Injured yourself through slipping & falling?

    Here are a few important steps to remember following the incident:

    Slip & Fall
    Oftentimes, people dismiss the potential dangers posed by a slip-and-fall injury. If your slip-and-fall accident happened on someone else’s property and happened due to their negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. However, it is important that you take the immediate steps following a slip and fall that resulted in an injury. We have outlined several steps you should always take following the accident.

    Seek Medical Help
    Always tread the line of over cautiousness, contact emergency medical personnel if you fear the severity of your injury. Even if the incident is minor and you feel fine, be sure to get checked out by a medical professional.
    All injuries should be properly documented, even the smallest accidents.

    Document Everything
    If your slip-and-fall accident happened on a property you should report your fall to the owner or manager of said property and make sure they prepare an incident report. Be sure to receive a copy of that report. If you are able to write a report of your own as soon as possible, if you have a friend or family member with you they can help write up the report as well. Write down your version the accident, any relevant information about where the slip-and-fall occurred, along with names and other relevant information about anyone involved.

    Take Photos of the Scene
    Photographic evidence can be crucial in terms of evidence for your case. Remember to take various photos of the scene as these help in building your case. Photograph the direct cause  of your fall as well as anything surrounding that could have contributed to the injury, such as dim lighting or loose handrails. Preserve the clothing that you wore during the time of the fall. Take photos of what you wore during the incident as well. Additionally, if there were surveillance cameras, ask to get the footage that documented your fall.

    Acquire Witnesses
    Someone must have seen your fall.
    Get the names and contact information of any potential witnesses in the vicinity, remember to get their statements immediately. Even if the witness did not see that actual accident occur they can corroborate to the conditions of the area following the incident.
