Important Things to Do After a Slip and Fall Accident
If you’ve been involved in a slip and fall accident…
If there were witnesses to your accident, write down their contact information and try to get a statement from them as soon as possible. Witnesses’ memories of the incident can diminish over time; obtaining a statement early will strengthen your case. Take photos of the accident scene and the hazard(s) that caused your fall. If you are too injured to do so, ask someone to take pictures for you. While people do not always carry a camera with us, remember that most modern cellphones are equipped with cameras. Keep a complete and accurate written record of all medical bills related to the fall to submit with your claim. If your accident was captured by a video surveillance camera, obtain a copy of the tape for your slip and fall lawyer. Beware the statute of limitations. There are strict state laws that impose deadlines victims must meet to make a claim. Contact a personal injury lawyer. Slip and fall cases can be difficult to prove, and can be met with skepticism due to fraudulent claims. A personal injury attorney can evaluate your accident and present your case in the strongest possible light, giving you the best chance to get the money you deserve.
