What to Do in the Event of a Slip and Fall Accident

If you or someone you know has endured the tragedy of a trip accident, slip accident or fall accident, it is very important that you follow these next few sponsored steps. This will ensure that your premises liability attorney has everything they need to keep your bases covered and guarantee that your legal battle ends up earning you the largest reimbursement possible.

  • If injured; seek medical attention. Your personal health and well-being should always take priority before you attempt to seek the advice of a premises liability lawyer.
  • Acquire contact information of all parties involved. This includes owners, managers and landlords of the property in question. It is also important to document and take note of any witnesses who saw your slip, trip or fall accident.
  • Avoid making statements regarding who is at fault. Anything you say can and will be held against you in a court of law! Do not jump the gun by making outrageous claims before seeking the advice of a legal advisor or premises liability attorney first.
  • A picture is worth a thousand lawsuits. It’s very important to document any evidence you have that could help you defend your case in a court of law. Quality pictures of your injuries, the layout of the area that you encountered the injury, and the general scene of where you slipped, tripped, or fell are excellent pieces of evidence to have on hand before seeking the advice of an attorney or taking anyone to court.
  • Hold onto the shoes/clothing you were wearing when injured. This may seem silly at first, but your attire at the time of the incident maintains a large amount of importance in deciding whether or not your premises liability claim is valid.
  • Avoid making statements to insurance adjusters. Often times, when clients talk to insurance adjusters first, their statements end up hurting their maximum settlement cost in the end. Avoid speaking to any insurance agency before you seek the advice of a legal attorney.

How to Qualify for a Slip and Fall Case

There are many factors pertaining to the incident of a slip and fall injury that would help qualify you to take your accident to court to seek reparations. For example, if the owner of a public business or home fails to warn you of any known potential hazards, you may be able to use this lack of information in your favor during your case.

Construction workers, for example, are legally obligated to inform you and protect the general public from any harm or injury that would come to them from the dangers that occur in a construction site. In some cases, you may still be eligible to file for a premises liability case even if you were previously warned of any hazards in the area.
