Should I Report an Injury I Received on Someone’s Property?

Published on Nov 2, 2018 at 5:08 pm in Premises Liability.

You should always notify someone if you are injured on property or premises you do not personally own and ask for an incident report to be made.  For instance, if you slip and fall on ice, but don’t think you are injured, you should still notify an employee and ask for an incident report to be completed.  If you are engaging in activities on someone’s property and are injured because of an another person’s negligence or recklessness, you should report your injury immediately and ask for an incident report to be made.  You should always report the incident and ask for the incident to be documented, even in situations where you don’t feel immediate pain or feel like you were injured!

Some things to consider in addition to making a report:  First, look to see if there are any witnesses who saw the incident.  Ask for their names and contact information, and ask for that information to be put into the report.  Make sure you either ask for a copy of the report, or write down the witnesses’ name, contact information, and a description of what they saw.  People are generally helpful and are willing to give you information, and eyewitness testimony is crucial in cases involving a premises injury.
