After a Slip and Fall Accident: Documenting Your Injuries

After you have been injured in a slip and fall accident, be sure to seek medical attention immediately. Once you have been examined by a medical professional ask for a copy of the medical report that documents your injuries.

In addition to the medical report, you should also document as much of the following as possible. It is important that you continue to journal the following:

- How did the injury occur?

- Where did the injury occur?

- Date and time of accident

-Did you talk to the owner of the property or employees of the business? What did they say?

- How have your injuries affected your day to day activities? Household duties? Social activities?

- How have your injuries affected your sleep? Relationships? Emotional well-being?

Hopefully, you used your cell phone to take pictures of the area that you fell and, in particular, whatever caused you to fall. Be sure to save those pictures so that they are not lost or deleted.

Be sure that you contact an attorney immediately so that the investigation can begin. Many times the site of the accident is changed rapidly so you want to ensure that a site investigation happens as soon after the accident as possible to record what may be critical evidence for your case. When you are injured on someone else's property, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages and decline of your quality of life to name a few. It is important that you contact an attorney who has experience with slip and fall injury cases.
