1. Seek Medical Care First
If you get injured on someone else’s property, it’s important to seek medical attention immediately. Even if you don’t feel any severe injuries, some injuries can cause immediate symptoms.
2. Find out Why You Are Hurt
Next, you need to determine why you were hurt. There could be many reasons why you got injured on someone else’s property. For instance, a similar situation could happen with loose boards on a deck.
3. Keep a Record of Everything Along the Way
Document everything as you go through the process. After seeing a doctor, make sure to request a copy of all your medical records. Also, keep track of how much you spend and collect all bills that you receive.
4. Make Sure You Had a Legal Reason to Visit the Property
Before proceeding, make sure that you have a valid legal reason to enter the property. If the business was open, you have every right to enter and buy a product or service.
