Get contact information.

You should obtain contact information for the owner and the insurance company for the property. It is even more important to get contact information for any witnesses at the accident scene. Neutral bystanders who saw what caused your fall can be powerful witnesses in your case, and you need to know how to reach them.  

Save your clothes.

The clothes and shoes you had on when the accident occurred should be preserved. This can avoid arguments by the insurance adjuster that you were partially at fault in causing your injuries.

Retain an attorney.

You should retain an experienced premises liability attorney as soon as possible after your fall. He can collect evidence, obtain witness statements, and negotiate your settlement with the insurance company, so you receive the compensation you deserve. By contacting him right away, you can also obtain advice about mistakes not to make that may hurt your claim.
