What mistakes should I avoid after a slip and fall injury?
Mistakes often happen in the beginning of a slip and fall case. When you first fall, whether at a retailer or a fast food restaurant, you may not realize in the moment that you’re going to be involved in a personal injury case. These are mistakes that you can and should avoid, however, to protect your case. The primary mistake that clients make is not making a report. They slip and fall, they get hurt, they’re embarrassed… and they don’t bother to go speak with anybody in charge. If you’ve fallen within the last 48 hours and you’re looking at our website, go back to that store and make a report.
The second mistake people make is they don’t preserve evidence. A lawyer can help you with that. We can send out a letter and ask for the preservation of surveillance video, for example. Videos can get erased, so you want to make sure that the owner preserves the video.
A third mistake people often make is not taking any photos to document the scene. Capturing photographic evidence of what caused your slip and fall is essential to your case. Three years from now when you’re in front of a jury, you want to have that photo to describe what caused your injury.
