        What are common mistakes people make if they have been injured in a slip and fall?


        We’ve worked on a lot of slip and fall cases, and we’ve seen a lot of the common mistakes people make when they have a slip and fall injury. The most common is that when people slip and fall on another person’s property or the property of a business, they don’t report their injury. There are different reasons for that. Sometimes, people are embarrassed. They just want to hop up and get in their car and leave, or they don’t think that they’re very injured initially, and so they will not report their injury to the property owner. That is a huge mistake. You absolutely want to make sure you get your injury reported right away while you’re still there at the property. You never want to leave and then have to come back later and report the injury.

        Another common mistake we see is people don’t go get the treatment that they need. They think that they’re going to get better. They are not sure who’s responsible for paying the medical bills, and so they won’t go to the doctor, but it is very important to get the treatment that you need, to see the doctor and make sure that you are on the road to recovery sooner rather than later as well as get your injuries documented in the medical records.

        Another common mistake that we see is that people will give a statement to the insurance carrier. The insurance carrier for the property owner will want to take a recorded statement soon, oftentimes even when you’re still maybe even at the hospital or on medication. It’s not a good idea to talk to the insurance carrier and let them take a recorded statement of you. You may think that you’ll be okay because you’re going to tell the truth, of course, but the insurance carrier will be looking for ways to delay or deny your case and will ask questions in a way that will help them do that. Make sure you have an attorney involved quickly who can help you with that process.

        Finally, a common mistake is people hire the wrong attorney. They go to an attorney that they have a relationship with based on something else this attorney has done for them in the past, but you really want to make sure that you find an attorney that has experience in handling these slip and fall injury cases and can take your case to trial if necessary and get the best recovery for you for your injury. If you have had a slip and fall injury in Kansas and have any questions about your case, give us a call. We’d be happy to talk to you about it.
