Slip and fall accidents are common and can occur anywhere due to a wide variety of hazards. This type of accident can also result in serious, long-lasting injuries. To pursue the compensation that you deserve, it is helpful if you preserve evidence and seek legal representation right away. Part of the case will involve proving liability of the accident and showing that the property owner violated a ‘duty of care,’ which resulted in your fall. To help set up your case for success if involved in a slip and fall, follow these steps:
- Take pictures of the surroundings and the hazard that caused the slip
- File an injury report to the property owner
- Seek medical attention for your injuries
- Collect the contact information of any witnesses
- Contact a slip & fall lawyer to help build your case
The key to this is to preserve as much evidence of the accident as possible. Being able to prove the cause of the accident is essential in showing who is liable and essentially responsible for providing compensation for your injuries. Evidence can be found in pictures, clothing worn at the time of the accident, statements from witnesses, camera footage and more.
