What To Do After A Slip-And-Fall Accident
It can be hard to know what to do after a sudden accident, especially if you are in a lot of pain. Here are some things you should do immediately after an accident:
• Determine what caused your fall accident. If it was due to liquid on the floor, a broken railing or bad pavement in a parking lot, use your phone to take pictures if you can, or ask someone with you to do so. A property owner may make corrections right away, making it difficult for you to prove there were hazards when you slipped, tripped or fell.
• Report the accident to the appropriate authority. For example, if you fall in a grocery store, report it to a manager.
• Seek medical treatment and be sure to tell your doctor exactly what happened.
• Talk to an attorney.
Serious Injuries Often Follow A Slip And Fall
Slip and fall accidents happen quickly and many may discount the harm they can cause. It was “just a fall.” But falls can be extremely dangerous if you strike your head. For the elderly, falls that cause broken legs or hips can lead to serious complications and serious health problems. If you have fallen, you should have a thorough medical examination to determine if you suffered any injury.
The law governing who is at fault can be complicated and the case can become very complex if the fall leads to a traumatic brain injury or another serious injury. We can help by building a strong case that demonstrates the property owners negligence and shows the injuries that you suffered as a result.
