does play a role, Ontario residents may be able to pursue damages for the injuries incurred due to a slip and fall accident. At the Chera Law Office, we staff lawyers who have experience litigating on behalf of slip and fall victims. Our lawyers understand what it takes to be successful in pursuing a personal injury claim. Some of the ways we help our clients include gathering evidence to support the claim and requesting medical records that reveal the nature and extent of the injuries suffered in a slip and fall.
The right timing is a critical element of a successful case involving slip and fall accidents. If you wait too long, crucial evidence might disappear from the accident scene. More importantly, the responsible party might have time to make repairs or otherwise render your efforts futile. Seek medical attention right away following an injury, but make your next stop a personal injury lawyer you can trust.
