Common Mistakes After a Slip and Fall Injury

If you slip and fall in a store or public area, there’s one thing you need to do—that most people don’t do. Do you know what it is? A Norcross premises liability lawyer explains in this video.

One of the main mistakes people make after a slip and fall is that they don’t take down the names of any witnesses. There are a number of reasons why people don’t do this, but the fact is that if you’ve been injured and want to make a strong case, you need witnesses.

The other mistake that many people make is that they don’t go to the doctor even though they’re injured. Maybe they have gone to the emergency room after the initial injury, and are now due for follow-up visits. They may keep waiting on the insurance company to tell them where to go or tell them they are going to take care of their medical bills. The insurance company may say, “Well, we can’t guarantee we’re going to pay your medical bills” or they deny the case altogether. In this situation, many people quit going to the doctor even though they’re hurt.
