Frequently Asked Questions About Premises Liability Cases

In the unfortunate event that you or a loved one has suffered a slip and fall accident, there are also a number of important things you should do to maximize the likelihood of receiving the compensation you may be entitled to:

Do I Need to Take Photographs of the Scene?

Yes, be sure to photograph the area where the accident took place and any clothing, shoes, and any injuries that may have occurred as a result of the fall.


What is Physical Evidence in a Slip and Fall Case?

In a slip and fall case, physical evidence is “tangible” evidence. In addition to photographing your shoes, you should discontinue using them and place them in a safe place in order to preserve their condition—especially any substance that may remain beneath the shoes. We recommend that you place them in an old shoebox to lessen deterioration over time.


Do I Need Witnesses?

If someone witnessed your accident and you do not know them, be sure to obtain their contact details (i.e., name, telephone number). In any event, always keep a list of all parties that witnessed the accident.


Do I Need to Report My Accident?

While seeking medical attention for your injuries is the most important concern, if possible, you should absolutely report your accident to appropriate authorities (i.e., a store’s manager). Do not be lulled into providing a vague written statement with comments like, “you only need to provide a summary”. In nearly all cases, the defense will argue any details you add after the fact are exaggerations or worse, outright fabrications.


What Laws Govern my Case?
