Injured at a Place of Business

What Should I Do if I am Injured at a Place of Business?

All businesses and landowners are required to make sure they keep you safe while on their property. In fact, it is their responsibility to let you know about wet floors, hazards in parking lots, and other possible dangers at their location. However, even with some precautions, injurious incidents happen. 

Here are some types of injurious incidents that companies may be liable for if you get hurt on their property. 

  • Falls from uneven or slippery surfaces

  • Injuries from falling objects

  • Sickness from improperly prepared foods

  • Cuts and abrasions from sharp objects like counters, endcaps, pins, or showcases

  • Injuries from neglected and unsafe parking lots

If you or a loved one are injured at a business or on the property of another as a result of their negligent acts or omissions, you deserve fair compensation for your injuries and damages. In order to protect yourself or your loved one, it is also very important that you get as much evidence of actionable negligence as is possible.

Steps To Take If You’ve Been Injured At A Business or Property of Another:

In order to prove that the business was at fault, there are also a couple of other items you will need. 

    • Share why you were at the business. Were you purchasing something or using a service? Or did you have an invitation to be on the property?

    • Learn what caused the injury, but be able to explain clearly how you did not know about the danger or hazard before the injurious incident occurred. For example, if you do not know what was on the floor that caused you to slip and fall, before you leave that area, if you are able, find out.
