Always report all accidents immediately and try to take pictures of the area where the fall or accident occurred. If you are injured at someone's place of business or at someone's home, the owner of the property may be responsible for your injuries and any medical expenses and lost wages you incur. Premises liability cases can be very complex and difficult – just because you are injured on someone's property does not mean the owner is always responsible. Negligence has to be established first. Plus, though a property owner may ultimately be responsible for your medical expenses and lost wages, the owner has no obligation to pay your expenses as they are incurred.
Remember to take photos immediately (using your camera or even your cell phone). Getting good documentation at the time of the incident may make a difference should you have a legal claim.
