The first concern is getting medical attention, if that’s required. They’re not going to know for sure if you’re injured unless you go see a doctor. If there’s a concern, seek medical attention. The next step in a slip and fall type matter would be to determine, why did you slip and fall? What caused your fall? These are things that you’re going to want to note because your attorney is going to find these facts very important to them, in trying to establish whether or not you have a slip and fall case that you can pursue.
There are other issues in slip and fall cases that your attorney will also be looking at. For instance, who is responsible for the slip and fall, who owns the property where the slip and fall occurred? Perhaps, who maintained the property where the fall occurred? There are a lot of issues that come up in a slip and fall case. It’s a good idea to talk to an experienced attorney who’s handled multiple slip and fall cases because these are cases insurance companies fight with vigor.
