Slip & Fall Victim Common Mistakes People Make

Slip and Fall Cases

Slip and falls are common in public places such as stores, restaurants, and hotels, and can cause serious injuries that can affect the victim's quality of life.

Slip and Fall Common Mistakes

One of the biggest mistakes that people make when they experience a slip and fall is failing to report the incident to the manager or owner of the establishment. Many people are embarrassed when they fall and may feel like it was their fault. However, it's important to report the incident to the manager, as they are responsible for ensuring that the premises are safe for customers.

Failing to report the incident can also make it difficult to gather evidence that can support your case. For example, if there were witnesses to the fall, they may have left the scene by the time you decide to pursue legal action. Additionally, if you don't report the incident, there may be no record of the fall, making it difficult to prove that it occurred.

Legal Action

If you do decide to pursue legal action after a slip and fall, it's essential to gather as much evidence as possible. This includes taking photos of the area where the fall occurred, getting the contact information of any witnesses, and seeking medical attention immediately. It's also important to keep a record of any expenses related to the fall, such as medical bills and lost wages.
