If you do happen to slip, trip or fall at a business, there are several steps you should take, read on to learn more.
- Seek immediate medical attention. If needed, call an ambulance or go the emergency room.
- Report the injury to a manager and insist on filing an incident report. If you cannot do this immediately because you are seeking medical attention, then return to the business and report this injury as soon as possible.
