Personal Injury & Wrongful Death
After seeking proper medical attention, you should:
A) Locate the purchase invoice/receipt for the ladder;
B) Take photographs of the ladder, including all labels on the ladder, the accident site including the ground or floor area where the ladder was positioned, and your injuries, including abrasions, lacerations and bruises;
C) Locate all warranties, literature and materials which you received, when you purchased the ladder;
D) Keep, store and safely preserve the ladder and do not release possession of the ladder to anyone; and
E) Notify the store where you purchased the ladder, but do not give any statements to any other party or insurance company and, again, equally important, do not release possession of the ladder to anyone.
