There are certain things that are helpful to do after a New York slip and fall accident. However, as New York slip and fall attorneys we recognize that you can't always do everything that is recommended after a slip and fall accident. Sometimes, your injuries were too serious, your attention was diverted, or you simply didn't know what you should do.
Don't worry. You still may be able to recover damages for your slip and fall injuries. However, it is even more important to contact a New York slip and fall lawyer as soon as possible.
For example, a New York slip and fall attorney may be able to help you if:
- You didn't take pictures or collect evidence at the accident scene. Your lawyer will investigate your case and may be able to collect evidence that is important to your case through legal discovery.
- You don't know who owns or manages the property where you were hurt. Your attorney can investigate and determine the owner of the property through government property records. Your lawyer may also determine who manages the property and whether the owner or manager was responsible for your injuries.
- Your medical record is unclear. If you delayed getting medical treatment or if you have a preexisting condition then a lawyer may be able to help you.
