a representative from Flanagan and Associates. We will work to provide

aggressive and zealous representation that you deserve, as we seek to obtain money damages in your case. Our

It is important for you to know that it can be difficult to prove liability
in a slip and fall case and that there are essentially four elements that
you must prove in order to be eligible to collect damages:
- You were on the property legally, as an invitee to another individual's
property you are owed a duty of care and a violation of this duty that
results in your injuries could allow you to collect damages.
- The owner knew, or should have known, about the hazard.
- The owner failed to remove the obstacle, clean the slippery surface or
failed to provide adequate warning of the danger, thereby acting negligently.
- You were injured because of a lack of warning and any other reasonable
individual would have been injured in the same way.
What should I do after my accident?
To make sure that you are in the best position to receive compensation
for your injury, there are a few steps that you should take. First, make
sure that your physical health is fully checked out by a trained medical
professional. Injuries can often go unnoticed until days or weeks later.
A doctor can take the appropriate tests to see if there are any hidden
injuries and give the appropriate treatment for them.
Next, you should take pictures of the scene of the accident, and note the
details of the surface or object that caused your fall. If you are unable
to do this, then ask a friend or family member to go in your place. Owners
or the employees of a business
may try to cover up the accident, so you should try to do this as soon
as possible after the accident. If there were any witnesses, then it would be wise
to get their contact info, in case you need a statement from them. You
should also report the accident to the owner or manager of the premises
in which you had your accident.
After taking these steps, then you should get in touch with a Quincy slip
and fall attorney from our firm before doing anything else. Both the owners
and their insurance companies may try to get you to make statements saying
that you were at fault, so it is important to talk to our firm before
making any further actions. Our attorneys can help you draft a statement
to the insurance companies and pursue settlement or litigation with the
person who caused your fall.
