What to Do After a Slip & Fall Incident in Brookline

If you have been involved in a slip and fall accident in Brookline, you need to take some steps to ensure your personal injury claim goes smoothly. Your attorney will advise you on specific actions, but here are some tips for immediate steps:

  • Go to the hospital. When you fall you might feel sore, but don’t feel the need to seek medical attention. Some slip and fall injuries might not display symptoms for hours or days, especially if you have hit your head. No matter how great you feel, you need to get checked out by your doctor or head to nearby Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, so you have medical documentation for your injury.
  • Gather photographic evidence. Take pictures or videos with your cell phone of where the accident happened and any hazard that led to you slipping. Property owners are motivated to remove the hazard when they learn there was an injury, so immediate photos help provide support for your case.
  • Only speak with your attorney about your case. It’s natural that you might want to share the details of your slip and fall accident with those close to you or on social media, but this isn’t in your best interest. The defense might learn of you comments and use them against you.
