Slip and fall accidents are often costly and caused by others or a business entity. Unfortunately, because more often than not, those at fault are unwilling to accept responsibility, a lawsuit may be the only option to recover medical expenses, lost wages, and monetary compensation for pain and suffering. As such, it is important to do the following things immediately after a slip and fall accident.
Remain at the Accident Scene. Do not leave the scene of the accident, no matter how minor. Leaving the scene of an accident may constitute a crime and may deny you the opportunity to ensure that an accurate police report is filed. Moreover, ensuring that the accident is properly documented and preserving any photos or evidence of the accident scene may help to protect your interest.
