Slip And Fall Personal Injury Attorney Rockford

Strong Evidence for Slip and Fall Cases

Injuries sustained from a serious fall can result in pain, time off work, high medical expenses, and a number of other life-altering changes. In these cases, the victim must ask themselves if the accident, and therefore their injuries, would have occurred if a specific property related circumstance had been addressed, such as salting an icy walkway or fixing a broken step.

If you have reason to believe your accident could have been avoided, it is time to reach out to a personal injury attorney so they can examine your case.

Continue reading in order to learn about important pieces of evidence that will be beneficial in any slip and fall case.


There are many different things that will qualify as valuable evidence when filing a claim in a slip and fall injury case, such as pictures of the scene of the accident, and eyewitness reports (this includes police and emergency personnel). Additionally, medical bills will go a long way in proving the injuries you sustained, as well as immediate financial loss.

You can also put together a written account of your injuries immediately after the accident occurs, so as not to forget any important details. Property or business records may also provide evidence of a history of poor maintenance and lack of premises care, such as cleaning policies and copies of past property inspections. This will help determine whether or not a property owner was taking adequate care to maintain safety on the property, and if premises liability could be a part of the case.

Finally, providing proof of lost wages (anticipated and current), proof of pain and suffering, as well as any other losses garnered due to the accident (i.e. transportation expenses), can and should be presented in a slip and fall case.
