How Do I Handle a Slip & Fall Accident?
In every case, you’re going to be asked, “What was the substance that caused you to fall?” People sometimes fall and they land on the floor and they’re understandably caught up in, “I was hurt. I didn’t really appreciate what it was, I only know my foot slipped out from underneath them.” It’s really important to try to have an understanding of why you fell. You should identify every single witness they can, they should take photos not only of the scene but also of the injuries they suffer.
When a person who’s injured goes to a hospital and they don’t follow the advice of a medical practitioner, that person will later be blamed for the failure to recover from those injuries. If there’s an aggravation of those conditions or the conditions prolong for a lengthy period of time, they will themselves be blamed for not following medical advice. It’s important to follow medical advice, it’s important to get to a lawyer as quickly as possible to preserve the evidence and help them in their later claim.
