Slip and Fall Accidents: Proving Property Owner's Negligence
While sometimes slip-and-fall accidents are clearly caused by the negligence of property owners, in many other cases the identity of the liable party is not so obvious. In general, those injured in slip-and-fall accidents are entitled to compensation if they can prove negligence in one of three ways:
The property owner or his employees created the dangerous condition
The property owner knew about the dangerous condition but negligently failed to fix it
Although the property owner did not know about the dangerous condition, it existed for such a length of time that any reasonable person should have discovered and fixed it
Relevant Evidence in a Slip and Fall Lawsuit
If you are involved in a slip fall accident, The Law Offices of Sean M. Cleary have put together some relevant pieces of advice that will help you obtain monetary compensation from the party at fault:
Avoid making statements right after the accident and without consulting your attorney
Obtain the names of owners and managers of the premises where the accident happened
Write down the names and contact details of witnesses
Write down everything you remember relevant for the moments when you had the accident: obvious defects or dangerous conditions, objects that may have contributed to the fall, the presence or lack of warning signs around the premises that may have alerted people of the potential danger. The more details you remember and write down about the accident, the faster your case will advance
Photograph the scene of the accident and your injuries
Save clothing and footwear you were wearing during the accident
Seek medical attention even if the injuries are superficial. Provide the doctor with as much information as possible and get an accurate medical report and diagnosis. This will be helpful for legal and health reasons at the same time
Do not agree to give recorded statements to insurance representatives.
What If the Insurance Company of a Miami Shopping Center Wants a Statement After I Slipped and Fell? »
If the insurance company of a Miami shopping center where you slipped and fell asks for your statement you must not give them one. It is crucial never to give statements to insurance companies without an attorney advising you. Insurance companies will attempt to maximize your fault and minimize that of the business where the incident occurred, to pay no compensation or the minimum compensation required. With the help of an attorney, you can receive fair compensation.
In order to win a slip and fall settlement, you need to prove that the owner of the property where the incident happened is guilty of creating the dangerous condition that led to the incident, of being aware of the situation, and of failing to act upon this knowledge, thus creating favorable conditions for your injuries to happen.
