When we think of accidents, the first thing that comes to mind is car accidents. But motor vehicle accidents are, by no means, the only type of accident; others, such as slip and falls, are equally serious. No matter what type of accident it may be, the worst part is often the thought that it was not your fault—that it was caused by the negligence of someone else.
When you have been injured in an accident, you are in a vulnerable position. You are in need of medical care, and are not in a fit state to handle the logistics of covering your medical, therapeutic, work-related, and other costs. What’s more, you lack the knowledge to pursue the issue of liability, which is vital to ensuring that the negligent party is held accountable.
Common Settings for Slip and Fall Accidents
There are many types of buildings in the county where accidents can occur. Delaware County has an astounding number of educational institutions, including public schools, private schools, adult education centers, and universities. It also has a huge number of libraries. There are many shopping malls, including Springfield Mall, Granite Run Mall, MacDade Shopping Center, Suburban Square, Driveline Shopping Center, and the Shops at Brinton Lakes. There is also an outlet mall planned for construction near Sunbury.
Most accidents don’t just happen; they involve negligence on the part of someone. For example, if you fall on a property that is improperly maintained, the owner of that property is considered the responsible party.
Knowing that your injury was not your fault can be upsetting; it is important for you to know that the responsible party is held accountable.
