Sometimes your injuries are readily apparent. You feel significant pain in your leg and have a strong suspicion that it is broken. You lost consciousness for a period of time and have good reasons to suspect a concussion. You are unable to move part of your body and immediately wonder about a spinal cord injury.
However, not all slip and fall injuries are so easily identifiable. Sometimes it takes longer to know that you are hurt even when your injury is serious.
There is No Requirement That You Immediately Identify Your Injury at the Time of Your Fall
In order to recover damages, Wisconsin law requires that your injuries have been caused by your fall. However, the law does not require you, or a doctor, to identify specific injuries immediately after the fall. Some injuries may not show up until the day after, or several days, after your fall accident.
When you first suspect symptoms of a Milwaukee slip and fall injury then you should contact your doctor so that you can begin treatment as soon as possible and protect your potential recovery.
