Whenever we go over to a friend’s house, or any other person’s house for that matter, we never think we’ll be seriously injured. As almost ridiculous as that seems, it does happen and it may result in a legal matter. Homeowners all have the responsibility of making sure that their property is safe for anyone to be on at any given time. If there is a dangerous condition on the homeowner’s property, they need to be made aware of it and have it taken care of as soon as possible. If not, they may be at fault in a personal injury case because they either knew or should have reasonably known that there was a dangerous condition present on their property and they did nothing to fix it.
If you are injured on another person’s property, it is essential that you do your best to take pictures of the dangerous condition that caused you to become injured. It will come in handy if you file a premises liability lawsuit against them. Keep in mind that this is also very important if you are injured on municipal property or in a store. Try to take photographs before you leave the property to seek medical treatment because in many cases, the dangerous condition can quickly be either moved or fixed, which may have a negative impact on the outcome of your case.
