What Steps Do I Take After a Slip and Fall Accident?

Innovative Law Firm Serving Greater Vancouver & Areas Throughout British Columbia

Posted: July 20, 2017

When you go to someone's property, whether it’s a commercial business or a private home, you have the right to expect that the premises are safe. It’s the responsibility of the homeowner or business owner to make sure that their property is free of hazardous conditions. If they fail to do so, you or someone you love can suffer an injury because of their negligence, with slip and fall accidents being the most frequent of these injuries.

Slip and fall accidents can cause significant injury. Most causes of these injuries result from unsafe flooring, wet surfaces, uneven concrete, or unsafe stairs. The slip and fall accident lawyers at Stephens and Holman want to let you know that you have options in pursuing a case if you or someone you love is hurt on another’s property. If you suffered a slip and fall injury on another’s property, we recommend following these steps:

  • Seek medical attention right away
  • Gather the name of the property owner or manager
  • Take comprehensive photos of the accident scene
  • Gather names and numbers of any witnesses
  • Contact an experienced slip and fall accident lawyer

If you are unable to gather the appropriate information because of the extent of your injuries, we recommend asking someone to do this for you. Obtaining this information and taking comprehensive pictures of the accident scene and what caused your injury will help your case and allow us to seek the most compensation from your claim.
