What Should You Do After a Slip And Fall Accident?

What Should You Do After a Slip And Fall Accident?

Attorney Russel Bopp: If they suffered injuries as a result of a slip and fall accident, there are a couple of things that they need to make sure that they do.

First, they need to make sure they preserve any evidence of the dangerous condition. If they’ve slipped on water, on the floor, in a restaurant, they need to make sure they take pictures of that. If they fell on a defective stairway or a sidewalk that’s been raised, they need to make sure that they’ve documented what the dangerous condition on the property was. It’s very important that they do this immediately after the slip and fall occurs.

If they’re able to, please take a picture. If they’re able to, please collect any witness numbers or names, contact information, so that when the time comes, the attorney can build a case for them and document that there was a dangerous condition that was the cause of their injuries.

In addition to documenting these evidences, it’s important to reach out to an attorney. The attorneys here at Marcus and Mack will do investigations for them. We’ll find out who the record property owner is and we’ll pursue them into the fullest extent of the law.

If they have any questions about whether they have a claim for a slip and fall injuries or what to do after a slip and fall, please give the attorneys at Marcus and Mack a call.
