You were walking on the sidewalk, as you’ve done on many sidewalks many times before, when you suddenly fell hard. You may have suffered a significant injury to your arm or wrist, leg or ankle, head, back, neck, or other part of your body. What, if anything, will you be able to recover for this Warren County sidewalk accident, and what should you do next to protect yourself and your possible legal recovery?
Your Possible Recovery Depends on Many Different Factors
You may or may not be able to make a recovery for your accident injuries. Some of the factors that may influence your possible legal recovery include:
- Who owned and maintained the sidewalk where you were hurt. If it was government property, then it can be difficult to recover. However, if it was owned and/or maintained by an individual or business, then you may be able to recover for your slip-and-fall injuries if the owner knew or should have known about a dangerous defect that caused your injury.
- Whether the fall caused your injury. You may only recover if your injuries occurred because of your fall.
- How badly you were hurt. The extent of your damages will depend on the extent of your injuries and the impact of your injuries on your life.
Other factors may also be relevant to your potential recovery.
