Good documentation helps prove fault in slip-and-fall accidents

The nation's system of justice seeks to be fair to all involved parties. As such, it may be challenging to prove fault when slip-and-fall accidents occur. While the victim is all too familiar with the events leading up to an accident, the court system must be as certain as possible about liability before it makes a decision.

Our attorneys understand how injured Pennsylvania victims can start to feel like criminals when trying to prove fault in slip-and-fall accidents. However, there are methods to help victims strengthen their case. After all, building a strong case improves the odds of success.

One of the most effective ways to prove fault in these cases involves gathering documentation. Our lawyers recommend collecting the following documented evidence as soon as possible after an injury occurs.

Photos: Take pictures and/or videos of the scene of the slip-and-fall accident. Be sure to capture the cause of the fall such as icy conditions or the presence of accident-causing debris. Images of your injuries can also improve your case.

Witness information and statements: If other people were present when your fall occurred, be sure to collect their names and contact information. Your accident attorney will use these statements to help you prove liability.

Treatment reports: Be certain to keep careful records detailing your diagnosis and treatment in the wake of an injury. It is a good idea to keep all medical bills and payment receipts associated with your injuries as well.

The right documented evidence combined with experienced legal counsel is one of the best ways to build a strong foundation for success. We urge you to learn more about your options in the aftermath of a slip-and-fall accident by reading more of our website.
