During the winter months, slippery sidewalks from ice and snow increase the risk of seriously injuring yourself due to a slip or fall. Just imagine this: you're walking your dog through your neighborhood on a cold snowy night when, suddenly, your feet slip out from underneath you - causing you to land awkwardly on your arm and slam your back/head on the concrete sidewalk. A sharp pain immediately shoots through your arm, and your vision blurs amid a splitting headache.
If you suffer a serious injury due to the negligence of someone else, it's likely that their insurance company will contact you for an official statement to review details of the incident before offering an injury settlement. Before talking to the insurance company let alone coming to any decision, however, you should seek advice from our team at Dugan & Associates in order to know when you should - or shouldn't - accept a settlement offer based on the specifics of your case.
