a slip and fall. These usually take place on a commercial premises like a store.
READ MOREWhat we have to show in a case like that is important to know in advance.
Just because you fall on somebody’s property, doesn’t mean they’re responsible for you falling and getting injured.
When you’re on someone’s property and you fall, you’re responsible to show that there’s a dangerous condition that existed that caused your fall and that the property owner knew or should have known about it reasonably, so that it could have been repaired before the fall took place.
The common example you see in a slip and fall case for instance is in a grocery store where there’s liquid on the floor. In that case, we would have to show that the liquid was on the floor due to the negligence of the store, and existed long enough there so that the store should have known about it.
If you’re in a slip-and-fall accident, it’s important for you to photograph the scene if you’re able. Of course if you’re too hurt that’s one thing, but if somebody’s with you, immediately have them photograph the scene of the accident.
Look for things that would show that the condition that caused them to fall was there for a period of time longer than a few minutes.
Whenever you’re there try to photograph the scene, photograph anything you think will help when it comes time for us to make a case.
