Five Things to Know About Slip and Fall Cases

 

Often, when a person slips and falls, they put the blame on him or herself. But the truth is that many times these falls could have been prevented by the business of where the fall occurred. Here are some things you should do following any slip and fall.

Get Medical Attention
It is always important to be evaluated by a medical professional for any injuries. Something that might appear minor could be more serious.
Check for Witnesses
If anyone witnessed your fall, ask him or her what he or she observed and for contact information.
Evaluate the Area
Determine what it was that caused the slip and fall. Make note and take pictures, of any ice, water, loose carpet or anything else that may have caused the fall.
Notify Business Owners
Let the business owner or manager know what happened. Give a full description of the incident and ask for a copy of the accident report.
Document Your Experience
Make a detailed account of your experience. It is important to write down the details while they are fresh in your mind. You will also want to write down what shoes and clothing you were wearing.
