If have sustained an injury on a commercial property, we recommend that you never say anything that would indicate the fall was your fault or due to your own negligence. In addition:

  • Report the incident to management and obtain a copy of the incident report
  • Take pictures of your injuries
  • Get medical treatment so your injuries are documented and treated
  • Keep all receipts for medical treatment, medications and any out of pocket expenses that result from the incident
