Evidence in Slip and Fall Cases

Premises Liability Lawyers Representing Residents of Cape Cod

The Cape Cod slip and fall attorneys at the Law Offices of John C. Manoog, III help people injured in accidents pursue the full compensation available under the law. Our firm draws on nearly 150 years of combined legal experience to offer clients comprehensive and personalized representation services. Our premises liability lawyers fight aggressively from the outset to build strong cases for the victims whom we represent. This allows them to focus on their physical recuperation with the confidence that comes from knowing that we are working diligently to maximize their remedies. Part of this process involves collecting evidence in slip and fall cases that demonstrates a defendant’s liability.

Proving a Slip and Fall Accident Case

Some slip and falls may seem fairly minor, but these accidents may cause serious, lasting injuries and may sometimes even result in death. Slick or unsteady surfaces are often hard to spot, and circumstances may leave little opportunity to brace yourself for a fall. This is why state law puts the burden on property owners to keep their premises in a relatively safe condition and to warn people of any hazards of which the owner knows or should know through reasonable inspection. A property owner that does not live up to this duty is likely to be liable for any injuries that result.

To prove that a property owner should be liable, you need evidence. Some of the most important evidence in slip and fall cases describes the hazardous condition that caused the fall and demonstrates that the property owner knew or should have known about the condition at the time. This may include security camera footage or photos of the area taken before, during, and after the accident. Witness testimony is also often helpful. If the accident happened at a business establishment, for example, employees may be able to testify about the condition of the property and whether anyone noticed the hazard before the slip and fall happened. Customers and other eyewitnesses may also explain how the accident occurred.

Medical evidence is another important piece of the puzzle. To get compensation in a slip and fall case, you not only need to show that the property owner was responsible for the accident but also must prove that you were injured in the accident. This part of the claim requires detailed medical documentation, including hospital and treatment records. Evidence in slip and fall cases may also include testimony from a doctor or another expert about the extent of the injuries and their potential future impact on your quality of life.
