Birmingham’s Most Trusted Attorneys
Many things can be the culprit and contribute to the incident, such as:
Failure to caution others of these potential risks and hazards, or failure to recognize and remedy a hazardous situation could make the owner liable if you are injured.
These are just a few examples of some typical cases involving slips and falls:
In addition to proving negligence, having evidence is crucial in these types of cases. You need to be able to prove the injuries you sustained as a result of the slip and fall. Having witness’ names, contact information, and statements or testimony, as well as written documentation, photos and videos will help build your case. As far as obtaining video, you need to have your personal injury attorney send a Spoliation Letter to the business where the fall occurred right away. This is a formal request for the business to preserve the video that they could otherwise discard.
Oftentimes, the owner’s insurance company will try to fight the claim by placing blame on the victim. You do not want to sign any papers that the owner’s insurance company offers you without consulting your premises liability attorney.
