What to Do After a Slip and Fall Accident
If you’ve been injured in a slip and fall accident, act quickly before critical evidence vanishes or is removed from the scene.
After a fall, consider doing the following:
- Inform the property owner – or manager of the premises – of the fall.
- Complete an incident report.
- Contact the police.
- Take photos and videos of the scene.
- Record the names and contact information of the property owner, tenant, or manager on-site, as well as any eyewitnesses to the fall.
- Seek medical treatment.
Because key evidence can be erased or forgotten, it is critical to gather as much information as possible at the accident scene while keeping the victim safe and comfortable. In addition to gathering this information on your own, however, be sure to contact a personal injury attorney to help you preserve your claim and to thoroughly investigate the incident.
Pursuing Compensation for Your Slip and Fall Accident
After a serious accident, a personal injury lawyer may recommend filing an action known as a “premises liability” lawsuit. This is a legal proceeding against the owner or manager of a property. Through the process, we will gather additional evidence in the form of business records, including whether – and how often – a site has been inspected, cleaned, or repaired. We will also collect records regarding whether similar incidents have occurred on the premises. The goal is to prove that the property was in an unreasonably dangerous condition at the time of your accident and that the property owner or manager was negligent in failing to keep it safe.
Through the legal process, our lawyers will pursue compensation for your:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Physical pain
- Emotional distress
- Reduced or lost earning capacity
- Reduced quality of life
