It’s that time of year again. Stadiums around Wisconsin are filling up for football, soccer, and other fall sports. Fans are ready to have some fun, but what if you are one of the fans who goes home with a broken bone, concussion, or other injury after falling at the stadium? A fun afternoon has now turned into a painful and expensive injury.
Who Will Pay for Your Recovery?
How you were hurt will determine who should pay for your slip and fall recovery. If the owners of the stadium, a maintenance company, or another party was negligent, then the negligent party may be responsible for paying for your injuries. For example, if there was a broken stair that was hard to see and caused you to trip and fall, then the stadium owners could be responsible for your injury. Similarly, if there was a slippery substance used by the cleaning service and no signs were posted, then that company could be responsible for paying your damages.
Take These Steps to Protect Your Recovery
Slip and fall cases often require solid evidence in order to prove who was at fault for the injury. Accordingly, it is important to:
- Take pictures at the accident scene
- Write down the names and contact information for anyone who witnessed your accident
- Report your accident to the manager or supervisor on duty
- Get immediate and ongoing medical help for your injury
- Talk to a slip and fall lawyer
