Sidewalk accidents are frightening and often happen suddenly in the form of trips or slips and falls. In many cases, these accidents are caused by unsafe property conditions and not careless pedestrians. Read on and reach out to our knowledgeable St. Mary’s County sidewalk accident lawyer to learn more about sidewalk accidents and how our legal team can help if you’ve sustained a serious injury in one. Here are some of the questions you may have:
How do I know if I can sue after being hurt in a sidewalk accident?
The most important factor when determining whether someone has a valid premises liability claim is whether they can prove they were hurt because of unsafe property conditions. For example, if you can prove that you slipped and fell on an icy sidewalk after the weather conditions should have been cleared away but weren’t, you will most likely have a valid premises liability claim. If you can, you should try to document how your accident happened by taking pictures, getting witness contact info, calling the police/emergency services, and collecting all medical documentation pertaining to your injuries. Our firm can then use this evidence to prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence and hopefully obtain the compensation you deserve and need to get back on your feet again.
What damages can I recover in a personal injury claim?
Typically, there are two types of damages you can recover in a personal injury claim, and they are economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages deal with the monetary cost of an accident, such as the cost of medical treatment. Non-economic damages deal with the non-monetary cost of an accident, such as pain and suffering or the loss of enjoyment of life caused by your accident and injuries. Our firm is here to help you recover the maximum compensation to minimize your suffering and help you get back on your feet again.
