Immediate Investigation in Slip and Fall Cases
Whenever possible, we take great care to immediately document the cause of a slip and fall. While we understand that not all victims contact an attorney as soon as an accident happens, we encourage them to do so. This gives us the opportunity to go straight to the scene and get photographs of the design defect, spill or other problem that caused the accident. Documentation is the cornerstone of a successful case.
This documentation is helpful in proving that a property owner failed to fulfill their duty to keep visitors safe. Of course, if it is not available, we have other options as well. Our experience means that we know where to look to find the evidence we need to build a strong case.
Negligence Comes in Many Forms
Sometimes, negligence is obvious. A clear example is a grocery store with a leaking freezer that had been leaving puddles in the aisle for days prior to the accident, but the owners never bothered to put up warning signs.
However, negligence isn't always so obvious. Modern construction materials are available to stores that can minimize the possibility of slips, trips and falls that cause broken bones, fractures and other injuries. Many businesses fail to take advantage of these options.
