A lot of times we get clients who have sustained an injury while on someone else’s property, whether it’s making a delivery, whether it’s making a repair, whether it’s just visiting a friend in the event that an incident happens on someone else’s property, the most important thing you can do is determine what it is that caused you to fall, be that a pothole, be that a piece of broken concrete, that a tree stump that was raised and not maintained by the homeowner.
The most important thing that you can do is make sure, if not that day, shortly thereafter, that you’re able to actually take a photograph of or otherwise document what it is that exactly caused your fall. And this is important because a homeowner is naturally going to look to repair a defect. And once they repair the defect, that ability to show exactly what it is that caused you to fall will no longer be present.
