A: If the accident just occurred, be sure to report the accident to hotel management and then seek proper medical treatment. If the accident occurred some time ago, be sure to speak to a knowledgeable Pennsylvania slip and fall lawyer immediately. Proper and prompt investigation is crucial in these kinds of cases to establish the cause of the accident and obtain proper evidence of the defect which caused the accident.

Slip and fall cases can be difficult to prove. Therefore, it is ideal for slip and fall victims to report the accident to hotel management who will then examine the area and write up an incident report.  Such incident reports often provide valuable information, such as:

  • time of incident,
  • observations of any defects,
  • injuries reported, and
  • name of manager on duty.

However, slip and fall cases can still succeed, even without an incident report.
