If you are injured on someone else’s property you should seek medical attention if necessary. Whether that requires a trip to your primary doctor or the emergency room, it is essential to seek medical care immediately since the severity of injuries is not always apparent.

In addition to seeking medical care, taking pictures is also important. Along with getting the names and contact information of any person that may have witnessed your injury or has knowledge of the dangerous condition. Most people have a camera on their cell phone, making it even easier for you to take pictures.

If you are injured while on the premises of a business, in most cases the store manager or security officer will make an incident report. Before you leave the premises, be sure you have a copy of the incident report BUT do not sign it.
