What do I do after a slip and fall accident?

After a slip and fall accident, it is important to take the following steps to protect your legal rights:

  • Contact the owner or person in charge of the location at which you fell and insist they prepare an incident report. Without such a written report, there may be no evidence of your accident and the responsible parties may often deny the incident even occurred at their property. The report should identify who owns or manages the property, the date and time of the fall, the condition that caused you to fall, any witnesses and your injuries.
  • If possible, take photos of the area of the fall (cell phones are good for this purpose) and later of your injuries.
  • If available, obtain a copy of video footage of the incident. Often, and particularly in grocery and department stores, video cameras record events in the store. These videos frequently capture footage of your fall and can be very valuable and persuasive if you pursue your slip and fall claim.
  • It is often difficult to determine the full nature and extent of your injuries at the scene of a fall. If you think you may have been injured in any way, call for an ambulance and seek medical treatment immediately.
  • It is very important to get the contact information of any witnesses to the accident. This is because the responsible parties may claim you did not actually fall or they were not aware of the condition that caused you to fall prior to the accident. If other people were in the store were you fell, for example, they might be able to remember your fall and whether they had seen the condition that caused your fall (such as water on the floor) before your accident.

The primary way a person injured in a fall can show the owner or manager of the property is responsible is to show they had “notice” of the condition that caused the slip and fall, before it happened.

Surprisingly, you as the injured person has the burden of proof to show this! This can be done by showing prior falls at that same location.

This is one reason many stores, particularly grocery and department stores, have what are called “sweep sheets.” These documents record the time, duration and frequency of floor inspections, cleaning and sweeping by the responsible parties. They are used by the responsible parties to try to show a lack of prior “notice” of the condition that caused the fall.

Our Sacramento slip and fall attorneys can gather this and other evidence for you to build a solid premises liability case against the party responsible for your injury.

  • Our prayers were answered with John.

    “I chose John Miller’s Law firm after deciding from a list of twenty six attorneys. The blk. Mold case he just settled for my wife and I was fast and professional. If you really want a class A attorney, then Miller Law is the one. When you don’t hear from him , he know he is working diligently on your case, If you want excellent results on your case, let the man work! There’s a lot of Law Firms out there, but only one true heavy hitter, and that’s Miller Law. Our prayers were answered with John.”

  • I feel so fortunate that John took my case. I will be forever grateful.

    “I feel so fortunate that John took my case. I will be forever grateful. I’m a single , working Mom with teenage boys which is stressful enough. We were living in horrible conditions in Redding Ca, landlord did nothing to remedy the issues, instead they retaliated. John was so professional , understanding and kind, We met at mediation about 6 weeks after he took me on as a client, he knew the bigger picture with me wasn’t about money, it was about people being treated Ike they are garbage and don’t deserve to live in a safe environment. John did get more money for us than original quote , but the best part he said he would send a letter to the other tenants and offer to help if they needed it. I can finally sleep at night. I feel like I made a great friend. Thank you so much.”

  • He did as he said he would!!

    “Mr.Miller was an awesome lawyer. He treated us Like family. He did exactly what he said he would. I would absolutely refer him to someone looking for a lawyer! Thank you Mr. Miller.”

  • He was patient, kind and extremely professional.

    “Mr. Miller represented me on a mold case against a former landlord, and management company. He was patient, kind and extremely professional. Although my case wasn't one of the biggie gold mine type cases that many attorneys are looking for, he treated me with respect, collegiality and was able to help me get a settlement through mediation that seemed to be the best option for the quagmire of my particular case. One should always hold negative reviews on here in perspective: often people think their cases are slam-dunks, but as we all know, the legal system is overly complex and not as straight-forward as we all would like it to be. Often cases don't turn out as we'd like them to, but I felt that Mr. Miller was above board regarding the overall merits of my case and he tried to be realistic as to the outcome. I would recommend him and/or avail of his services again.”
