Checklist for Injury After a Slip-and-Fall

The information below describes what to do after you have been injured:

  • If at all possible, document the site where you fell. Take pictures with your cell phone.
  • Get the names and contact information of anyone who saw your fall or walked by after the incident.
  • Talk to the doorman, the store manager or anyone else associated with the property. Have them record the incident, and listen carefully to what they say. Their offhand comments may be useful to you later on. Also, if possible, find out if the building has a video camera that may have captured what occurred.
  • Seek medical attention. Even if you believe that your fall did not cause serious injuries, talk to your physician as soon as possible after the incident.
  • If you were transported to the hospital, get the names of the ambulance company, the EMTs and any police officers present.
  • Consult an attorney. You may have a right to compensation, but only an experienced personal injury attorney can evaluate your case and talk with you about your options.
