Obtain immediate medical attention
Your first priority after an accident is your health. Do not delay in obtaining the care you need. If you suffered a serious injury, call 911 for emergency treatment. You should also seek follow-up care after a slip and fall accident.
Collect evidence that supports your case
In many cases, the cause of a slip and fall accident is quickly cleared. A property owner who ignored spilled liquids, loose rugs, construction debris or slippery surfaces has every incentive to repair these problems quickly to cover evidence of negligence and neglect. Before the problem is fixed, collect the crucial evidence that supports your claim, such as:
- Photographs of the hazardous condition
- Photos of your injuries
- Contact information for eyewitnesses to the accident
- Doctor and hospital reports regarding your injuries
We conduct a thorough investigation of your case, which includes collecting important evidence of the conditions that caused the accident and your resulting injuries.
Contact a Fort Myers injury attorney as soon as possible
Time is of the essence to assert your rights and recover compensation from negligent parties after a trip, slip or fall accident. Florida law imposes strict statutes of limitations on filing claims against wrongdoers in civil court. If you miss the deadline, you could permanently lose your chance to collect damages for your injuries.
