The aftermath of a slip-and-fall accident can be overwhelming for victims and their families.

If you're involved in a slip and fall accident, following these steps can help protect your health and legal rights

1. Seek Immediate Medical Attention: Don’t get up right away if you have fallen, especially if you are unsure of the extent of your injuries. Ask for someone around you to call for help if you are unable to call for help yourself. Stay put until medical professionals arrive on scene and can thoroughly evaluate you. Your health is the priority. Even if injuries seem minor, some may not be immediately apparent. A medical professional can provide a thorough evaluation and documentation that can be crucial for any potential claim.

2. Document ALL Evidence: Take photos or videos of the accident scene IMMEDIATELY, including the specific location, any conditions that contributed to the fall (like wet floors, uneven surfaces, or poor lighting), and your injuries. This is crucial evidence and once the condition has been cleaned up or repaired, it may be impossible to secure the evidence necessary to prove your case in a court of law in the future. Take note as to whether your clothing is wet or ripped.

3. Report the Incident: Notify the property owner, manager, or responsible party about the accident as soon as possible. Request that a written report be made and obtain a copy for your records. You may need to take a picture of the report as the premises owner or manager may refuse to give you a copy of the report for your records or claim that they are unable to provide you with a copy of the report for some reason.

4. Collect Witness Information: If anyone witnessed the accident, ask for their names and contact information. Witness statements can be the difference between recovering compensation and losing your case, especially if other evidence is insufficient.

5. Preserve Evidence: Keep the footwear and clothing you were wearing during the accident in the same condition they were right after the fall. They might serve as evidence later.

6. Consult with Sammons Injury Law: Slip and fall cases can be complex, and laws vary by jurisdiction. Trevor Sammons, an experienced personal injury lawyer, can advise you on your rights, the viability of your claim, and the best course of action to pursue compensation for your injuries.

7. Follow Up on Medical Care: Adhere to the treatment plan prescribed by your healthcare provider. Keep records of all medical visits, treatments, prescriptions, and any other related expenses.

8. Limit Communication with Insurance Companies: Be cautious when speaking with insurance adjusters or representatives from the property where you fell. Avoid making statements to anyone other than your lawyer at Sammons Injury Law. Do not agree to a quick low-ball settlement offer without first consulting Sammons Injury Law.

9. Keep Records: Start a file to keep all documentation related to the accident, including medical records and bills, the accident report, correspondence with insurance companies, and any other relevant information.

10. Avoid social media: Do not post details or discuss your accident on social media platforms. Statements made online can be used out-of-context by the insurance company to discredit your case. It’s just not worth it.

Following these steps can help ensure that you receive the necessary medical care and preserve your legal rights to seek compensation for your injuries and losses resulting from a slip and fall accident.
