If you’ve suffered a slip-and-fall injury on someone else’s property, there are steps you should take immediately after the accident.

To win a slip-and-fall case, you will need to prove that there was a dangerous condition that led to your accident. You will also need to prove that the owner knew about the dangerous condition and didn’t fix it.

According to FindLaw.com, one of the most important things you can do is to document everything. Make sure to write down all details from the accident, including how you fell, what led to it, what the conditions were like and if there were any warning signs to alert you or others to danger.

You should also seek medical attention as soon as possible. Even if you weren’t seriously injured, FindLaw.com recommends seeing the doctor so you can get any injuries diagnosed and documented.

You should also contact a lawyer as soon as possible. Your lawyer can help guide you through the process and determine what steps you should take.
