Individuals and businesses that open their property to the public or to selected people have a legal responsibility to protect you from dangers that exist on the property, either by removing those dangers or by giving adequate warning of them. If you’ve been injured due to a slip and fall on someone else’s property, we may be able to help you get compensation for your injuries, lost wages, and other damages.
Getting the Evidence to Support Your Claim
Successfully pursuing a slip and fall claim generally requires a great deal of evidence, as well as your testimony, as the injured party.
If you believe you have a slip and fall claim, be sure to:
- Take pictures of the location where the incident took place, particularly if you can do so at the same time of day.
- Write down your exact recollection of what happened.
- Get contact information for anyone who may have witnessed the incident.
If you have been unable to do any of the above, it’s still a good idea to contact one of our attorneys and discuss the exact circumstances of your slip and fall case.
Exploring Other Premises Liability Issues
Slip and fall incidents are covered by the area of law traditionally known as premises liability. Other incidents that occur due to negligence on the part of a property owner, including inadequate security protection, are also covered by premises liability law.
