What To Do If You Slip and Fall

If you experience a slip and fall accident, you should:

  • Try to determine what made you fall and if it could have been anticipated and prevented.
  • Get the names and addresses of all witnesses.
  • Note the conditions in the area and even the weather if it was a factor in your fall. For example, note if the lighting was poor or there was some substance that made you slip.
  • If you did slip because of something on the floor, try to obtain a sample.
  • Get pictures of the area.
  • Definitely report any fall or accident to the manager or owner and insist that they make a record of it.
  • It will be your (and your lawyer’s) responsibility to prove that a hazard existed and that it was the cause of your accident so having any supporting details and proof will help your case
