What to Do After Getting Injured in Someone Else’s Legal Property

Here are some basic steps for a premise liability accident for yourself or others:

  1. Seek immediate medical attention after the incident; you may have difficulty proving that any injuries you’ve suffered–and for which you are demanding compensation–are related to the accident on another’s property. Medical treatment improves your chances of a better recovery and can serve as invaluable evidence in a premises liability claim.
  2. Notify the property owner of the incident and the injuries you have sustained as soon as possible.
  3. File a written report with the property owner, manager, supervisor, etc., and ask for a copy of this report.
  4. Gather relevant evidence at the scene when an injury occurs, if possible. Include pictures of the dangerous condition, names of any eyewitnesses, and a description of what you did when the incident occurred.
  5. Contact a lawyer. Working with a premises liability attorney can improve your chances of recovering the settlement amount you deserve. As soon as you call Arash Law and the team led by Arash Khorsandi, Esq., we will begin building your claim, working with interested parties, calculating your damages, and negotiating your settlement.


Premise Liability Injury Statistics

Premises liability claims, often involving slip-and-fall accidents, hold property owners responsible for inadequate maintenance. According to the National Floor Safety Institute, Falls account for over 8 million emergency room visits, making them the leading cause of such visits.

Slip-and-fall accidents can cause severe injuries and income loss, and fractures are common. They significantly cause workers’ compensation claims and mainly affect older individuals.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that neglected floors and flooring materials contribute significantly to slip-and-fall incidents, causing over 2 million injuries annually. To hold property owners accountable for their negligence, seeking proper compensation for premises liability claims is crucial.
