If you can get an incident, or accident report, you should get it. However, it is not necessary to have an accident report filed in order to win your slip and fall case. Often times a business will ask, even pressure the injured party, to fill out and sign an accident report after the incident has occurred. You are not required to do so by law. However, if you do choose to fill out the report, it is imperative to accurately explain how you sustained your injuries.
The Most Important Factor: Acting Quickly After a Fall
More important than having an incident report is acting quickly to preserve evidence and get witness statements.
