Whether you have been injured in your apartment, rental home, place of business, doctors office, school, parking lot, sidewalk or any other place where accidents can occur, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your injuries and lost time from work, as well as reimbursement of your medical expenses if someone is at fault for the condition which caused your accident.
It is important to document the accident as soon as possible to ensure that a record is made of the event and the condition which caused the accident including, whenever possible, the taking of photographs (cell phone cameras are often very effective) and making of an accident report.
Once you have received medical attention, it is important to contact an experienced personal injury attorney before taking any action on your own or speaking with an insurance company. Prompt contact with an attorney is important since some types of accidents require notice be given to the defendant within 30 days of the occurrence and to ensure that any video footage which may exist is not taped over or erased.
These Types of Accidents Include but are not limited to:
