While you may not realize it, slip and fall accidents are a large contributor to brain and spinal cord injuries in the United States. No matter how your slip and fall accident happens, if you are seriously injured after falling on another person’s property, there are some key steps you should take to make sure you can recover completely from the accident.
The most important thing to do after a slip and fall accident is to make sure you’re all right. If you feel injured, contact a medical professional to have yourself examined. Then:
- Write down everything you can remember about the accident, including time of day, adverse conditions, lighting, and any lack of warnings
- Return to the scene of the accident and take pictures of where it occurred to help your case
- Contact an experienced premises liability lawyer in your area to schedule an initial case evaluation
A slip and fall accident can be much more serious than you think. When you slip and fall on wet or uneven ground, you can suffer whiplash and even Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). You may be able to recover compensation for your medical bills, pain and suffering, and wages lost as a result of your injury.
