What should I do after being injured on a residential property?
We are often asked what you should do if you’re injured on a residential property in Wyoming. The first thing you should do is go to a doctor as soon as possible. Get medical care. Determine the full extent of your injuries. That’s always important. Document, through a third party such as the doctor, the extent of the injuries to verify the injury was serious enough to seek medical care. That will always come up, and it will always be used against you that you didn’t go to a doctor soon enough. That’s very important, so go seek medical care. Take care of yourself. Determine the full extent of your injuries. A lot of times, people don’t know how badly injured they are.
We talked to an orthopedic surgeon just the other day and he said it’s so common that people don’t recognize how seriously they’re injured initially, and then a couple weeks go by and they know they have a serious injury. In one particular case, a client of ours had a broken back. The individual didn’t realize how seriously they were injured for a couple of weeks, and then the injury, of course, was one of those that progressed. It was a compression fracture of a thoracic vertebra. In that particular case, the full ramifications of the injury became apparent when back spasms started a couple weeks later. The individual went in for an x-ray and, sure enough, had a broken back. That is something you need to document early on. Get medical care. You may not know how seriously you were injured.
