Take these 3 important steps after a slip-and-fall accident

A slip-and-fall accident can leave you injured and in need of financial support. Especially when a slip-and-fall is a direct result of a property owner’s negligence, you need to take action not only to receive compensation to recover, but also to hold the responsible party accountable.

In order to get the help you need, there are some important steps you need to take in the aftermath of your slip-and-fall accident.

1. Report the incident

Whether it was due to a slippery entryway, cluttered aisle or exposed extension cord, it’s important that you or a companion notify an employee, manager or property owner immediately. Not only will this individual need to know about the accident for legal purposes, but also so that they can tend to the problem to prevent anyone else from slipping and falling.

2. Take photos of the scene

If you are able, take photographs of the scene of the accident. This includes the problem that caused the accident, the injury you sustained and the clothes and shoes you were wearing at the time. Photographic proof can help strengthen your case when you file your personal injury claim.

3. Get medical attention

A slip-and-fall accident can result in serious and debilitating injury. Brain injuries, spine injuries, broken bones and lacerations can lead to long hospital stays, continuous doctors’ appointments, intensive surgeries and ongoing therapy. The sooner you seek medical attention, the sooner you may be able to receive compensation to pay for your expenses.

Don’t hesitate to take action

You shouldn’t have to put up with unsafe conditions on public property or business premises. It’s your right to seek support during this difficult time, and filing a personal injury claim can help protect those rights and put you on the path to recovery.
