Automobile collisions represent the most common type of negligent incidents in the District each year. Every day, people are taken to area hospitals in the aftermath of a car collision somewhere in the nation's capital city.

- obtaining witness statements
- exchanging information between parties
- contact law enforcement
- file police report
Premises Liability Cases
The other top incidents that give rise to injuries in the District are those broadly categorized as premises liability cases. These are cases in which the person who controls certain premises, including stores, restaurants, and even a private residence, have a duty to keep the property in a reasonably safe condition.
The most common type of premises liability cases in Washington, D.C., are those involving slips and falls. Slip and fall cases most commonly occur in stores and even restaurants. However, they can occur almost anywhere, when a hazard is left unattended on the floor.
