If you’ve been injured in an accident, most people know the first steps you need to take. Seeking medical attention is step number one, as your health is the most important. After that you want to report the incident to authorities and bring forth any witnesses to help you with your claim.
But what if there were no witnesses and you fell when you were by yourself? Do you still have a case and can bring a lawsuit to recover for your injuries? Yes, this is possible.
What we look at first is the accident scene to see if we can show physically how you were harmed. Is there actual damage to the sidewalk that can be seen and reported? Another avenue we may be able to take is to see if any other accidents and harm have been reported to the city or town who manages the sidewalk. If this area has been shown to cause other accidents and injuries, then your claim is going to be valid enough to hold up in a lawsuit.
