3 Things Not to Do After a New York Slip and Fall

Often, a New York slip and fall attorney will provide you with a list of things to do after a fall injury to protect your legal rights to a potential recovery. That is an important list and one that we also provide our clients. However, it is equally as important to learn what you should not do after a slip and fall.

Specifically, it is important that you:

  • Do Not Delay Medical Treatment. A delay in medical treatment may be suspicious to an insurance company or jury. A defendant in a slip and fall case may use your delay in treatment as evidence that your injuries were not so bad or were caused by something else other than the accident.
  • Do Not Discard Evidence. Evidence such as pictures of the crime scene or pictures of your initial injuries may be critical to your later recovery.
  • Do Not Delay a Legal Consultation. The sooner that you consult a New York injury attorney, the sooner your lawyer can advise you and help you protect your legal rights.


For more information about what to do, and what not to do, after a slip and fall injury, please contact an experienced New York slip and fall lawyer at 1-800-362-9329.
