Question:

How can I prove that I wasn’t at fault for my slip and fall injury?

Answer:

A lot of times in slip and fall cases, there aren’t any witnesses. It’s just one person – you – in a store, on a sidewalk, and you slip and fall and hurt yourself. No one sees it. You go immediately and you make an incident report that you fell. The only way to prove this – that it was not your fault; it was the fault of somebody else – is your testimony and it’s also preserving any evidence there is, whether it’s taking pictures of the surface that day, or shortly thereafter.Proving Fault in Slip and Fall CasesI would suggest that if you’re ever involved in a slip and fall incident, you take pictures immediately with your phone, or have your family members do it, or even have the store take pictures for you because the condition at the time of the slip and fall or the incident that causes problems is extremely important.
