Cool temperatures and changing leaves means autumn has officially it the Elm City. Autumn months in Connecticut can make sidewalks and walkways even more hazardous with acorns, wet leaves, and rain. It is important to know how to protect yourself against New Haven personal injury on these types of walkways.
Prevention is the best way to protect yourself, but after a fall there are steps you can take to protect yourself.
- Get medical treatment immediately. A doctor or nurse practitioner will be able to assess your condition and the sooner, the better.
- Photograph the area. Visual evidence is the best way to demonstrate the conditions that caused your injury.
- Do not speak, either in a formal statement or otherwise, to any of the parties involved or insurance adjusters.
Taking these few steps in the event that you are injured can be the difference between spending the winter months in agony from your injuries or being fairly compensated for your injuries. If you experience an injury, seek medical attention and then contact an experienced New Haven personal injury lawyer.
