Leesburg Florida slip and fall lawyer explains the 3 things that you should not do after an injury.

Nobody wants to be hurt in a Florida slip and fall accident. While the physical pain, emotional trauma and financial loss may be recoverable in a lawsuit, it would have been much simpler to avoid the whole thing.

As a Florida slip and fall lawyer who has seen significant injuries suffered by many of my clients, I want you to avoid a similar outcome. However, I know that no matter how you walk, slippery surfaces are dangerous and may lead to injuries. Hang on a moment and I'll explain What NOT TO DO after a Port St. Lucie Florida slip and fall accident.

If your injured in a slip and fall accident DO NOT:

  • Delay Medical Treatment. A delay in medical treatment may be suspicious to an insurance adjuster or jury. A defendant in a slip and fall case may use your delay in treatment as evidence that you were not injured and your injured was caused by something other than the incident.
  • Discard Evidence. Evidence such as pictures of the scene or pictures of your initial injuries may be critical to your later recovery. Accident scenes change over time and injuries heal, if they are not documented it may be difficult to explain to an insurance adjuster or jury.
  • Delay a Legal Consultation. The sooner that you consult a Port St. Lucie slip and fall attorney, the sooner you will learn of your legal rights in these types of cases.

If you have any questions about a Leesburg Florida slip and fall case you can always give me a call on my cell at (352) 267-9168 or fill out the internet consultation form.
