In this video, I'm going to share with you what to do after a slip and fall or trip and fall accident.

Step #1: Photograph the Scene - Take as many photos of the area where the incident occurred. Note any hazards, such as a snow and ice, wet floor, defects, holes or a loose step.

Step #2: Report the Incident - Make sure the incident is reported to the property owner or manager. If applicable fill out an incident or accident report and be accurate in describing what caused you to fall, BUT TAKE A PICTURE OF IT BEFORE GIVING IT BACK. Also get the name and contact number of the person who you gave the report to.

Step #3: Seek Medical Attention - Even if your injuries seem minor, it's important to get them checked out by a medical professional.

Step #4: Gather Witness Information - Get the names and contact information of any witnesses who saw the incident.

Step #5: Consult with a CT Slip and Fall or Trip and Fall Lawyer ASAP- A slip and fall or trip and fall lawyer can protect you and help maximize the amount of money you can get for your case.
