Build an Effective, Systematic Orlando Slip and Fall Case

Orlando Slip and Fall AttorneyIn order to prove a slip and fall case, you are required to show that the slip and fall was caused by a dangerous condition on the property and that the owner was aware of the condition that led to the slip and fall.

The condition must create an unreasonable risk to those on the property and must be something that a reasonable person would not have foreseen. In order to prove that there was a dangerous condition and that the property owner was aware of the dangerous condition leading to the slip and fall, you must prove the following:

  • The property owner caused the dangerous condition
  • The property owner was aware of the condition and was negligent in failing to fix it; or
  • That the condition persisted for a long enough time that a reasonable person should have discovered and corrected the condition before the slip and fall

To prove a slip and fall case, you must show that it is foreseeable that the negligence would lead to the accident at issue. An example is where a beverage is spilled at a gas station and remains on the floor all day long leading to an accident. In such a scenario it is foreseeable that the gas station’s negligence in failing to clean up the spill would lead to the slip and fall accident, and you would be able to recover for your injuries related to the slip and fall accident.

Other instances exist where the case may be very clear, as in cases where the property owner or business owner failed to follow safety regulations or laws relating to safety railings, lighting or other building code violations.

Gathering Evidence

To help prove the property owner was negligent, your slip and fall attorney will gather evidence shortly after the slip and fall. He or she will take photographs of your injury, obtain your medical records and question witnesses to the hazard or incident. If the accident occurred in a public place, such as a grocery store, your attorney will obtain a copy of the accident report. It is important to contact an attorney soon after a slip and fall, as witnesses can forget vital details and key pieces of evidence can be lost.

In theory, Orlando slip and fall cases may sound simple. But practically speaking, nuances abound.
