Attractive nuisances are only one factor to consider

| Jul 20, 2017 | Premises Liability

We recently discussed some of the points of an attractive nuisance and what the concept means when there is an injury due to one. It is imperative that you consider this concept if your child is injured on another person’s property, but it isn’t the only thing that you need to consider.

When it comes to premises liability cases, there are many factors that can come into the picture. You have to think about what the property owner could have done to prevent the accident from occurring. In the case of a grocery store slip-and-fall, cleaning the spill promptly or placing signage to warn patrons could have prevented the accident.

It isn’t always easy to figure out what went wrong or how it could be corrected. This is a big component in some cases, so make sure pay close attention to the scene after the accident. Snap a few pictures if you are able to do so. This might help you to thwart claims that there was proper signage or that there wasn’t a spill on the floor.

Of course, you can’t always get pictures. This is especially true if the injury you suffered was severe. In that case, we can still work to build up your case by reviewing the information that we do have available.

Seeking medical care has to be a priority after you suffer an injury in a slip-and-fall accident. Once you do this, we can meet with you to help you learn about the options that you have to seek compensation, as well as what the process will entail.
