Should I wait to see if my pain goes away before seeking medical attention following a slip and fall?
Absolutely not. Oftentimes we’ve found that insurance companies use the fact that you did not seek immediate medical attention when evaluating your claim. Additionally, we’ve found that the amount of time between the slip and fall incident and the time you actually did go seek medical attention can be used against you in devaluing your claim. If you’re experiencing pain as a result of a slip and fall, I highly advise you seek medical attention immediately.
