Building a strong slip-and-fall claim

Accidents occur every day. In many cases, the accident can result in negative physical, and emotional, effects.

Particularly in the case of a slip-and-fall accident, it may be possible to seek recompense through a claim. To build a strong case, the claim must contain a few items.

Collect reports

After a slip-and-fall accident at a facility, the facility should produce an accident report. If possible, secure a copy of this report directly after the accident. In case you cannot obtain an immediate report, follow up as soon as possible.

Medical records

As with any personal injury claim, medical records are key. They help create a paper trail and a timeline of the accident. The records also aid in validating the injury claim and determining the amount of damages due. Even when parties do not plan to make a claim immediately after an accident, the records can help substantiate the claim within the statute of limitations. In some cases, a party may not discover an extensive injury until later down the line. Medical records can help assert such claims.

Witness statements

Eyewitness testimony can be quite beneficial to a claim. If you have an eyewitness to your accident willing to testify, try to collect his or her statement as soon as possible after the incident. Sometimes details may escape the person once the dust settles. Having the statement upfront helps avoid forgotten facts, as well as supports the statement's validity.

Though these main aspects can help to create a solid foundation, any evidence you gather can be beneficial. It may also be helpful to consult with an attorney to determine the best course of action in your particular case.
