What To Do After a Slip and Fall Accident

what to do after a slip and fall accident

If you’ve experienced a slip and fall accident, your first priority is to seek medical attention, if you think your injury requires immediate medical assistance.

Beyond seeking medical attention, the personal injury attorneys at Negretti & Associates recommend the following:

Gather contact information: Create a list of the names and phone numbers of any eyewitnesses, business managers, business staff members.

Ask to have an incident report generated: If practical, ask the business or place where the slip and fall occurred to create an incident report to memorialize the event.

Take pictures: Photograph the location where the slip occurred and its surrounding area.

Compile documentation related to medical attention: Be sure to give a detailed report to your medical provider about how and where the fall happened.

If you experience a slip and fall accident, you may be in too much pain to gather contact information or take photographs. If this is the case, ask someone who is with you or even an eyewitness to help you.

Remember, a slip and fall accident can require expensive medical treatment, but also may involve the loss of time and wages.
