After a slip-and-fall injury in a parking lot, grocery store, apartment complex or mall, you may be able to collect compensation from the property owner by way of a premises liability injury claim or lawsuit. There may be other options for obtaining compensation, as well. Was another guest on the property involved? That person's auto insurance policy and/or your own auto insurance policy or homeowners insurance policy may cover costs of your injuries.
However, you should not attempt to solve the problem of where compensation will come from before contacting an attorney. If you have been seriously injured, you are no doubt facing expenses and losses such as medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Perhaps your loved one was killed in an assault in a strip mall parking lot or suffered injuries at a recreational facility. Perhaps you were struck by falling merchandise in a big box discount store — or your family member was killed by a forklift in a lumberyard. Whatever the premises, the accident or the injuries, talking to a lawyer is as important to your recovery as talking to a doctor about how your injuries may be treated and heal.
The first order of business after a slip, trip or fall injury is to obtain the best medical care available and/or to make plans for a funeral. At the same time, however, you will improve your chances of recovering sufficient compensation if you engage a personal injury or wrongful death lawyer promptly.
