After a Trip and Fall Accident | Fort Worth Premises Liability Attorneys
To have a successful slip and fall case, you need to prove that the property owner was negligent which created a dangerous situation. After being injured, your health is the number one priority. If you are able at the time of the incident, consider the following to ensure a successful outcome:
-Seek Medical Attention
Your first priority should be to tend to any injuries you have incurred and make sure you pursue any further medical complications. It is also important to have your injuries documented by a medical professional, taking note of any bruises, cuts, breaks, swelling, and other conditions. Keep the documentation received from the medical provider, as well as any bills. If your physician does not take photographs of your injuries, you should take them yourself and save them in case they are needed later.
-Inspect and Document the Scene
Take pictures of the area of the accident, noting any conditions that may have caused the accident. This is incredibly helpful, regardless of whether the conditions were temporary or permanent, such as a puddle of melted ice in comparison to a leaking machine or a broken step.
If anyone was around before, during, or after the incident, note their name, address, and phone number as well as any statements made by the property owner.
