Any incident report should include the following:

  • When you fell – the date and approximate time.
  • Where you fell – the address, name of the business, and description of the precise spot, such as in the lobby near the elevators, for example.
  • Why you fell – what caused you to slip — for example, you stepped in a puddle of water and slipped. Note whether there were any signs in the area warning of the wet floor.
  • How you are feeling – a detailed account of all your symptoms, such as the location of everywhere that you have pain, stiffness, throbbing, redness, and anything else you have noticed.

Also, be sure to write down when you reported the incident and who you reported it to.
