A fall can have serious repercussions – particularly for the elderly.
It is a common misconception that people would not be injured if only they “looked where they were going.” Because of this, liability in cases of falls is often hotly contested.
If you have been injured in a fall and have suffered a serious injury as a consequence, you need to review the matter with a lawyer immediately. Identifying the cause of the fall, securing evidence and in the cases of municipalities ensuring that the very stringent notice requirements are met all mean that you have not time to delay.
No matter what the cause, it is worthwhile to review the case with a lawyer immediately. You may have as little as 7 days from the date of the injury to take legal steps or otherwise you may be prevented from making a claim.
If you or a loved one has been injured, call us. There is no charge for an initial interview.
