After you’ve received treatment for your injuries, it’s important to gather as many details about the scene of the accident as possible, such as:

  • Your location on the property
  • Obstructions or defects on the property, such as an unattended spill, unrepaired stairs or walkways, improperly stored items blocking your path, etc.
  • The presence or absence of warning signs
  • The nature and extent of your injuries
  • Names and statements from any witnesses who might have seen the accident
  • If possible, taking photographs of the accident scene and your injuries; a cell phone camera or other mobile device can be extremely helpful

Property owners are responsible for keeping their premises safe. If you were injured because of unsafe conditions on a neglected property, the personal injury attorneys at The Rubinstein Law Group can assess your case and help you build a premises liability claim against the property owner.
