How Do You Start a Slip and Fall Injury Case?

Once a person has been injured in a slip and fall accident, their thoughts may go to filing a lawsuit. But a lot of people don't know where to even begin the legal process. It can be confusing, but there's no need to worry because we're here to help. You'll want to make sure you do everything right, which will protect your lawsuit.

First – Report the Slip and Fall

Many slips and falls happen in stores, so make sure you report it to the manager. They should have you sit down with them and fill out paperwork to record the accident. Feel free to ask for a copy of the report once it's done. 

Second – Talk to Witnesses and Take Pictures 

You will want to have an accurate record for yourself of how the accident happened. Take pictures of the scene and talk to anyone who saw it happen. Make sure to get their contact information too. 

Third – See a Doctor

Make sure to see your regular doctor as soon as possible. If you're severely injured, go to a local walk-in clinic or emergency room to get the treatment you need.
