Steps to Take After a Slip and Fall Accident in Brighton

If you have been involved in a slip and fall accident in Brighton, you might wonder about next steps. Your lawyer will give you the specifics, but here are some preliminary tips to ensure that you avoid some common issues that come to light in personal injury lawsuits:

  • Seek immediate medical attention. A strong case that proves a property owner’s negligence caused you harm is necessary for the court to award you damages. Seeking medical attention is the first step that needs to happen, so your injuries are documented by a medical professional. You may feel like you don’t need to see a doctor after a slip and fall, but you should get checked out fairly soon. Some injuries, especially head, neck, and brain injuries do not show up for days or weeks. Head to your regular doctor or visit nearby St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center.
  • Take photos . Use your cell phone to take photos of the hazard that caused your fall and any visible injuries so you have documentation for the court.
  • Don’t talk about your accident with others. Avoid discussing the details of your case with friends or family or posting about it on social media. Doing so might put you in a situation where you admit some fault for your slip and fall accident, which might harm your case.
