Have you been at someone’s house, or on someone’s property and injured yourself? There are many instances where it may have been their fault, not yours that you tripped, fell, and injured yourself.
You shouldn’t have to be stuck paying for medical bills, and losing income from work, when you were simply visiting their home. A personal injury solicitor for accident claims can help you wade through insurance company paperwork, ensuring that you receive a fair settlement that will cover your hospital stay, medical bills, and prescription medication.

Personal Injury and Accidents Can Happen
Unfortunately an accident can cause a rift between neighbors or friends. Most homeowners purchase liability insurance in the event that someone does get injured on their property. When that happens, some people may be resistant to providing insurance details to you, yet they had purchased insurance to cover them in the event of a visitor being injured.
It doesn’t make sense, so you’ll need to hire a personal injury solicitor and lawyer to find out who their insurance provider is, so you can get your claim in.
Fighting With Insurance Companies
Many times you will be provided with insurance information. You may find the insurance adjuster difficult to work with. They may be hoping that you’ll go for a quick and easy cash settlement. But often these settlements are not in your best interests. You may need ongoing medical care.
What are you going to do when the cash runs out? Before signing any paperwork, consult first with a personal injury solicitor who can advise you on accident claims. They’ll be able to advise you on the best course of action. They may be able to negotiate a better offer from the insurance company, so that you’re not left stuck paying any bills on your own.
Different Types of Personal Injury Claims
There are many types of personal injuries that can happen on someone else’s personal property. You may be walking down an icy sidewalk in winter that should have been salted and sanded. If you fall and break a bone, it’s now their fault that they didn’t adequately remove the ice from the sidewalk, particularly within city bylaw timeframes.
Injuries involving slippery floors in bathroom or kitchen can be common. A homeowner may be lax in drying a floor after cleaning, or have spilled some grease on the floor. This can cause falls and injuries. Objects left strewn over the floor can be tripped on, or cause injury too.
Dog bites are a common concern. If their dog has a history of biting, yet they didn’t properly restrain their dog while in your presence, there may be a lawsuit if the dog bites you.
Food poisoning may be another liability issue. If you’ve eaten a meal at a friend’s home, but it was not cooked or prepared properly, it may have caused you a visit to the emergency room to treat food poisoning.
If you’re saddled with excessive medical bills due to a personal injury at a friend’s or neighbor’s house, call a personal injury lawyer to discuss how you can receive a cash settlement that is fair to you.
