Steps to Take After a Slip and Fall Accident in Georgia

Slip and Fall accident lawyerHere are five steps all slip and fall accident victims should take immediately after an accident:

  1. Get Medical Attention — Even if you think that you were unhurt, you still want to have a medical professional review your condition. Some injuries involve delayed symptoms, and insurance companies will use any delay in treatment to argue your injuries are not as severe as you claim.
  2. Take Photos — You will want to get as many photographs as you can of your accident scene before it is corrected and the evidence disappears. Try to get pictures of the hazard from as many angles and distances as possible. If you are unable to take photographs because of the need for medical care, try to have a friend or family member do this for you.
  3. Get Witness Information — If anybody saw your accident, make sure to get as much contact information as possible from them. Phone numbers or email addresses are often enough, but the more the better.
  4. File a Report — If your accident occurred in a place of business, make sure to file an incident report with the manager on duty. Ask for a copy of the report.
  5. Contact an Attorney — Make sure you retain legal counsel before speaking to an insurance company. Many insurers will try to get victims to accept settlements that frequently do not account for significant future costs victims will incur. An experienced personal injury lawyer can fight to get you the compensation you need and deserve for all past, present, and future needs.

The insurers for negligent parties in many slip and fall cases attempt to transfer much of the blame to victims. In many cases, representatives from insurance companies get victims to unknowingly make very damaging statements during seemingly harmless conversations.
