What should I do after a slip and fall accident?

What should I do after a slip and fall accident?

  • If you fall in a store, the most important thing is to document what caused you to fall, witnesses, and report the incident to the store.
  • If you are injured, dial 911, let them know you fell in a store, and request medical assistance.
  • If you or someone you are with have a phone, take pictures of what caused you to fall. Pictures should be from a distance, showing the aisle as well as a close-up of what caused you to fall. If anyone was in the aisle when you fell, either a customer or employee, make sure you document their information by taking a picture of them or their identification if they are willing to share it.
  • Find an employee and bring a manager to the area you fell. Have them document the fall and the cause of the fall.  Take a picture of the manager and make sure that you show the manager what caused you to fall.

Remember, the key to any case is document, document, document; and a picture is worth a thousand words.  If you are injured, when the rescue arrives, never refuse medical attention.  Be transported to the nearest or most appropriate hospital.
