You may not know for sure whether you have a winnable slip and fall case until you speak with an experienced and knowledgeable North Carolina personal injury, but you must be able to answer the following questions on your own:
Do you know where you fell?
You need to know where the fall and injuries took place in order for an attorney to pursue recovery.
Were you aware of the hazardous condition before you fell?
Being aware of risks will not automatically negate your claim, but the property owner may try to use that information against you.
Did you sustain injuries from the fall?
In order to seek compensation, you must show that you suffered serious injuries that required medical care.
Have you received a medical diagnosis for your injuries?
If you have not seen a doctor yet, consult with one right away in order to have your injuries diagnosed and what treatment will be needed.
