Seeking medical treatment after a slip and fall injury is extremely important. Failing to document your injuries will put your case in serious jeopardy.

Question:

What type of medical treatment should I seek after a slip and fall injury?

Answer:

Seeking Medical Treatment After a Slip and Fall InjuryWhat should you do after a trip and fall/slip and fall situation and you end up in a doctor’s office? Number one, tell him or her everything. If you don’t, and you miss something, it can come back to hurt you down the road. For instance, if it turns out later that you find out you have a torn rotator cuff, and for the first three visits to the doctor you said nothing about shoulder pain, they’re going to use that against you, even though it’s very likely that the trip and fall/slip and fall caused it.

Number two, do not embellish. They write down everything you say, and if it turns out that something you say isn’t true, and if we find out that’s the case, we’re probably no longer going to represent you. If another lawyer represents you, they’re probably not going to win.
