Question:

What mistakes should I avoid after a slip and fall injury in Augusta?

Answer:

Common Mistakes After a Slip and Fall InjuryI met with a lady last week who was seriously injured in a slip and fall case in a grocery store in Martinez, Georgia. As I was talking to her about her case, I learned of some mistakes that she had already made in the case. Thankfully, I was able to rectify most of the mistakes my client had made, but I’m hoping that by reading this you will not make the same mistakes.

One of the mistakes that my client had made was she didn’t report the fall to the management until a week after the fall. She was embarrassed and was hoping that her problems would go away, but they didn’t. She had also given a statement to an insurance adjuster. Many times, that can be a problem because insurance adjusters are asking questions and trying to get information that could be harmful to a client’s case. She also waited a couple weeks to go to the doctor, which can be harmful to a case as well. Lastly, she waited over a month to consult with a lawyer.

I was able to rectify most of her problems, but hopefully those reading this will not make the same mistakes. If you have a slip and fall case, please give us a call. We’d be happy to talk with you.
