I fell at a Washington business and the manager wants me to fill out some paperwork known as an incident report. What should I do?
You should probably fill it out. The reason for that is you want to make sure that the business knows you were injured. You want to report it, the time that you got injured. You want to do it that day, not later if possible. You want to make sure that they have paperwork on this. You should get a copy. Obviously, first and foremost tell the truth. Make sure that everything that you say is accurate. Make sure that you get a copy of it, and also make sure that you get that person’s business card or their name. Unfortunately, businesses often lose paperwork or they can’t find it or something happens to it, so it’s important that you do that, but that you have your own copy. We’ve done these cases for years, they’re tricky cases, but if you’ve been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, you’re entitled to compensation. Call us and see if we can help you.
