6 Steps You Need to Take to File a Slip and Fall Claim in Florida
If you have suffered a slip and fall injury in Florida, you may be confused about what steps to take in order to file a slip and fall claim. Read on to find out the six steps to take after any slip and fall injury. Then contact Casas Injury Lawyers in West Palm Beach, Florida, to consult with them on your premises liability case.
Report Your Injuries
The property owner or manager should be notified directly. They will document the incident and they can contact emergency medical help if needed. It is recommended that you request your own copy of their documentation and that you decline their requests to sign anything until you have consulted a legal professional.
Collect Witness Information
Identifying potential witnesses and getting their contact information following the incident is very important because they could be impossible to locate later. The injured party is advised not to discuss specifics of the incident with witnesses because their statements could later be used against them.
Photo/Video Documentation of Scene and Injuries
Details like the specific hazard that you encountered will likely not be present to document later. Any photos or videos you are able to obtain that can help more accurately recreate the scene will be invaluable for your case.
Take Detailed Notes
In addition to the photos and videos, you should keep written documentation of any and all details relevant to your accident and injuries. Your notes should provide a highly detailed account of just how the incident occurred.
Seek Medical Treatment
If emergency medical treatment is needed, the property owner or manager should have them dispatched upon notification of the incident. If you choose not to receive emergency services, you should make an appointment with your primary care physician as soon as possible.
It is also important to notify medical personnel that your injuries occurred due to a slip and fall incident. You should ask them to document all injuries no matter how minor they may seem.
