Notifying the Property Owner
Steps To Take When Notifying the Property Owner After a Slip and Fall Injury
In this educational legal video, Lisa A Poch, an experienced Hamburg injury attorney discusses the importance of notifying the property owner of your injuries after a slip and fall accident.
Oftentimes, clients want to know if a property owner must be notified before a claim can be brought against them. Although the answer to that question is yes, I would caution you to remember that, in many situations, it’s best not to notify the property owner right away. It’s more important to reach out to an attorney first so that they can hire an investigator, perhaps send someone out to the property to take pictures, get statements, and speak to other people who may have been injured by that same dangerous condition. If you notify the property owner before taking those steps, they may get rid of some evidence or repair the condition that caused you to fall, and you can’t recreate that condition. Once it’s gone, it’s gone. It’s important to reach out to counsel first and have them take the appropriate steps, including notifying the property owner.
If you are seriously injured from a slip and fall on someone else’s property, notifying the property owner of your injuries is an important first step.
