What should I do when a business owner told me I should have seen the hazard that caused my slip and fall accident?
Business owners will often say and do anything to limit their liability in slip and fall accidents. They don’t want to have to pay out any money or file a claim with their insurance carrier due for fear of a rate increase. As a result, some business owners may deny the hazardous condition or blame the victim for suffering a slip and fall injury on their property.
When a business owner acts this way, you need to make sure you do everything you can to protect yourself, such as:
- Take pictures of the hazardous condition before it gets repaired.
- Ask any witnesses for their contact information.
- Seek medical treatment immediately.
- Talk with a slip and fall injury lawyer.
Just because the business owner is blaming you for your slip and fall injury, doesn’t mean he or she is correct.
