What To Do After a Slip & Fall Accident?

After a slip and fall accident, seek medical care right away. Medical attention will ensure you get the treatment you need. It will also create a record of your injuries to support your claim. 

Also, report your accident to the property manager or owner. Many businesses have established procedures for reporting accidents.  After filing a report, request a copy of it from the business. A report will provide critical documentation of your accident and injuries. 

Preserving as much evidence as possible to support a future personal injury case is important. Therefore, you should gather evidence such as the following:

  • Medical records and bills
  • Photos of where the fall took place
  • Statements and contact information from witnesses
  • Incident reports 
  • Surveillance or other video evidence

Then, contact a trustworthy slip and fall accident attorney as soon as possible after the accident. An attorney can assist with preserving and gathering evidence to build the strongest possible case. Additionally, slip and fall accident lawyers are well-versed in the specific requirements and time frames for filing a lawsuit in your area.

What Type of Damages Can I Claim From a Slip & Fall Accident?

Slip and fall personal injury claims are civil lawsuits that seek compensation from the party at fault for the accident. Some of the possible damages that victims of slip and fall accidents can claim include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation expenses
  • Lost wages for time missed from work
  • Emotional or psychological impacts
  • Pain and suffering

The experienced, client-centered Melbourne slip and fall lawyers at Farah & Farah are dedicated to securing the maximum compensation for you and your family after a slip and fall injury. Our results are no accident—we are committed to fighting for our clients every step of the way.

Causes of Slip & Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents can occur anywhere, but several common hazards frequently lead to slips and falls. Some examples of causes of slips and falls include the following:

  • Ice or snow on the ground
  • Broken and uneven pavement
  • Spills or wet floors
  • Uneven flooring or rugs
  • Objects or debris on the floor
  • Poor lighting
  • Wobbly or defective ladders or stepladders

Sometimes, slip and fall accidents result from a property owner’s negligence in maintaining safe conditions. For example, if an establishment has uneven flooring that the property owner knew about and failed to repair, the owner would likely be legally responsible for any slip and fall accidents that result.
