What to do After a Slip and Fall Accident
- The first thing you always want to do after a slip and fall accident, if you haven’t already, is to see a medical provider. Do not delay. Though some injuries may not present themselves right away, certain injuries from a slip, trip or fall can present themselves minutes, hours, and even days later.
- Report your slip and fall accident. If you didn’t immediately inform the owner of the property that you fell on, you should make sure to return or call into the business where the accident occurred. Most businesses have a formal report that you can fill out. Make sure to get a copy of the slip and fall accident report.
- Start a file with your information, records, and reports. If you still have the clothes you were wearing or pictures of yourself after the fall, keep those on hand.
- Contact a New York slip and fall lawyer. Our lawyers have experience dealing with insurance companies and settling these types of claims before it even makes it to a courtroom or lawsuit.
- Refrain from giving any sort of statement to the insurance company if they reach out. Additionally, monitor your activity online. You wouldn’t want to damage your injury claim with pictures online that contradict your injury claim.
