Proving Fault in Slip and Fall Accidents (Part B)

Gathering Evidence for Your Slip and Fall Case

When your Philadelphia slip and fall attorney works to prove that the property owner should be held accountable for your injuries, they will likely compile a number of questions to determine whether the property owner's actions were reasonable.

Some of those questions may include:
 

  • How long were the dangerous conditions present before the accident? For example, if a can of paint spilled on aisle 4 of the hardware store and, according to security cameras, it had not been cleaned up for several hours, you could argue that it was unreasonable for the spill to remain for such a lengthy period of time.
  • What is the property owner's daily cleaning schedule and is there proof of this schedule?
  • If you tripped over an object that caused you to fall, why was the object there? If there was a legitimate reason for the object to be there, did that reason still exist at the time of your slip and fall accident?
  • What precautions could the property owner have taken to reduce the likelihood of your slip and fall accident? If the precautionary measure was something as simple as a warning sign, it would have been very unreasonable not to take that precautionary measure.
  • Were there any problems, such as lack of adequate lighting, which were factors in your slip and fall accident? 


If you and your Philadelphia slip and fall attorney can compile evidence that proves the property owner's negligence in maintaining a safe environment, then you will have a good chance recovering compensation.

Compensation in a slip and fall claim may account for:
 

  • current and future medical expenses;
  • pain and suffering; and
  • time missed from work. 


When you hire a Philadelphia slip and fall attorney, you can know that your legal rights will be protected throughout the claims process.
