Virginia Slip and Fall Claims Can Be Complicated
If you fall in a store or on a sidewalk, it may be difficult to prove that the owner of the property is at-fault. Filing a successful claim requires a thorough understanding of Virginia’s laws pertaining to contributory negligence. It is also critical to investigate the circumstances leading up to the accident and collecting evidence. A highly skilled Suffolk personal injury lawyer can provide the guidance you need at every step in this process.
If you are involved in an accident, always seek medical attention, even if you think your injuries are not serious. Complications may develop later and a doctor’s notes about your condition after a fall could build a strong claim. If you are able, take photos of the accident scene with your phone and capture any signs warning about dangerous conditions. Note if the area was slippery, poorly lit, or littered with debris. If there were any witnesses to your accident, gather their testimony. If you are able, report your injuries to the store manager or property owner before you leave. Then, contact East Coast Trial Lawyers to schedule an initial consultation about your case.
