To prove another person or entity’s negligence caused your slip and fall accident, the law requires you to prove they owed you a reasonable duty of care, did not provide it, caused your physical injuries, and subsequent financial damages.
We help you understand how you prove negligence in a slip and fall accident, compile evidence that supports your assertions, assign a financial value to your lawsuit, and compel the at-fault party to fairly compensate you for your accident-related damages.
How Will You Prove the Cause of My Slip and Fall Accident?
When we take on your case, we immediately go to work proving the cause of your slipping and falling. Your evidence might include a police report or an internal accident report depending on where your accident occurred. Either way, we obtain a copy of this report to start building your case file, which will also include:
- Medical records
- Photos of your injuries
- Pictures of the accident scene
- Witness statements
- Available video footage
With guidance and direction from our firm, you can hold the at-fault party accountable for your financial damages.
Potential Slip and Fall Causes
According to recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) statistics, residential falls can be caused by broken or uneven stairs and walkways, clutter, and debris. In addition, causes can include unattended spills, wet stairs, or stairs covered with snow or ice.
Similarly, according to Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) statistics, falls are the most common causes of work-related injuries and fatalities. When we represent you, we will help you identify the cause of your fall and prove your right to financial recovery from the at-fault party.

How do You Determine the Potential Value of My Slip and Fall Claim?
Determining what your case is worth can be a complex process. We will work with you to assess the injury and injury-related portions of your potential compensation package. The economic damages we help you recover can include:
- Medical expenses
- Assistive medical devices
- Lost wages
- Property damage
- In-home assistance
In addition to economic damages, we also help you pursue non-economic damages, such as:
- Long-term disability
- Lasting disfigurement
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Emotional trauma
You do not have to make these detailed financial assessments on your own or worry about miscalculations or omissions. Instead, when we represent you, we help you understand how your slip and fall injuries, their severity, your recovery time, and your prognosis for the future determine the value of your non-economic damages.
Prove the Value of Your Recoverable Damages
Proving the costs associated with your current and future accident-related expenses can be a complex and confusing process that involves a myriad of paperwork. Our slip and fall attorney will help you obtain the needed evidence and present it to the at-fault party’s representatives. As part of your overall case file, our team will include a section of documents that prove the value we assign to your case. It will consist of items such as:
- Bills and receipts
- Written estimates
- Medical records
- Written prognosis
- Pay stubs
We may ask for other items depending on your specific losses and sources of income. We also help you obtain these items if needed, ensure your evidence file proves the value of your case, and ensure it is not valued too early or inadequately.
