Take notes.

Write down the names and contact information of any witnesses at the scene who saw the fall. It is also a good idea to jot down any details about the incident that could be important later such as the type of shoes you were wearing or what you were doing when you fell.

See a doctor.

It may be tempting to just go home after falling in a public place, but failing to seek medical treatment is one of the worst mistakes you can make after a slip and fall accident. Seeking medical help allows you to get documentation (such as X-rays) of the trauma on the day it occurred and also proves that you took your health seriously.

Consult an injury attorney.

If you were severely injured or are unable to return to work after a slip and fall accident, you should seek the advice of an experienced attorney.
