How would you handle this situation?

I dropped ds off at daycare and slipped and fell in a huge puddle of water. The water was in the room ds is usually in but since he goes early, he's upstairs until 7:30 and we're told to put the kids belongings in their designated classroom. I have no idea where the water came from but there was no caution signs around. My knee and ankle are killing me right now and I'm thinking about going to the hospital.

Did you tell them you fell and that there was water on the floor?  If no one was in there yet, they may not have known about it.

Did you tell the owner right after you fell ?That would be your first step, then fill out an accident form, then go the hospital and get checked out. If you didnt tell you need to call them . Did anyone see you fall ? If so find out that persons name so you have a witness in case the daycare doesn't believe you.

No I just left out since I was rushing but someone was already there because the lights were on and the door was unlocked.

Have you called and told them?

Surround yourself with people that add to your life not subtract from it.

Contact them and report the accident and say you were hurt...the issue is this-if you say you slipped and fell there-and there is no witness-they might not pay-and then YOUR insurance won't cover it because you slipped and fell somewhere that should have covered it....

No one saw me fall and I didn't
tell anyone. I know that was stupid of me but I did tell my older son when I got back in the car.

How do you know if I have insurance or not? Should I be responsible for the bill?
