What Is a Slip and Fall Accident?
A slip and fall accident is any incident that occurs when someone slips, trips, or falls due to a hazard or safety risk on another person's property. These types of accidents can occur in any public place, from a grocery store aisle to a hotel room.
Common slip and fall accident causes include:
- Defective or poorly maintained flooring
- Defective or poorly maintained stairs

What Should You Do After a Slip and Fall Accident?
Experiencing a slip and fall accident can be disorienting, but taking the right steps afterward is crucial for your well-being and potential legal claim. Here's a guide on what to do:
Seek Medical Attention: Your health is the top priority. Even if your injuries seem minor, it's essential to seek medical attention immediately. Some injuries may not be immediately apparent, and a medical professional can assess and document your condition.
Report the Incident: If your slip and fall occurred on someone else's property, report the incident to the property owner, manager, or another responsible party. Ensure that the details of the incident are accurately recorded.
Gather Evidence: If possible, gather evidence at the scene. Take photos of the hazardous condition that caused your fall, including wet floors, uneven surfaces, or obstacles. Collect contact information from any witnesses who saw the incident.
Preserve Clothing and Footwear: Keep the clothing and footwear you were wearing at the time of the accident. These items may serve as evidence, especially if they show signs of the conditions that contributed to the fall.
Document Your Recollection: Write down your recollection of the incident as soon as possible while the details are fresh in your memory. Include information about what you were doing, how the accident happened, and any conversations you had with the property owner or others afterward.
Avoid Giving Statements: Refrain from providing detailed statements or signing any documents without consulting a slip and fall attorney. Insurance adjusters may seek information that could be used against you.
Consult with an Attorney: Reach out to a Montgomery County slip and fall attorney to discuss your case. An experienced attorney can help you understand your rights, evaluate the strength of your claim, and guide you through the legal process.
