Why Hire an Attorney After a Slip and Fall Accident in St. Louis?

After being injured in a slip and fall accident on someone else’s property, you can’t always rely on property owners and businesses to hold themselves accountable for your injury, and they will likely contact their own legal team or insurance company before you even make it to the hospital.

What to Do Immediately After a Slip and Fall Accident in St. Louis

  1. Check the floor. Look to see if there was something on the floor, if there was a crack or defect in the floor, or another dangerous condition. If you have a camera phone with you, take a picture.
  2. File an incident report. Contact a manager or supervisor immediately. Get the manager’s card or at least their name and phone number. If the manager prepares a report at the scene, make sure that you get a copy of the report. If they tell you they will not give you a copy of the report, please ensure you get everyone’s name and try to take a picture of them or their name tag.
  3. Witnesses. Obtain the names and telephone numbers of any witnesses to the accident.
  4. Seek medical attention. Seek immediate medical attention for any injuries you have sustained. In fact, you should get checked out by a doctor even if you feel fine.
