Gathering Evidence for Your Slip and Fall Case

Property owners in California have a duty to keep their premises in a reasonably safe condition. If they fail to perform adequate maintenance or warn guests about hazardous conditions, they may be held liable for any damages that result. As a slip and fall victim, it is your task to show this neglect and failure through concrete evidence. Unfortunately, the evidence needed to prove liability and damages in slip and fall cases is often time-sensitive. That means you must contact a slip and fall lawyer as soon as possible to launch an immediate investigation. Below are a few types of evidence that might help your attorney prove liability:

  • Surveillance recordings of your accident;
  • Eyewitness testimony;
  • Records of past injuries that occurred on the same property;
  • Photographs of the hazard that caused your injuries;
  • Property maintenance records; and
  • The police and incident reports.

After demonstrating the defendant is liable for your damages, your slip and fall lawyer must prove the types of damages you incurred and their value. In the state of California, personal injury claimants may be able to pursue compensation for:

  • Healthcare expenses;
  • Lost income and loss of future earnings;
  • Home care, childcare, and other objectively verifiable costs arising from the injuries;
  • Emotional distress;
  • Loss of consortium;
  • Loss of enjoyment in life; and
  • Pain and suffering.

If the defendant’s behavior was fraudulent, oppressive, or malicious—which is rare in premises liability cases—punitive damages may also be awarded. These are intended to punish the defendant and to prevent similar misconduct in the future.
