The Importance Of A Slip & Fall Attorney
Injuries such as slip and fall accidents occur all the time. In some cases, it is the fault of the injured party if they failed to use reasonable caution or were distracted. On the other hand, if the property owner, property tenant or occupier or even the landlord knew of the risk and failed to repair or fix the problem, they can be held accountable.

Take pictures of the immediate location of the accident and all surrounding areas that were unsafe, damaged or were not properly maintained.
Make sure to also take clear pictures of any visible injuries including swelling, bruising or any other types of injuries.
Find out who owns the property and, if there is video surveillance, immediately make a written request by certified and standard mail for copies of the tapes or digital recordings for a 24-hour time period around the time of the accident.
