What to Do After a Slip and Fall Accident

The outcome of your case often depends on the first few steps you take immediately after the accident. If possible, here are some things you need to do when you are injured on someone else’s property:

Go to the ER Immediately

If you are seriously injured, do not try to get up after your fall. Instead, call 911 and get emergency treatment right away. Do not delay in getting medical attention. The longer you wait to go to the ER or doctor’s office, the more difficult it becomes to prove that the accident caused your injuries.

Request an Accident Report from the Property Owner

All property owners or business managers have a legal duty to fill out and submit an accident report if a customer or visitor gets hurt. Make sure the owner fills out a report and sends you a copy. Look at the details of the report to verify that they are accurate and the report is complete. 

Consult a Slip and Fall Lawyer in California

Before you move forward with your personal injury claim, you may want to consult a slip and fall lawyer. An attorney can review the facts of the case, explore your legal options, and guide you through the claims process. They can also represent you and negotiate a fair settlement on your behalf. Instead of talking to the insurer, let your lawyer do the talking for you. 

Establishing Liability in a Personal Injury Case

To win your case, we must prove that someone else is liable for your injuries and subsequent damages. Our legal team will perform a thorough investigation to uncover evidence of fault and liability. Some of the evidence we gather during the investigation may include

  • Eyewitnesses
  • Accident or police reports
  • Photos or video footage
  • Expert testimony
  • Clues at the scene of the accident
  • Medical reports

We use the evidence to build your case and prove that your injuries occurred due to the at-fault party's negligence. Therefore, you need to keep records of all correspondence, medical bills, and other documents that we can use to support your claim. 

Damages You Can Claim in a Slip and Fall Case

The damages you can claim in a slip and fall accident case depend on the circumstances of the accident, who is at fault, and the extent of your injuries and financial losses. Damages may include economic, non-economic (general), or punitive damages.

Economic Losses

Economic damages are financial losses that we can calculate. They may include living adjustments, property repairs, rehabilitation, medical bills, benefits, bonuses, or lost wages. They make up a significant portion of your claim and gives us an exact idea of how much the at-fault party owes you. 

Non-economic Losses

Non-economic or general losses are damages that impact your life or your household. General damages may include disability, loss of consortium (companionship), loss of parental support, emotional distress, or physical suffering. While these damages are not calculable, we can assign a dollar value to them and add them to your claim.

Punitive Damages

If your injuries were caused due to the property owner’s gross negligence or careless actions, the court might award punitive damages. Punitive damages are awarded as a way of punishing the at-fault party or making them an example. These types of damages are not related to your injuries or financial losses and are wholly decided by the court. 

Wrongful Death

If you lost a loved one in an accident, you or your family may be entitled to pursue compensation for death-related losses. Damages in a wrongful death case include burial and funeral expenses, lost household income, pre-death medical expenses, or pain and suffering. 

Our goal is to get you the maximum compensation based on your actual losses and not what the insurer is willing to settle for. Don’t let the insurance company determine the value of your case. Our law firm can help you estimate the value of your claim to ensure that your losses are covered. 

Working to Protect the Community

We are proud that our legal work deters careless and negligent acts from repeating which protects the community from future harm.
