  • Do You Know What To Do After A Slip And Fall Accident?

    September 10, 2018

    When slip and fall accidents occur and unless there are serious injuries, people generally react with embarrassment and hope that there were no witnesses to their humiliation! Unfortunately, a few hours later, they may find that they have suffered serious injuries that require medical attention.

    Apart from the medical aspect of delay, the legal and insurance aspects are equally important when seeking compensation for injuries. Hence, it’s important to follow certain steps if you’ve had a slip and fall accident on someone else’s premises. No matter how minor you assume the injuries to be, these steps should be followed.

    • Get immediate medical attention so that your injuries are documented, thoroughly investigated and the right treatment provided
    • Report the accident to someone in authority immediately and get a written acknowledgment. If you’re badly hurt, make sure that a family-member/trusted friend does it on your behalf
    • Get contact details of anyone who may have witnessed the incident and make a note of any CCTV cameras in the vicinity that may have recorded it
    • If possible, take photographs on your cell-phone of the exact location with prominent landmarks
    • The photos should have time/date stamp and they should also show the hazardous condition
    • Never confront anyone, be persuaded to sign documents or give permission to access your personal information and records
    • Don’t enter into private settlements, apologize, blame yourself or neglect filing a report

    Consult an experienced slip and fall injury lawyer immediately. We can protect your rights and interests while helping you get the compensation you deserve.
