Things to Do After a Slip and Fall Accident in Milton

If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident in Milton that might have been caused by another party’s negligence, your next steps can help provide support for your case. Your attorney will direct you on specifics, but here are some tips to make sure you get the compensation for which you might be entitled:

  • Visit a doctor immediately. You might feel a little sore after a fall and feel like you don’t need medical attention, but you still must get checked out by a physician. Some injuries don’t show up for a few hours or days. You can head to your own doctor, or visit one at nearby Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Milton.
  • Photograph your injuries and the scene of the accident. Photographic evidence to support your slip and fall case is always best. Take photos of the hazard that caused your fall, the scene of your fall, and any injuries. If your injuries start to swell, bruise, or change, make sure to take photos as changes occur.
  • Don’t speak to others about your accident. It’s natural to want to discuss your accident with friends and family, and if you have severe injuries, they will certainly ask you how they happened. Don’t discuss the details of your fall with family or friends, and don’t post details on social media. The defense might come across these comments during their investigation and attempt to use them against you. It’s best to only discuss your slip and fall accident and injury with your lawyer.
