What should I do after I fall to protect my rights?
If you’re able, document everything. The best way to do this is to take out your camera our your smart phone and start snapping pictures. Now, if you’re too injured to do this, that’s understandable, but oftentimes we encounter clients who were too embarrassed to do this. We get it; you’ve fallen in public. All you want to do is get out of there. The problem is, under Florida law, you as the injured party have the burden to prove what it is you fell on. If you don’t know, how can I know? Document everything.
