Your Slip-And-Fall Accident May Have Been Caused By Property Owner Negligence
When you walk into a store, hotel or other public building, you should not have to anticipate dangerous conditions. Property owners and managers in Kentucky have a responsibility to keep their floors, stairs and walkways reasonably safe. Slips on slick surfaces or poorly maintained steps can not only surprise you but also lead to serious injuries.
If you have been seriously injured after slipping and falling on someone else’s property, you may be able to seek compensation by filing a premises liability claim.

Steps To Take After A Slip-And-Fall To Preserve Your Legal Options
Police reports are uncommon after slip-and-fall accidents. A store manager or property owner may make a record of the incident, but this is likely to be a biased account. Because of this, it is especially important for you to record what happened in as much detail as you can. If possible, take photos of where you fell, especially any spilled liquids, broken steps or other hazards.
If anyone saw what happened, try to obtain their contact information. It is also a good idea to write down what you remember happening as soon as possible. As with any serious injury, it is important to seek medical attention right away. Be sure to explain to your doctor in detail what caused your injury.
The final step is to reach out to an experienced attorney to discuss your legal options. Don’t wait too long, as the window of time (known as the statute of limitations) to file a claim is only one year after the incident.
