How 1.800.HURT.511 can help after your slip and fall accident!

Since slip and fall accidents are very common in all boroughs of New York Brooklyn, NY, it is important to know how to act when they occur. While at the scene of the accident, it is important to take all the proper steps to ensure the validity of your claim. The following is summary of what not to do after a slip and fall injury:

Don’t leave the scene without speaking with a manager. Many people are embarrassed or afraid after a slip and fall and do not notify a manager. However, it is important to get the managers attention and let them know about the hazard right away.

Don’t admit fault. Apologizing for the incident or admitting fault in any way can raise concerns regarding liability and impair a claim.

Don’t neglect the witnesses. Don’t feel embarrassed or hesitate to speak with witnesses. Obtain contact information from as many people on the scene as possible. Witnesses can help your claim and may volunteer information such as variable vantage points or a possibility of prior incident in the location in question.

Don’t forget to take photos and document as visual evidence. These details will be pertinent to your claim. Just after the incident, you will need to continue to be you own advocate so remember:

  • Don’t ignore any pain or discomfort after a slip and fall accident. Whether the pain is moderate or severe, it is important to seek out medical attention to have your injuries assessed.
  • Don’t skip your doctor’s appointments. Insurance companies pay close attention to your actions directly following an accident. Their goal is to prove that you are not badly injured or affected and to lower your claim. Staying on top of appointments will go a long way in validating your case.

Don’t offer the insurance companies a statement, since they will do their utmost to lower settlement amount, including using anything you say against you.

Don’t sign any paperwork or other forms given or sent to you from the insurance company.

Don’t accept settlements without seeking a legal consult from a qualified slip and fall attorney. Taking a settlement from an insurance company would dramatically reduce claim compensation, since the insurance companies tend to retain as much money as they can. If you or a loved one are injured in a slip and fall accident, contact us at 1-800-HURT-511.

I was an UBER passenger and the car got rear-ended by a utility van. I called 1-800-HURT-511 since a friend dealt with them before and I was glad I did. My attorney was extremely professional and aggressive when necessary. He was transparent from the start and didn’t complicate things unnecessarily.

Serious team effort from the entire staff to get my work injury case resolved quickly. They built a strong case and kept me in the loop for the duration. This team also delivered on two previous occasions and did it in a very cost-effective way. A faithful customer for life thank you!

I highly recommend HURT-511! When the insurance companies turned me away after a scary scooter accident that nearly killed me, a lawyer at HURT-511 stayed and fought for me and recovered the entire policy! Their staff is well-informed and always available to answer my questions. They treated me like one of their own and I made the right decision to stick with them. Thank you so much!
