As a follow up to a previous blog in which I discussed several things you should do if you are injured on someone else’s property, here are a few things you should NOT do. First, avoid providing any statements to the property owner. Do not sign any statements or incident reports. Do not say anything that would imply fault on your part.
In many cases, following a premises liability accident, a claims adjuster will contact you to get more information about your injuries. Again, do not give a statement to anyone that contacts you. First, consult with a personal injury attorney that specializes in premises liability cases and will be able to advise you accordingly. Many adjusters are trained to try and persuade you to settle the claim immediately and sign a release, talk to a lawyer first.
