Important tip for slip and fall accident victims: Take pictures as soon as possible
You slipped and fell through no fault of your own. You might think you have a strong case, but without photographic evidence it may be a case of your word versus the word of the property owner. You might be surprised to know that premises owners might destroy evidence of your slip and fall accident. You may have tripped over an object left in a path by an employee. That object might "disappear" after you file a claim. Without a photograph, you case may be hard to prove.
You can use your cell phone or ask someone else to take a photograph of the hazard that led to the accident. A first responder or even the owner of the premises might take photos of the scene, but don't count on that.
Slip and fall accidents in Orlando can be complicated. We can help
Slip and fall accidents happen for many reasons. Sometimes, custodians cleaning a floor in a lobby or shopping mall or another public area leave water on the floor. Other times, poor drainage or lack of proper maintenance results in hazardous conditions, which can lead to a slip and fall accident.
Other contributing factors in a slip and fall accident:
- Hazardous conditions, such as uneven or slippery surfaces and insufficient lighting.
- Unsafe stairways, such as lacking suitable railings, adequate lighting, or passable width
- Hazards or obstacles in sidewalks or walkways.
The following are a few locations where such accidents may occur:
- Theme parks
- Supermarkets such as Publix
- Retails stores such as Walmart
- Parking lots
- Shopping malls
- Department stores
Whatever the reason and wherever the incident happens, property owners have a responsibility to keep their walkways and other public spaces safe. When they don't and accidents happen, property owners need to be held accountable.
