What you should do first
If you have been injured the first thing you should do is report the incident to the owner of the land or property, or their representative as quickly as possible. If it is an accident that has occurred in a public place there are likely to have an accident report book that they should fill in to keep a record of your details and the injury sustained. Ask to take a copy of this away for your own records, which you can then forward on to Accident Advice Helpline.
Seek medical attention as quickly as possible to ensure your own safety. This will also be added on to your medical records (which we may need to have access to) which will provide further evidence of your injury.
If possible take photographs of the area where the incident occurred. For example, if you tripped over a poorly maintained pathway take a photograph of the section in question just in case this area is fixed before you are able to go back!
Take details of any witnesses that may be able to corroborate your story.
