What You Need to Know When You Have Been Hurt on Someone Else’s Property

Q: What are the most important steps to take immediately after I suffer an injury on someone else’s property?

A: Here’s a checklist to follow:

  • Retain a lawyer as soon as possible
  • Seek medical attention immediately — Make certain you tell your treating physician about everything that seems out of the ordinary, and verify that their observations/diagnoses are documented in writing.
  • Get contact information from all potential witnesses — Name, phone number, e-mail address, street address
  • Take pictures of the scene of your accident, as well as any injuries you suffered
  • Document everything — Make notes of all conversations you have with anyone about the accident, keep a log of all expenses incurred as a result of the accident and write down everything you can remember about the accident

Q: What should I expect from my insurance company?

A: Insurance companies are in business to make money, and the way they maximize profits is by minimizing payouts on claims. You can expect that your insurance company will have an adjuster contact you and offer you what may seem like a significant amount of money to settle your claim. Don’t accept the check, and don’t sign anything given to you by your insurer until you have retained legal counsel. Once you’ve hired a lawyer, you should instruct your insurance company to deal directly with your legal counsel.

Q: What types of losses may be recovered in a premises liability claim?

A: Generally, damages (the amount you are entitled to recover for your losses) are divided between economic and noneconomic losses. Economic losses include lost wages, medical expenses and prescription costs. Noneconomic damages cover pain and suffering, mental anguish and loss of enjoyment of life.

Many people have the idea that when we file a lawsuit, we are suing the person. We are not. We are suing the insurance company that the person has been paying to protect them against a loss like this. The insurance company that this person has been paying for quite some time.
