Slips and falls are never expected.
You may be wondering what to do next. It is important to consult with an experienced attorney, like the slip and fall attorneys at Negretti & Associates, to determine if there is anything that can be done against the property where you fell.
What to do after a slip and fall:
Most slip and fall injuries happen for a reason, and documenting your surroundings at the time of the accident can be crucial. Were there missing “wet floor” signs at the location the accident took place? Was there food spilled that was later not properly cleaned? Is there uneven concrete that led to the accident? Take all of it in to consideration. Then take the time to write it down as well as capture photo evidence, so that we can help review this evidence with you.
Were there people around you when the accident occured? If so, make sure to jot down their names and contact information. Having witnesses on your behalf when an accident happens can be a crucial piece in disputing your case. Even if there was no one there to witness, consider those that were there for the aftermath that could describe the scene.
Even if you think it was your fault, do not apologize or claim responsibility. It’s certainly okay to check that everybody is alright, but only after a thorough investigation can you determine who is responsible for an accident. A post accident investigation by our firm may also be necessary to help establish fault.
In the stress of the moment, you may not be able to complete all the above-referenced steps; but that doesn’t mean we can’t help you. Compensation may be available for your current and future medical bills as well as lost wages, incidental costs and for your pain and suffering. If you want a legal team committed to you and your well-being, Negretti & Associates is the right fit for you.

“Jonathan Negretti and his firm handled our personal injury claim against a government entity. The process required much investigation and preparation over the course of two years to assemble a solid case and face a well-resourced defendant. Negretti managed this process competently and professionally and we were satisfied with the outcome and settlement. Throughout, Jonathan showed great sensitivity for our concerns and needs and was very helpful in guiding and advising us on the appropriate legal strategy.”
