Do You Have a Case?
When it comes to premises liability cases, photographic or videographic evidence holds a great deal of weight. Surveillance video, in particular, can serve as a critical piece of evidence. Photos of your injuries and medical documentation from a physician are also essential.
Along with having proper evidence, it’s important that your story is clear, concise, and thorough. This includes knowing exactly how you became injured. For instance, if you were injured on a sidewalk, what was the condition of the sidewalk when you fell? Was it covered in snow or was there a huge crack? Maybe it was extremely icy or a big chunk was missing altogether. If there were any witnesses, it’s important that we gather their contact information, as well as their firsthand stories to help with the investigation.

She sustained a fractured elbow, which had to be repaired surgically. We also helped a 78-year-old man receive a settlement of $2,875,000 after falling on a defective staircase outside of a medical building. He sustained a serious central cord spinal injury as a result of the fall.
