1. Take Pictures
If you’re able to, take pictures. Pictures of what caused a trip or slip and the surrounding area. If you have a visible injury, take a picture of that as well.
2. See a Doctor
Should be immediately done, getting a medical examination after a trip and fall accident is also significant evidence about the ramifications you may face after an injury.
3. Report the Incident
Go to the manager, owner, or landlord. Tell them what happened. Get the report in writing and ask for a copy of it.
Note: While getting a written report, let them know that a fall occurred refrain from saying anything beyond the specific details.
4. Keep Organized Records
The more information, the better. In addition to photos of the scene, grab the information of any witnesses. Write down their names and phone numbers. Keep these with the written report.
5. Talk to an Attorney
Gather the photos, reports, and other documentation you have and contact a lawyer. They’ll have the expertise to guide you through the steps needed to protect your interests.
