SLIP & FALL ACCIDENT

When you least expect to slip and fall is when some of the most severe injuries can occur!

If you are injured in a slip and fall there are a few important steps that you should immediately take after an accident to ensure your safety and to preserve necessary evidence.


Immediately after an accident call 911 & seek medical attention! When you get hurt it is always smart to have a specialist evaluate your injuries. In the event you were to sustain injuries and seek compensation for your injuries, your medical report can be a valuable piece of evidence.


Document and report the accident to somebody! Regardless of where the accident occurred, you should always report it to somebody whether it may be the police, property owner or your landlord.


Slip & Fall

If you are injured make sure you observe your surroundings, document the area, by taking photos or video footage of the accident scene, and take notes of what occurred. Write down or text yourself a note of what you were doing immediately before the accident took place and what you remember immediately after the accident occurred. If possible, gather the contact information of any witnesses who were there at the time of the accident. The more information you have, the better off you are when you document the accident. A few pieces of information that you should request from individuals who witnessed the accident are their first and last name, their phone number, their email address and a statement about what they witnessed.


It is in your best interest after an accident to decline giving any personal statements and to direct all inquiries to your attorney. Always tell the truth, avoid giving a statement to any insurance company until you consult with a personal injury lawyer regarding your accident.
