SLIP & FALL ACCIDENT

SOLUTIONS START HERE.

Slip and fall accidents can happen to anyone. Anywhere.

In a blink of an eye, your life and physical health could change all because of a slip and fall accident. Even a few drops of water on the floor could cause serious injuries, thousands of dollars in medical bills, missed days of work, and lost wages. The owner or employees must appropriately handle hazardous conditions on their property. If they’re not, it is your right to seek compensation for your injuries.

After receiving medical attention, the next step should be to take photos of the scene on the slip and fall. From there, we encourage you to contact our team at Loutos Law. Time of the essence regarding these types of accidents.

What you should do after a Slip and Fall Accident

You may be distressed and confused after a slip and fall accident. If you suffer a slip and fall, immediately do the following:

  • Seek medical attention: Your first priority is your health- if you haven’t already, get checked out by a doctor, as certain injuries are not immediately apparent.

  • File a report: If you didn’t have time to report your accident at the time of it occurring, file a report with management so you have official documentation of the accident.

  • Take pictures of the accident area: Having images or video of the area can help to determine liability

  • Save the witnesses’ contact information: If anybody saw the incident, make sure to take down their contact information
