What should I do if I get injured on another person’s property?

Whenever you go to another person’s property, whether it be a friend’s house or to the supermarket, you assume you will walk out in the same condition you walked in. Unfortunately, freak accidents happen all the time where someone goes to a place that everyone presumes is safe and leaves in an ambulance. The reality is that anything can happen and injuries can happen to anyone.

Residential Accidents

If you are injured at someone else’s home or on their property because there was an unsafe condition, the property owner can be held responsible. Property owners have the responsibility to keep their premises safe from any dangers and fix any dangers that make themselves present in a reasonable time. If injured in an accident on someone else’s residential property, you should notify the property owner, get their information, and take pictures of the danger that caused you to become injured before leaving the property.

Retail Accidents

If you are injured in a retail store such as a supermarket, it is important that you notify the store management as soon as possible. Like any other accident, take pictures of the dangers that caused your injury. If you fail to notify the store’s management, you will face added obstacles if you choose to bring a personal injury lawsuit against the store.
