The most important thing that you can do after a “slip, trip and fall” accident is to determine what substance or obstacle caused you to fall and how long it was there. Premises Liability can require a lot of detail, so we want to offer what you should do in the event of a premises liability accident. If possible, get a sample of the substance, or at least photographs. It is important that you preserve evidence of the cause of your fall, and that you preserve your shoes and clothes in the same condition as when you fell. It is also very important to obtain the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of all witnesses to your fall.
If you require medical attention, seek it immediately through a physician of your choice. It is important that a qualified health care professional examine you, document your injuries and begin indicated treatment. Photographs of your injuries may be helpful, as well, if they are visible. As soon as possible, contact your attorneys, Heiting & Irwin, as it is best to obtain facts, information, materials and witnesses while the information is still fresh.
