Thank you very much for handling our case. You helped us through a very rough and scary period. We feel we now have a promising future from a terrible accident. Without your guidance we would not be able to comfortably put our lives back together.

Slip, Trip and Fall: What should I do?
SLIP AND FALL ACCIDENT: WHAT SHOULD I DO?
Go to the hospital emergency room, and tell the doctor about every area of your body in which you are experiencing pain.
Immediately report your accident to the property owner or property security company. Be sure to get a copy of the accident report.
Try to get the names and telephone numbers of any people who may have witnessed your fall.
Place the shoes and all the articles of clothing you were wearing at the time of the accident in a sealed plastic bag to preserve any materials or substances that could relate to your fall.
If you have suffered any visible damage to your body (i.e., cuts, scrapes and bruises) have someone take photographs or permit an investigator to take them.
Do not discuss or make any statements about your case with any employees or insurance representatives of the property owner, without first speaking with your lawyer.
Do not accept any forms of payment or sign any releases without speaking to a lawyer. Doing so could waive your legal rights.
If you know of any prior accidents in the same location, disclose the information to a lawyer.
