What Should I Do After a Slip, Trip, or Fall incident?

After any accident that leaves you injured, the first thing you should do is seek medical care. If possible, you’ll want to gather some information at the scene, including photos of the area and contact information for workers and witnesses. Look around to see what caused your fall. Is there liquid on the ground? Poor lighting? A hazard in the walkway? Take photos or ask someone to take photos before evidence is cleaned up or removed. Request a copy of the incident report. Ask someone else to do it for you if you’re unable to because of your injury.

Next, you need to contact a slip and fall attorney at The Ruth Law Team as soon as possible. The sooner we start investigating and building your case, the sooner you could receive the compensation you’re due.
