We Have the Experience and Expertise to Fight for Your Rights
Based on these statistics, it is not a surprise that slip and fall injuries lead to premises liability lawsuits on a regular basis against retail stores. Falls occur in a great variety of public places – supermarkets, department stores, airports, sports stadiums, you name it. From the injured party’s standpoint, fall injuries can be devastating but they are not always attributable to a party’s negligence or, if there is negligence, it may be difficult to prove. If you have been injured in such a fall, to fully assert your rights you need an experienced personal injury attorney to help you evaluate the possibilities of recovery in your case. Our firm has successfully processed thousands of slip and fall claims and in doing so we are fully aware of the retail industry’s standard of care. We know the necessity of utilizing knowledgeable and experienced experts and building a client’s case through discovery. We take into consideration the retail industry’s cumulative background in and acquired knowledge of safety and fall prevention. It becomes essential to develop documented evidence about the relevant retail store’s safety standards and guidelines and the industry and legal authority on which they are based.
Proof of Negligence
In many store premises liability cases, video evidence is filmed by store cameras to capture and preserve the store conditions. If it can be obtained through investigation and discovery, it can become a critical factor in winning your case. If video evidence is helpful to the defense, it is often readily available for viewing. If it is harmful, it is often overwritten or even destroyed by the negligent party or even their attorneys. These acts amount to spoliation of evidence and can provide a separate legal theory upon which recovery can be predicated. A good trial advocate will be persistent and will be unrelenting in his fight for the video.
