2-Seek Medical attention-Get the medical information from your employer- If you have a bad accident call the ambulance -Do not let your co-workers or friends take you to the hospital. Ask for your medical records.

4-Never give a recorded statement or talked excessively of your accident with the insurance company. Do not sign any documents to anyone. Do not give anyone medical authorization to anyone until you are represented. You don't want to lose your rights.

1-Slip-and-fall accidents can lead to serious injuries. When you are injured as the result of a slip-and-fall accident, the owner of the premises -- whether it is a shopping mall, hotel, parking garage or restaurant -- may be at fault
