If I was seriously injured by an accidental fall, what should I do?
Once you’ve sought medical attention, if at all possible, make sure photos are taken of the area where you fell and the surrounding area. What caused you to fall or slip? Was it liquid on a floor, a dilapidated sidewalk or walkway, an unmarked hazard? A picture is worth a thousand words when it comes to accidental slips and falls.
Next, identify and document the address, time and place in which your injury occurred, and do your best to get contact information from any witnesses. Witness statements may prove invaluable later on.
