What to Do After a Slip and Fall at a Grocery Store

What to Do After a Slip and Fall at a Grocery Store

While a slip and fall accident at the grocery store may not seem like something you need to worry about, these common accidents can be extremely dangerous and can lead to very serious injuries. When you’re shopping at your local market, you’re probably not overly concerned about your safety. The fact is, however, that – when not well maintained – grocery stores can harbor slip-and-fall dangers, including wet and slippery aisles. If someone else’s negligence leaves you injured in a slip and fall accident, you need the professional legal counsel of an experienced Kansas personal injury attorney

What to Do Next?

If you’ve slipped and fallen at the grocery store, you may be at a loss regarding how best to proceed. You may even be inclined to blame the entire thing on your own clumsiness and to proceed from there. If the store’s negligence, however, caused you to be injured, it’s in your best interest to pursue the compensation necessary to pursue your fullest recovery. There are several steps you can take to strengthen your case, including:

  • Document the Scene of the Accident – Use your phone to take pictures that identify what caused you to fall and the surrounding area. 
  • Report the Incident to the Store Manager – Let the manager know what happened as soon as you can. You may even save someone else from being injured. 
  • Jot Down the Details – As soon as you can, jot down exactly what happened, using as many details as you can remember. In the upset of an accident, it’s easy to lose sight of information that could be beneficial to your case. Writing things down while they’re still fresh in your mind is a great way to memorialize important details.
  • Obtain Eyewitness Testimony – If there are any eyewitness, ask them to provide you with their testimony and their contact information.
  • Seek Medical Attention – Always put your health and well-being first. If you’re seriously injured, enlist a bystander to take care of the previous steps, and obtain the medical attention you need immediately. Even if you don’t believe your injuries are serious, it’s in your best interest – and the best interest of your claim – to seek the care of a medical professional. The fact is that serious injuries, including traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries, can hide in plain sight until they become more serious and more difficult to treat.
