Fort Lauderdale slip and fall attorneys helping victims in Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach and other Florida counties.
The truth is if you can’t prove what was wrong with the property, we may not be able to recover for you.
At Madalon Law, we take slip-and-fall cases very seriously because we have taken them to court and we know the level of proof that is needed.
You will find on our website many comments about building a case, so let’s talk about what you can do to make sure the evidence is secure in a slip and fall.
- In a slip and fall you must take photos of everything. If there was a spill or puddle, you need to take pictures. Get photos. If your cellphone does not have a camera, ask someone else to do it.
- Get the contact info of all witnesses. Get their names and contact phone numbers.
- Save the clothes you are wearing and do not wash them. The reason for this is because those clothes will have stains on them. Those stains can prove that there was something on the floor. It could be frozen yogurt that melted, a grape, a banana, washing detergent or anything else.
- Save your shoes because there may be a substance at the bottom of them we could diagnose later. This means please do not continue walking on them. Doing this will remove the evidence that might make all the difference in your case.
If there is anything else you can gather at the scene, than try to do it then. If you are not able to do this because you are injured and are being taken to the hospital, then get someone else to do it for you.
Once you leave, that evidence is gone. Guess what the companies and the stores tend to do with the video surveillance in situations like this? It gets recorded over, tends to disappear and is no longer available. The defendant does not play fair. The fact is it is your burden to prove the case. The Fort Lauderdale slip and fall attorneys at Madalon Law will teach you how. You need to get to us immediately and we will get our investigators out there. The sooner we do this, the better chances for us to win your case.
We have a success rate when going to court against large corporations and supermarkets that you likely buy your groceries from.
