Important Steps to Take After a Slip & Fall Accident
Millions of people are injured in slip & falls every year. Unfortunately, most of the time slip & fall could've been completely prevented. A fall can impact not only a person's day-to-day but their whole life ultimately.
You need to ensure you take certain steps when you have been injured in a slip and fall.
1) Get Medical Treatment Immediately
Whether it's called the paramedics to the scene or going to urgent care after the fall, you need to ensure you get proper care for your injuries. A doctor's examination will also document that you were hurt in a slip and fall.
2) Report the Fall
If the slip and fall occurred in a store, office, or any other business, make sure the accident is reported and documented. You must also request a copy of your accident report.
3) Take Photos
If you are able to, take as many photos of the scene as possible. This will allow us to prove that there were unsafe conditions.
4) Do Not Admit Fault
Even if you believe that you may have been at fault for the slip and fall, NEVER accept blame until professionals have reviewed the case. Do not give statements to anyone until you have consulted an experienced accident attorney.
