What Evidence Should I Keep In A Slip And Fall Case?

January 28, 2022

Hello, Andy Rosenberg here from Rosenberg Law Firm and today we’re going to talk about premise liability injuries commonly known as slip and fall cases and specifically two pieces of evidence you should preserve if you were injured on someone else’s property whether it was a business like a grocery store or a neighborhood event or even a public sidewalk.

Look, we can all be clumsy at times often leading to just a moment of embarrassment, but if you fell due to the carelessness or negligence of someone else and find yourself injured, well, that’s a totally different story.

Premises liability claims can be difficult to prove but I’m here to help you improve the likelihood of winning your case by preserving specific evidence.

First, and I know this may sound crazy, but preserve your shoes immediately. You want the shoes you are wearing when you were injured in a slip and fall to remain in the same condition they were when the injury happened. I’m not joking. Take photos that are time and date stamped of your shoes especially the soles. Put them in a box or sealed bag and do not wear them again at least until the case is settled.

Second, in order to prove a business or property owner’s negligence, take several photos of the accident scene. You need to take pictures or video of where you fell immediately after your accident prior to the property owner cleaning up or repairing the hazardous condition that caused your fall in the first place. If you’ve been injured in Florida at a business or on someone’s property due to their negligence you should speak to an experienced premise liability lawyer as soon as possible. You can call me directly at my coral springs office at 954-755-7803 or by emailing me at [email protected]. As always be certain to visit my website rosenberglawform.net for more valuable information regarding slip and fall accidents.
