If you are injured at a Wisconsin sporting event, the owner of the arena or stadium where the event took place may be held responsible for your injuries. However, if you hope to collect damages for your injuries, you will need to take steps in order to protect your Wisconsin slip and fall injury claim.
Our Green Bay slip and fall injury attorneys recommend that you file an incident report with the facility where your injury occurred. Look over the report and make sure the details are correct. Ask for a copy of the report to keep in your files.
Some other key tips to help you preserve your rights to a financial recovery:
- If any people witnessed your accident, ask for their names and contact information. Add the witness information to the accident report.
- If you have a camera, take pictures of the place where your injury occurred. If a dangerous condition caused your fall, take pictures of the condition.
- Also take pictures to document your injuries. If you have numerous injuries, you may want to keep a notebook where you record your symptoms, your pain levels, and any treatment.
- See a doctor immediately. Tell the doctor about your accident and make sure that he includes the details of the accident in your medical report. Follow your doctor’s directions. Take all your medications and make any necessary follow-up appointments.
Contact a Green Bay personal injury lawyer. The attorney will be able to determine who is responsible for your injuries. If someone else can be held liable for your slip and fall injuries, you could be eligible for compensation for your medical bills, out-of-pocket costs, lost wages, and the pain and suffering you suffered as a result of your injury.
