Kentucky Slip and Fall Accidents
I bet once in life you got caught into a situation where you slipped and fell over a sidewalk, and that you wondered: Can I sue someone because of this? And who would be liable? Now, if you are already looking for a guilty one, stop right there! Because you must think about what happened twice after making assumptions.
Let’s talk about your time & notice deadlines for claiming against your city/town. As I mentioned, these deadlines could differ depending on the state, but you can guide yourself with this guide:
- Do not exceed a 30-day deadline after you got injured, and if it is possible, go and make your sue the day after the events.
- You have to go to the proper law department, and once you are there, you must follow these steps:
- Write the exact location where you had this accident.
- Try to be thorough while you explain the events, and be careful to not omit any important detail.
- Describe precisely the sidewalk’s circumstances and point out exactly how they did affect in your accident.
- Depending on your case, the maximum amount of money that you could ask for should not be above the 100,000$
You must remember that in almost every personal injury case, there is an immense possibility of negligence; so, if you do think that you are not the one to blame, you need to be careful about this.
Why my case does have to be taken negligently? And what can I do to avoid this?
Do not be scared due to the probability of the state being negligent about your case, because it happens almost ever. On the contrary, you need to be determinate and courageous to take vantage of your case!
