Yet, many times slip and fall accidents cause serious injuries, that might even be fatal, especially in older adults. In fact, more than 40 adults over the age of 65 die from injuries related to a slip and fall each month in Massachusetts and unintentional falls are responsible for more than 80% of hospitalizations in older adults. Although seniors have a high risk for falls, those of every age group might experience a slip and fall anywhere.

Steps After a Slip and Fall Accident in Dover

If you, your child, and elder you love, or another family member has slipped and fell in Dover, you might be concerned about next steps. Your lawyer will give you specific details, but here are some immediate tips to help your case go smoothly:

  • Visit your doctor as soon as possible if you did not go immediately after your fall. A strong case hinges on proving that your slip and fall accident caused your injury; medical documentation helps support that causal connection. If your doctor isn’t available, head to the emergency room at nearby Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital in Needham.
  • Take photos of your injuries with your cell phone so you have documentation. Also, take pictures of the dangerous conditions that led to your fall, if you have the opportunity.
  • Don’t chat about your fall with others and risk admitting some fault for your accident and don’t post about your accident on social media. It’s in your best interest to only talk about your accident with your lawyer.
