A: The first and most important thing is to seek medical care. Call an ambulance, if necessary. Be sure to follow up with a family doctor and/or a specialist. Many slip and fall injuries result in head trauma and therefore seeing a neurologist may be necessary.
In addition, the single most litigated issue in a slip and fall or trip and fall case is what actually caused the injury. The stronger the proof of the existence of water, food, etc., the better. Pictures, video, eyewitness testimony, and the store/business’ incident report will all be important.
