Slip & Fall

While a slip and fall incident may initially be brushed off as a minor accident, the reality is that such accidents can have severe consequences, even if the victim doesn’t show immediate signs of injury. Whether the slip and fall occur in a public place or a friend’s home, the immediate response is often to downplay it as a clumsy moment, unless there’s an obvious injury like a broken bone. Regardless of the apparent severity of the injury, it’s crucial to take the following steps as quickly as possible:

  • For severe injuries, call 911 immediately.
  • Assess the pain and determine if a hospital visit is necessary for less severe injuries.
  • Take pictures of the area where the fall occurred, documenting any visible causes like spills or uneven surfaces.
  • Record the names of witnesses who were present during the incident.
  • Keep a comprehensive record of all doctor visits, medications, and paperwork.
  • Contact Attorney Garnes to discuss the situation and determine necessary actions for compensation.
