A slip and fall accident in Pennsylvania can lead to serious injuries, such as broken bones and traumatic brain injuries, especially for the elderly population.

If you or your loved one has been involved in a slip and fall accident, you should do the following to help preserve your legal rights:
 

  • Take photographs of the accident scene, as well as any visible injuries - if torn carpet, debris or a spilled substance caused you to slip and fall, get photos of the dangerous conditions. If you are not physically able, ask someone who has a camera to take photos and email them to you. Almost everyone has a camera on their cell phone.
  • While the incident is still fresh in your mind, write down everything you remember about the slip and fall accident and everything that has occurred as a result - you'll also want to keep track of your day-to-day pain and recovery process through a daily journal.
  • Get the contact information of anyone who witnessed your slip and fall accident - call or email as soon as possible to confirm that you have the correct contact information.
  • If you speak with the property owner or any employees, take notes about the conversation, including their names and job titles. 


Your next step would be to consult with a Philadelphia slip and fall attorney to determine whether the property owner's negligence was a factor in your slip and fall accident. If so, you may be able to file a personal injury claim to recover compensation for your medical bills and other related expenses.
