Keep Your Wits About You!
Brampton slip and fall injury lawyer Singh Barristers know from experience that people injured in slip and fall accidents often feel confused, bewildered and “zoned out.”
Even if the accident was a minor one, how you handle it and the aftermath of the accident can have a huge impact on future events.
Many of us presume that our injuries are minor. We avoid reporting the accident and neglect visiting a doctor for a general check-up afterwards.
These are two crucial factors that can decide the fate of an insurance claim: Negligence and Liability.
If your injuries turn out to be more serious at a later stage, you will find it difficult to establish that you were injured in that particular accident or even the fact that you were injured at all!
It’s wise to contact the nearest personal injury lawyer in Brampton without delay if you or a dear one has been injured in a slip and fall accident.
