Question:

What are common mistakes after being injured in a slip and fall?

Answer:

Common Mistakes After a Slip and Fall If you are a little older, you might remember when the first cell phone came out. One of the biggest mistakes we see people make is running to social media and posting things that are contrary to the injuries that they’re claiming in their slip and fall case. There are some things that you don’t need to put out there. We understand that we’re very social beings and we have all this multimedia stuff. But we often tell clients that are personal injury clients, specifically slip and fall clients here in Arizona, it’s not wise to say everything across social media. At some point, that’s going to come up against you. The insurance company is going to go scrub your social media accounts. They’re going to go talk to people. They’re going to go look at the pictures of you playing basketball two days after you slipped and fell or going to the convenience store. They’re going to pile all this stuff up against you to minimize the value of your case and say, “Well, you really weren’t that hurt,” or, “You really weren’t hurt at all.”

Another mistake we see is people trying to heal and get back too fast when they’re still injured without consulting with their lawyer to make sure that it’s okay to return to normal activity. They settle their case and then three months later they have injuries again. They make you sign a release and a claim of liability. You can’t go back and take a second bite of the apple. You have to be careful of all of these things.

Have that candid talk with your lawyer when you call. Whichever lawyer will be dealing with your case will go over the do’s and don’ts about your slip and fall case so that you’re not making some of the common mistakes that most folks here in Arizona make.
