What to Do After a Slip & Fall Accident in Laurel

Get the Help You Need from McGowan & Cecil, LLC

  1. It is imperative that you PRESERVE any evidence and ACT immediately to secure the scene before it is "compromised."– TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE.
    • Document what happened to you. If you don't have a pad and pen, you can use your cell phone to take notes and voice memos.
    • Photograph the dangerous condition that caused you to slip and/or fall. It should be clear what the cause of the fall was.
    • Get the names, addresses and phone numbers of any potential witnesses.
    • Get the names of employees on duty who may have witnessed the fall.
    • Note what you were wearing that day.
    • Were there any warning signs? Take note of the situation overall.
  2. REPORT the fall to the manager or store owner, but DO NOT GIVE any extensive statements or details until you are in the presence of an attorney.
  3. GET medical attention ASAP. Any delay in seeking medical attention can have an adverse affect on your case. Even if your injury seems minor, immediately seek a medical examination and ask your doctor to provide as much detail as possible about your injuries.
  4. CALL an experienced personal injury lawyer in Laurel with a track record of successfully representing victims of slip and fall accidents.
