What To Do After a Slip and Fall at Krystal*

What To Do If You Slip and Fall

From the time you initially slip and fall, you will need to maintain documentation that supports your case and that shows your slip and fall was because of the negligence of an employee.

  • If you suffer a slip and fall, you will need to report it to a manager so an accident report will be completed. You will need to provide detailed statements about what happened and how you were injured.
  • Try to get photos of the accident scene and show where you fell and why you fell. Show there weren’t any wet floor warning signs as well.
  • Ask any witnesses to provide you with written statements and get their names and contact details.
  • Check to see if your fall could have been caught on a surveillance camera as that would be helpful to your claim.
  • Establish medical care right away. Maintain thorough documentation to support your claim, including copies of medical bills, medical records, prescription receipts, proof of lost wages, and so forth.
  • Continue with follow-up care and follow doctor’s orders. Keep copies of physician notes and proof of the physician ordering restrictions or relieving you of work duties.
  • Determine which damages you suffered and make an itemized list along with the value of each damage then calculate the total value of your claim and how much you want to be compensated for your case.
  • Send a demand letter to the company and their insurer to let them know you plan to pursue a claim and will hold them liable for the damages that you suffered in the premises liability case.
