Slip and fall accidents happen unexpectedly and can result in devastating injuries. Surprising though this situation may be, it is important to follow certain steps to ensure optimal results for your slip and fall case. Here are three (3) things to do directly after the accident:
- Report the incident to the property owner – Whether this happened on residential property or commercial property, you must notify the owner or manager of what transpired. If you do not, the property owner can not inform their insurance company to get things started. If the accident happened on commercial property, make sure an incident report is filled out and get the information of their insurance company for your records.
- Get medical assistance right after – This is another step that, if not taken, could result in the loss of your slip and fall case. Going to a doctor or hospital immediately afterward shows insurance companies that your injuries were serious and that they needed immediate attention. Casually going to a hospital at a later date will harm your case considerably.
- Speak with a slip and fall lawyer – It is always a good idea to consult with a lawyer regarding any personal injury case, which include slip and falls. Your focus should be on your recovery while a lawyer focuses on the complex legal issues.
