Slip and fall accidents often lead to serious injuries. These events, however, can be difficult to prove unless you take the correct steps after the accident occurs. If you have fallen on a commercial property and have been injured, the Law Offices of Faloni & Associates encourages you to take the following actions:
Report Accident Immediately to Owner
You will want to report the accident as soon as it occurred and have an accident report completed by the management or owner of the property. Make sure to include any eyewitness information on the report. Take pictures of the scene of the accident, if possible.
Get Medical Attention
Even if your injury seems minor at the time, it is important to get a medical evaluation. Fractures, concussions, and other issues may not be apparent at the scene of the accident.
Contact Fairfield NJ Slip and Fall Accident Lawyers
You are encouraged to contact the Law Offices of Faloni & Associates as soon as possible after the accident. The best way to protect your rights as a slip and fall injury victim is to have quality legal representation managing your case.
Avoid Posting on Social Media About Your Accident
All Fairfield NJ slip and fall accident lawyers will encourage their clients to avoid posting anything about their accident on social media. Your attorney may even ask that you do not post anything on social media while your case is open. Insurance companies search these sites for information about you in an effort to discredit your case.
Make All of Your Appointments
Your attorney will remind you that it is important to attend all of your doctor appointments and any meetings necessary with the law firm. Missing appointments with your doctor “tells” the insurance company that you are not injured and do not need care. Missing appointments with your attorney prolongs your case.
