Businesses Will Deny Any Wrongdoing

It is common practice for a business owner to deny any wrongdoing on their part. Because of this, it is up to you to quickly collect as much evidence on site as you can to prove that your claim is valid and that the premises was not in safe condition. For example, if you suffered an injury due to a slip and fall, take these steps to gather evidence of negligence:

  • Determine what exactly caused the fall. Was the floor wet or greasy? Were there cords obstructing the walkway? Did you slip on ice?
  • In order to cover the accident up and hide their negligence, a business may clean up the mess or fix the problem that caused you to slip and fall. They may do this right after you leave to go to the hospital or other medical facility.
  • File a report with the management for written proof of the accident.
  • Collect eyewitness testimony and contact information.
  • The shoes you were wearing are part of the evidence. Keep them at home and in the same condition they were in when you fell. Do not wear them any more.
  • Seek medical attention for you injuries and have an honest discussion with your doctor. Everything the two of you talk about can be used as evidence. If the injury was a preexisting condition, do not lie about it. Likewise, do not downplay the injuries you sustained or refrain from seeking out medical attention.
