What Should I Do After a Slip and Fall Accident?

The first thing you should do after any slip and fall in a Sedano’s is make sure that there is documentation of your accident. If you can take pictures of the hazard that caused you to fall. In addition, you should make sure that the store creates an official incident report detailing the way in which your accident took place.

After any accident. It is important to seek any and all appropriate medical treatment. This may include: emergency treatment at an urgent care center or emergency department; follow up visits with your primary care provider; and consultations with medical specialists. Be sure to follow your medical providers’ recommendations for x-rays, imaging, or other diagnostic studies. They may also recommend chiropractic services, physical therapy, or other pain management services. Many injury victims require counseling, therapy, or psychiatric services in order to address the emotional distress of an accident. This is particularly common when an accident occurred in a traumatic manner, or resulted in a wrongful death. Make sure that your mental health is being addressed in addition to your physical health.

Some of the more serious physical injuries that can be caused by slip and fall accidents include the following:

  • Hip fractures
  • Broken bones
  • Serious soft tissue injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Soft tissue injuries

Next, you should consult with an attorney who is experienced in handling slip and fall claims. He or she will identify who is at fault for the accident and negotiate with the insurance company. This process may include proving to the insurance company that their client was, in fact, at fault. It also includes the complicated process of determining the value of your claim. Insurance adjusters are tasked with paying as little as possible on as few claims as possible. Often, an insurance company will claim that your medical treatment was unnecessary or excessive, and attempt to get out of paying those costs. An attorney will protect your financial interests by ensuring that all of your medical bills are paid and that you are fairly compensated for your pain and suffering.

Finally, it is important that you do not discuss your accident with anyone until the case has been resolved. Statements or pictures posted on social media can be used against you, and insurance companies are notorious for finding any way possible to reduce the value of victims’ pain and suffering. Consult with your attorney about what evidence is needed to document your pain. Use discretion in answering any questions about the accident - even to friends and family members.

Mr Nick Gerson has been extremely attentive (even on weekends!) and has been more than willing to take time to answer all my questions.

I am more than pleased to recommend you seek him as your attorney. You will not regret you did!! G.I.B.
Mr. Gerson and all his team gave to my case the careful and professional attention it needed from the beginning to end. Unfortunately, a year ago I was involved in a car accident on the victim side. I have appreciation for the good service that was given to me and my situation. Thanks. Cales & Mr. Hyde (Carlos Andrés García Jiménez), Google User
