What To Do If Injured on Someone Else's Property

A property owner has the responsibility to maintain a reasonably safe environment on their grounds. Unfortunately, this is not always the case and premises liability cases can arise from injuries caused by unsafe conditions.

There are countless types of accidents that can happen due to the negligence of a property owner including slip & fall accidents, electrocutions, elevator accidents, burn injuries, construction accidents and many more. If you are injured on another person's property is it crucial to take the necessary precautions to preserve evidence.

Premises liability cases involve proving the fault of the property owner and evidence is necessary to receive the compensation that you deserve. The ways in which you can preserve proof of negligence include:

  • Taking pictures: Pictures of a substance that caused a fall or of faulty grounds leading to a trip & fall. Pictures of faulty equipment on a construction site or the area in which chemicals were exposed.
  • Filing a report to the property owner: Filing a report will allow your story to be documented so that you do not forget details later.
  • Seeking medical attention: In order to have proof of your injuries it is important to go to a doctor and receive a medical report of the injuries you suffered.
  • Preserving the clothes you were wearing: If you were injured in a slip and fall or chemical exposure accident, the substance or chemical may be on your clothing so store the clothes in a safe place and do not wash them.
