What to Do After a Slip and Fall Injury

One of the most common legal misconceptions is that a store must pay for your medical  treatment if you happen to fall on their premises. After a slip and fall injury, there are  several things that you should do. I cannot emphasize enough how important it is to  understand what to do after a slip and fall. It is very important that you follow the steps  that I will go through in this blog post because failure to do so may affect your ability to  prove your slip and fall case. 

Get Medical Attention: the first thing to do is take care of your physical health. If you  had a serious injury and you need emergency medical care, get yourself to a doctor or  hospital immediately. It’s important to see a doctor right away and just get checked out.  Sometimes, very serious problems won’t be noticeable for a couple of days or weeks. 

File an Accident Report: If you don’t have to leave the store or the business by  ambulance, try to speak with the manager of the store and file an accident report  immediately. Don’t presume everything is on camera. If you had to go to the hospital, as  soon as you feel better, go back to the store or business, and file an accident report. The  goal is to obtain some type of paperwork detailing your accident. 

Contact a Personal Injury Attorney: the next step in the process would be to contact a  lawyer because slip and fall cases aren’t like auto accident cases. You are not an expert  in insurance claims. Do not even think about handling your claim on your own. Having  dealt with insurance companies for 20 years, I would never entertain the thought of  handling a slip and fall injury claim on my own. There are literally dozens of mistakes you  can make in dealing with all the aspects of a slip and fall injury claim. The good news is  that at Suarez & Montero, our personal injury attorneys are here for you 24/7.
