Slip & Fall Accidents

"What should I do after getting injured in a slip and fall accident?"

When people fall in supermarkets or in other public places, they typically get up and try to walk away because they are too embarrassed that they fell down. They are hoping that no one saw them fall. However, it would actually be a good thing if someone did see the fall. Any observer is a witness to the accident and may be able to substantiate what really happened in the supermarket fall. Keep in mind, then, that it is beneficial to see if someone saw you fall on the spilled liquid or hazard that was in the shopping lane. If so, get contact information in case you need a witness.

Several other things you should do after getting injured in a slip and fall include:

  • See a Doctor. Depending on the severity of any injury, you may want to be transported to the emergency room by an ambulance to get prompt medical care. If your injuries aren’t too bad, then you may want to make an appointment with your primary care doctor. In either case, it is critical that you seek medical attention immediately for your health and for documentation purposes in case you pursue a Georgia premises liability case.
  • Take Down Details. If possible, write down what time the fall occurred and take detailed notes of what happened. If you have a camera on your cell phone, take pictures of the accident scene.
  • Talk with an Accident Attorney. Talking to a lawyer skilled in premises liability law will let you know if you have a case and how to go about protecting your rights.
