Q: Should I fill out an incident report if I fall at the grocery store?
A: No matter if you fall at the grocery store, on the stairs at your apartment complex, or anywhere else, you should always immediately report the incident. If you fall at the grocery store, you should immediately report your fall to the store manager. Inform him or her that you want to make an incident report of the fall. You want to make sure that the incident date and location are properly documented, as well as any injuries you are suffering at the time of the fall.
Q: I was visiting someone’s home, and I was sitting on their deck. The deck fell, and I was injured. Do I have a case?
A: Homeowners have a duty to their guests to properly maintain their property and/or warn their guests of any potential dangers existing on their property of which they are aware. Additionally, there are certain structural requirements that must be followed for certain features on homes. If you have fallen as a result of a fallen deck, contact a skilled personal injury attorney, to discuss your rights.
Q: I recently fell in a store. The insurance company for the store contacted me to discuss the fall. Should I speak with the insurance company?
