Next Steps After A Slip-And-Fall Accident

After you've fallen, tripped or been injured on another person's property, there are important steps you should take to protect your rights. First thing's first — you need to seek medical treatment and talk to an experienced lawyer.

The lawyers at Elkins & Freedman offer experienced representation for premises liability, slip-and-falls, and other serious personal injury claims. We understand the challenges injured victims face and are ready to fight to help you get the full compensation you deserve. We have several office locations throughout South Florida, including ones in Orlando, Palm Beach County, Celebration and more.

What Should I Do After A Slip-And-Fall Accident?

There's no way to prepare for an accident, but when it happens you should know what to do immediately following the incident. Here's a list of next steps to take after an accident:

1) Take pictures of the "dangerous" area where the accident happened.

2) Exchange information with any witnesses who saw the incident.

3) Take photos of your injuries.

4) Call for medical help.

5) Talk to an attorney at Elkins & Freedman.

It is extremely critical you call a lawyer as soon as possible after your accident. The sooner our team can get to work investigating your accident, causes and liability — the better. Visit our slip-and-fall FAQ for more information.
