How do I file a slip and fall injury claim?
You may be asking yourself, “What are the steps involved in taking on or prosecuting a slip and fall or a trip and fall case here in Florida?” Like many cases, one of the important considerations is the evidence. Slip and Fall Injury ClaimWe want to document the scene. We want to take pictures. We want to know if it was a foreign substance that you slipped or tripped over. Sometimes a person may be badly injured, but they may be still able to reach their cell phone to take a picture of whatever that substance was. It’s important that that person notify management to let them know that there was an injury. If, for example, you’re in a grocery store, tell another person who happens to be walking by, “Please contact a manager,” and then someone will get the manager, or, “Please call 9-1-1.” Get the ambulance there and let them know that you’ve been injured, then go to the hospital. Don’t turn away the ambulance. Preserve even the shoes that you were wearing because as the plaintiff, we have the burden to prove every element of the case, and so we want to document absolutely as much as we can in a trip or slip and fall case.
