Birmingham Slip & Fall Accident Lawyer
Fighting to Get You the Compensation You Are Owed
A slip and fall accident may sound minor to some, but if you or a loved one has been injured in a store, business, or other property after tripping on a product or slipping on a wet floor, the consequences can be serious.

Gathering Evidence is Critical
As in all personal injury cases, whether you have sufficient evidence can make or break cases of this type. For example, if you were injured after slipping on a damaged sidewalk, photographic evidence of the defect is extremely important.
If you are seriously hurt after your slip and fall accident, seek medical attention immediately. However, if you are relatively unhurt, we recommend doing as much of the following as possible after a slip and fall:
- Take photographs of the accident scene, including the cause of your slip and fall (water on the floor, a pothole, etc.).
- Speak to any witnesses and take note of their contact information.
- File an accident report with any staff, security guards, or other personnel on-site.
- Write down how you remember the accident occurring while your memory is fresh.
- Visit a doctor for a checkup to determine the scope of your injuries.
- Contact a local slip and fall lawyer for legal advice.
Unfortunately for victims, it can be extremely easy to get rid of evidence, particularly if the slip and fall is due to icy conditions or another temporary defect. Alternately, if the issues were related to design or construction, these issues could be fixed before you have a chance to pursue an investigation. To ensure that you have everything you need to get the compensation to which you are entitled, contact our Birmingham slip and fall attorney as soon after your accident as possible. We can collect evidence on your behalf if you are incapacitated or otherwise require assistance.
