The importance of Documentation and Reports
If you are in an accident the most important thing you need to do is document the accident. In a motor vehicle accident, that is going to be a police report that shows that the accident occurred on the day in question. If it is a slip and fall, it needs to be reported to whoever controls the property, for example, a store you would need to notify the manager. If it is a property such as an apartment complex, you are going to need to notify the property management as soon as possible if there was a fall on what day and where the location was, so it can be documented in a report. It is very important that you contact an attorney early in the process so that they are able to give you the best legal advice possible and make sure there is no gap in reporting this incident.
