Have you been injured in a slip and fall accident? These type of accidents are also known as “trip and fall accidents” or “premise liability cases.” These lawsuits come about when a property owner is negligent in the repair or maintenance of their property.
Many people believe that injures are minor within these type of accidents. But that is not always the case, in fact, an injury may show up some time after the time of the accident due to the injury being difficult to detect. You could be seriously injured in this type of accident, depending on the location, the extent of the fall, and your current level of health.

What to Do if You are Injured in a Slip and Fall
Here are the top five things to keep in mind, if you are involved in a slip and fall accident:
- Receive immediate medical attention if necessary.
- Avoid making any detailed statements regarding your accident
- Write down the names of the property owner, if possible
- Collect the names and contact information of any witnesses
- Take photos of your injuries as well as the accident scene
- Do not give any statement to an insurance adjuster
