Consequences of a slip and fall accident in Pennsylvania can range from mere embarrassment to permanent body damage. If you’re involved in a slip and fall accident, here are some tips to protect yourself and your rights.
- If you are seriously injured, seek medical attention immediately. If you later seek to hold a negligent party accountable for your slip and fall, a medical assessment may become the most important building block in your case. Follow all instructions given to you by your doctor.
- As soon as you can after the accident, write down everything you remember. What was the date and time? Where were you? How was the lighting? Did you see the hazard that caused your slip and fall, or were you surprised by it? Write down as many details as possible.
- If there were any eyewitnesses to your accident, try to get their names and contact information. Ask them if they’re willing to write down for you the details they remember about your accident. In addition, get the name and contact information of the person or company responsible for the area in which you slipped and fell.
- Take pictures of the area in which you slipped. If possible, take pictures of the hazard that you believed caused your slip and fall – ice, a spill, a crack in the sidewalk. Also, take pictures of the surrounding area.
