Have you been injured in a slip-and-fall accident?
A slip and fall may sound like a minor accident. Losing your footing on a slippery surface, however, can cause severe injury, particularly for older individuals. If you fall victim to such an accident, you could find yourself facing costly medical bills and an inability to work.
The attorneys at Hunter & Everage can help you through this challenging situation. We boast an extensive background in aiding Charlotte and Richmond individuals as they seek compensation after a slip and fall due to a property or business owner’s negligence.
What to do after an accident
A routine errand can take a painful turn when you suffer from a slip and fall. If you happen to experience such an accident at a business or commercial property, you need to act quickly to protect your best interests. After a slip and fall, you should:
- Seek medical treatment immediately. Getting the care you need is important for your health, but it also begins the process of documenting your injury.
- Document the scene of the accident. Taking photos of where you fell can help bolster your claim.
- Talk to any witnesses at the scene. If others witnessed your accident, it can prove helpful to get their contact information.
- Consult with an attorney. Filing a slip-and-fall personal injury claim can be a complex process. By consulting with an experienced attorney, you can better position yourself for a positive outcome.
Suffering a personal injury can be a disorienting experience. By taking prompt action in the aftermath of your accident, you can strengthen your claim to seek maximum compensation.
Our firm will fight for you
An insurance company is a business first and foremost. A property or business owner’s insurer has an interest in paying you as little as possible. These companies often have significant legal resources, and it is not advisable to confront them on your own.
The attorneys at Hunter & Everage are prepared to fight for you. We have more than 35 years of combined legal experience, and we can craft an effective legal strategy for your claim. Do not rush to accept a lowball settlement offer – seek what you truly deserve.
