Know what to do if you're involved in a slip-and-fall accident

Summer is just around the corner, and with that comes the risk of slipping and falling in many places. From city areas that become slick from fountains to amusement parks with slick gravel and turf, there's always a risk of falling and getting hurt.

Many slip-and-fall accidents happen outside. Different conditions have the potential to lead to accidents, so it's no wonder that the somewhat-unpredictable side of nature would lead to injuries. However, as someone who has fallen, you need to consider if someone should have made changes that could have kept you safer.

For example, if you're in the city and there is a water feature, that feature should be set up in a way that does not cause injuries. If it is placed near marble, which becomes slick when wet, the builder should have known that there was a risk of falls. If you get hurt there, you could have a claim.

What do you need to do after you get hurt in a slip-and-fall accident?

After a slip-and-fall accident, it's important to get documentation for your injuries. If you see your primary care provider or go to the emergency room, keep the information on those visits ready.

You can take this information to your attorney for review. You may also want to take photographs of the scene and get information on how to contact any witnesses that saw you fall and get hurt.
