General Instructions for Fort Lauderdale Slip and Fall Injury Clients

guidance and advice grapicWhat you do and don’t do can have a very large impact on the outcome of any slip and fall lawsuit you choose to pursue in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. In some situations, your actions following a slip and fall accident may negate many of your legal options. There are three things you should never do in any slip and fall situation.

  • Never give any statement be it written, oral, or recorded to anyone without first consulting your attorney.
  • If you don’t remember something, say you don’t remember. Be careful that you never make any statement that is untrue to anyone, especially a doctor.
  • If you have to change your address or job, make sure you let your lawyer know immediately.

If you are in pain after a slip and fall accident, make sure you see your doctor immediately. It is very important to keep all of your doctor’s appointments and follow the advice your doctor gives you, even if you start feeling better. No matter what happens you should never miss a doctor's appointment. When you miss an appointment, you are telling everyone that your injuries are not that bad, and you really don’t need a doctor’s assistance. If you skip doctor’s appointments, then insurance companies and the jury are not going to believe that you have any pain or suffering.

The only people you should discuss your case with are your doctor and your lawyer. This includes family members, friends, and especially employers. Until your case is settled, it is vitally important that you restrict your discuss of your case with your lawyer and your doctor.
