For example, if it snows and a restaurant doesn’t shovel the sidewalk promptly and regularly, as well as salt the ground to prevent ice from forming, then your fall was probably preventable. Documenting the accident can be the difference between winning and losing, so be sure to keep detailed records. Use your cell phone or a camera to take pictures when it is appropriate. Take notes every time you talk with someone about the accident so that you’ll know when you spoke, the name of the person you talked to, and the gist of the conversation. If you meet with someone in person, get a business card and save it. Most of all, however, if you have seriously been injured due to a fall resulting from a trip or a slip, call our office to discuss your options.
