  • What You Should Do After Slip and Fall Accident in Ottawa

    We all fall at one time or another but these mishaps generally leave us unscathed if not a little embarrassed. However, a slip and fall could have a lasting impact on your life. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that one out of five falls results in a serious injury, including head trauma or broken bones. Some injuries are obvious, but you could also suffer a soft tissue injury that can be difficult to diagnose.

    What happens if you are unable to work? Some injuries require long-term treatment that can be expensive. How will you be able to pay your bills? There can be many things to consider after an accident. At Howard Yegendorf & Associates, our dedicated team will work tirelessly to get the fair and equitable financial compensation you deserve after receiving injuries through no fault of your own.

    Seeking immediate medical attention is your first concern after you have been hurt. But after the initial trauma, it is important to remember that time is of the essence when filing a negligence claim. In Ontario, people must inform a property owner of their injuries is within 60 days. If you are injured on government property you have even less time.

    Gathering as much evidence as you can is vital in proving your case. You need to take photographs or video of the scene as soon as possible, especially if weather conditions played a part in your accident. Document what happened while it is still fresh in your mind. Look for possible witnesses. Even if they didn’t see you fall, they can provide details about conditions in the area. Ask them for a statement or their contact information. Document what you were wearing at the time, especially your shoes, which could be an important piece of evidence in your claim.

    Personal injury law can be complex so it is in your best interest to seek legal advice from a law firm that has extensive experience in slip and fall accidents. If you have been hurt due to someone else’s negligence, let us guide you through the claims process.
