Pictures in a Slip and Fall Case

Slip and Fall

In a Slip and Fall accident one of the major issues that will be raised by the property owner, is whether or not their negligence caused a slip and fall.  A basic tenant of Slip and Fall law is that a property owner must have negligently allowed some dangerous condition to exist on their property and this caused your injury.  Without some form of negligence on the part of the property owner it is going to be difficult for even the best Slip and Fall Attorneys to recover anything for you.

As such, one of the best things that you can do following a Slip and Fall is have pictures taken of the area.  You will help your Slip and Fall Attorneys if this is done as soon after the Slip and Fall as possible, so that your Slip and Fall Attorneys can see the condition that caused your accident and show this to others; in Slip and Fall cases a picture really is worth a thousand words.  While it is difficult to remember this right after a fall and injury, it is important to take the pictures as soon as possible because as time passes spills are cleaned up, ice melts and trash is removed.  Thus, waiting too long to get a picture of the conditions that caused a Slip and Fall may cause the pictures to be of little value to you and your Slip and Fall Attorneys.  Finally, you should get multiple pictures of the dangerous condition and multiple angles.  The better you can show the accident site, the more these pictures will help you and your Slip and Fall Attorneys.
