What is a slip and fall accident?
“Slip and fall” is a term used for a personal injury case in which a person slips or trips and is injured on someone else’s property. Slip and fall accident cases usually fall under the broader category known as premises liability claims, in which the person bringing the suit must show that the property owner was negligent in that an action or actions they took or failed to take caused the fall. If you experience a slip and fall accident, it’s important to seek immediate medical attention and report your accident to property management as soon as possible.
If you slip and fall and experience immediate or severe pain, call 911 immediately. If you do not go to the hospital, see your doctor within 48 hours, as some injuries such as brain and spinal injuries might not be immediately obvious. Ask your doctor for a copy of your exam results, as you will need medical records in order to pursue a claim for reimbursement of medical costs associated with your accident. Take photos of the area where the accident took place, if possible, and gather any witness statements. This could prove to be crucial in providing evidence of negligence on the part of the property owner where the slip and fall accident took place.
