After a Slip and Fall Injury
Are you wondering what steps you need to take after a slip and fall injury to maximize your compensation? Watch this video to learn more.
What should I do after being injured in a slip and fall accident?
One of the things that’s most important after a slip and fall injury is that you contact and notify a supervisor at the store or location where it occurred to make sure that they are aware of the accident. If it doesn’t get reported immediately, it’s as if the accident never happened. It’s also important that you make a mental note and document the injury. For example, if there was water there, how big was the area of water? Did it come from ice? Did it come from a soda? You need to write this stuff down because, eventually, it’s going to become important.
It’s also important that you seek immediate medical attention. That means not only going to the hospital but also going to your medical provider. When you go to the hospital, they’re typically going to just triage you and look at life and death situations. Your personal doctor is going to look at you to make sure that any untreated injuries are properly examined.
It’s also important that you hire an experienced lawyer who’s handled slip and fall cases before. This is important because there may be an additional investigation that needs to be done. For example, did the water on the floor come from a refrigerator that was close by? Did it occur because one of the store employees spilled something? There needs to be a proper investigation and inspection of the facility. If you have any questions, we are here to help.
