Slip and fall accidents occur much more often than most people may believe. In Colorado Springs, there are various ways someone may suffer serious injuries from slipping and falling. For instance, individuals may slip and fall on snow and ice, in stores on spilled products, or over debris or trash on other’s property. This is why our local attorneys want you to know what to do after a slip and fall accident in Colorado Springs.

Calling for Help After an Accident

If you have been in a slip and fall accident and you believe you have suffered any type of injury, the first thing you should do is call for help.  Even if you are not sure you sustained serious injuries, ask a landowner or business employee for help and have them document what happened.

If you think that you suffered any type of serious injury, call 911 and get an ambulance or paramedic on route immediately. Not only does this get medical help on the way to document your claim, but it can also ensure you are safe.  Some brain injuries can take hours or days to manifest themselves, especially brain bleeds.  Delays in getting medical help could mean life or death. Therefore, if you have slipped and fallen, make sure to get help by calling 911 and asking for police and EMS.

Seek Medical Attention

Even if help arrives and you are still not sure if you are hurt, get evaluated by EMS.  f they suggest that you should go to a hospital, go to the hospital.  They are professionals and, while you think you may be fine, some back or head injuries may not be obvious at first. However, some of these injures may require surgery later. Explain your injuries and everything that is hurting or even feels off.  Do not hold back, but also do not exaggerate.  Make sure all injuries are documented and treated.

Take Photographs After a Slip and Fall Incident

If you are able, another step you should take after a slip and fall accident is taking as many photos as you can, especially of what you slipped on, any warning signs, and any other possible factors which may be useful in your case.  Also take a photo or video of your injuries if you can. It is important that you keep any photographs that you take —do not delete anything, even if it is a “bad” or blurry photo.  This could be spoliation of evidence and hurt your case.  Make sure to turn over all photographs to our lawyers to help your case.

Follow Treatment Plan

Do not miss any appointments and follow all orders. This includes getting the right amount of rest and relaxation, as well as taking any medication that the providers ask you to take.

Keep a Journal

It is important to document all of your appoints and where, who, when, and what they did at the appointment.  Note any days off of work and write down why you took off.  Also note your injuries and how you are feeling during the day, including any disability you had or any activities you could not do because of the injuries.

“Everyone at Springs Law Group is very professional, provides quick responses, communicates with patience and kindness, and remained detail oriented the entire time.”

I was uneasy about reaching out to a law firm after being in an accident that left me injured and my vehicle totaled. I don’t care for the idea of suing for what was very clearly an accident. However, after learning more about the overall process of working with a professional team to navigate the murky waters of the insurance world, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the experience wasn’t as gross as I’d originally felt about it. Everyone at Springs Law Group is very professional, provides quick responses, communicates with patience and kindness, and remained detail oriented the entire time.
